Additional Information



Pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.) is one of the most important grain legume components of subsistence farming systems in the semi-arid tropics. Many fungi, viruses, nematodes, bacteria, and mycoplasmalike 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 provided on control measures includes the use of resistant varieties, cultural practices and chemicals. Supporting literature on the major diseases is listed.
