Hemp is enjoying a worldwide resurgence. This unique book combines a review of the hemp pest and disease literature published over the past 50 years with up-to-date information on modern biological control techniques. Each pest and disease organism is presented in the same format, covering economic impact, geographical and host-plant range, plant symptoms, taxonomic description, life history, and differential diagnosis. Important cultural, mechanical, biological and chemical controls are highlighted with charts, illustrations and explicit instructions. Easy-to-use keys are included for rapid identification of the most common pests. Introductory chapters describe the general principles of plant protection, requirements for healthy plant growth, and taxonomy of parasites and pathogens.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Spending several years on this project, McPartland et al have produced a useful and beautiful tome. Their work combines a review of the relevant literature published over the past half century with modern information on biological control techniques (the 22-page bibliography might be worth the cost
of the book itself to some). Each pest and diseases organism is presented in similar, encyclopaedia-style format. Entries cover factors like economic impact, geographical and host-plant range, plant symptoms, taxonomic description, life history, and differential diagnosis. Excellent line drawings
and photographs (including 86 colour plates) complement the information. As well, introductory chapters describe general principles of plant protection, requirements for healthy plant growth and the taxonomy of parasites and pathogens. ... Thorough, colourful and engrossing, Hemp Diseases and Pests
is a hemp publishing event. Recommended."--The Hemp Commerce & Farming Report
