Additional Information



Pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.) is one of t h e most important grain legume components of subsistence farming systems in t h e semi-arid tropics. Many fungi, viruses, nematodes, bacteria, and mycoplasma-like organisms attack pigeonpea, but only a few of these are important constraints to pigeonpea production. This bulletin provides information on the causal agents, distribution, economic importance, symptoms, epidemiology, and management of major diseases of pigeonpea. The text is supplemented with color photographs of disease symptoms and a diagnostic key is included to facilitate identification. Information is provided on control measures that include the use of resistant varieties, cultural practices, and chemicals. Supporting literature on the major diseases is listed.
