Today pests account for about 40 per cent loss of agricultural yield not withstanding losses due to heavy application of chemicals. The present books cover information on antimicrobial properties of species, plant parasitic nematodes of pulses and bacterial in management of plant parasitic nematodes. The acute shortage of food supplies in several countries and the rapid in several countries and the rapid increase in population have, in recent years brought to the forefront the dire necessity to conserve as much of the crop yields as possible by reducing the losses caused by diseases. To check plant diseases it becomes necessary to know about the cause of the disease, life history of the causal organism and of the meteorological conditions which influence the host and parasite interaction.
