Chapter 1 (Page no: 3)

Apple and pear.

This chapter describes both fungal and bacterial diseases (including soilborne) of apple and pear, and their control, using pesticides, cultural methods, resistant rootstocks and other methods. The major fungal diseases of apple in most temperate regions are scab (Venturia inaequalis) and powdery mildew (Podosphaera leucotricha), although apple scab occurs wherever apples are grown in the world.
