Diseases of Bamboos in Asia
Bamboos form the backbone of the rural economy of many Asian countries. Although considered very hardly plants, bamboos do, from time to time, suffer from diseases. Bamboos are now increasingly being grown in plantations, and this necessitates increased vigilance against disease attacks, and preparedness for effective and rapid control if the attack occurs.
This landmark publication makes vital information on bamboo diseases widely available, and is expected to stimulate further research and the development of appropriate control measures.
