Diseases of Edible Oilseed Crops presents an unprecedentedly thorough collection of information on the diseases of cultivated annual oilseed crops, including peanut, rapeseed-mustard, sesame, soybean, sunflower, and safflower. Written by internationally recognized researchers, this book covers and integrates worldwide literature in the field up to 2014, setting it apart from other books that are only of regional importance.

The book focuses on major diseases of economic importance to each crop. Each chapter is devoted to a type of crop and a profile of affecting diseases according to geographical occurrence, epidemiology, symptoms, causal pathogens, host-pathogen interactions, biotechnological aspects, and the latest approaches to understanding host-pathogen interactions. It also includes discussions on developments on controversial subjects in research in order to stimulate thinking and further conversation with an eye toward improvements and resolutions.

Research on oilseed crop diseases has expanded tremendously in the past 30 years, primarily as an effort to reduce losses to various stresses, including crop diseases. In the war against hunger and malnutrition, it is necessary to enhance and update knowledge about crop diseases and managing them. By compiling decades of information from previously scattered research into a single globally minded volume, Diseases of Edible Oilseed Crops provides these much-needed updates and enhancements.

Chirantan Chattopadhyay is currently the director of the National Research Centre for Integrated Pest Management (NCIPM) at New Delhi, India under the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) system. He holds a doctorate in plant pathology from the Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi, and is a fellow of the Indian National Academy of Agricultural Sciences. He has more than 25 years of experience in oilseed crop disease management research and has significantly contributed in the area of understanding the host-pathogen interactions, epidemiology, and integrated disease management in sunflower, safflower, sesame, peanut, and rapeseed-mustard crops. He has published more than 70 peer-reviewed full research papers and four books. He has won several academic awards and holds one patent. S.J. Kolte has 36 years of experience in teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the Department of Plant Pathology, G.B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology, Pantnagar, India. He has contributed outstanding research work in the area of oilseed crop pathology, including work on induced host resistance, genetics of host resistance, and development of a new concept of the Divya Mustard ideotype. He has published eight books, 125 research papers, and several review articles and book chapters. He has received several awards, including the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Society for Rapeseed-Mustard Research, the Y.L. Nene Outstanding Best Teacher award by the Indian Society of Mycology and Plant Pathology, and the IPS Recognition Award by the Indian Phytopathological Society. Farid Waliyar is a principal scientist of plant pathology at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT). He is currently ICRISAT director for West and Central Africa. He holds a PhD in plant pathology from the University of Paris M&C, where he specialized in the area of research on the role of Aspergillus flavus, safety measures for aflatoxin contamination, and other soil fungi on peanuts and their evolution during the cropping season in Senegal. He has 30 years of experience in strategic and basic research related to the development of integrated crop disease management, particularly in the peanut crop. He has produced more than 200 publications, supervised and examined several undergraduate, MS, and PhD students, and received several award.
