Pasture Diseases in New Zealand is the first comprehensive illustrated guide to diseases of pasture grasses and legumes to be published in New Zealand. It provides concise descriptions and clear colour photographs of disease symptoms, and illustrates the pathogens causing respective diseases. The colour photographs are excellent aids to diagnoses, and the life cycle diagrams provide valuable background information. This 144 page book is a first-rate addition to the New Zealand plant protection literature, and it will become an essential part of basic information for farmers, pasture agronomists and students.
