To meet the edible oil demands of ever increasing population, agricultural production is being augmented through the use of new crop varieties and changed economic practices. These practices have enormously increased the incidence of several pests and diseases. Plant diseases cause serious threats to the successful cultivation of oilseed crops resulting in huge losses in their yields. The present book entitled “Diseases of Oilseed Crops and their Management" includes twelve chapters contributed by eminent researchers in their respective fields. This book focuses primarily on diseases and management of groundnut, linseed, castor, safflower, sesame, soybean, sunflower, rapeseed mustard and niger. The symptoms, causal organism, etiology, disease cycle, epidemiology and management strategies of diseases is presented in this book. Besides these, the breeding for disease resistance in Indian mustard and biotechnology for genetic improvement of oilseed crops are also included. We hope that this book will be of immense use to researchers, teachers, students, plant pathologists, consultants and extension functionaries who concerned with the disease management in the field crop. This book is also used as reference cum textbook in the field of plant pathology.
