The paper gives an overview of the seedbome pests and diseases of soybean, cowpca. green gram, chickpea, pigeonpea. and peanut, which can all be used in rotation with rice. Insect pests, nematodes, and diseases of common occurrence, potentially important ones that can occasionally become serious, and those that cause great economic losses are listed. The distribution of pests and diseases is also given, along with the rate of seed transmission of important virus diseases and data on crop losses. Safeguards arc discussed to check the spread of pests and diseases that can be introduced through exchange of legume seeds, thus countering any benefit likely to be derived from a legume rice rotation.
