This landmark reference contains the global sorghum and millet pathology community's decennial summary of diseases and work in progress based primarily on contributions to the Third Global Conference on Sorghum and Millets Diseases in September 2000, sponsored by INTSORMIL, ICRISAT, and INIFAP. Editor John Leslie has expanded the book's coverage beyond the conference presentations to guarantee a well-rounded treatment of sorghum and millet diseases. One hundred and ninety-seven authors from thirty countries contribute to a truly global picture.This critical review provides a unique, long-term analysis of different issues during the last quarter century, a summary of the current critical problems, and an evaluation of the sorghum and millet community's progress since its previous meeting in 1988. Perhaps the book's greatest value lies in defining the research agenda for these crops and their diseases for the next ten years. As such, it is an indispensable resource for plant pathologists and other crop scientists, policy makers, sociologists, and others involved in tropical or subtropical agriculture.
