Diseases ar e major constraints to groundnut production throughout the world. This handbook is designed to assist agricultural research and extension workers, wh o may have little formal training in plant pathology, to make tentative diagnosis of diseases of groundnut caused by 31 fungi, 2 bacteria. 9 viruses, a mycoplasma-like organism, 4 nematodes, and a parasitic flowering plant. The most characteristic field symptoms of each disease are Illustrated and descr ibed. It is emphasized that for confirmation of field diagnosi s the assistance of skilled plant pathologists will be requi red in most cases.
