Compendium of Hop Diseases and Pests

Edited by Walter Mahaffee, Sarah Pethybridge, and David H. Gent

Compendium of Hop Diseases and Pests is a comprehensive and authoritative account of diseases and pests of hop as well as numerous other disorders and injuries that impact this valuable specialty crop. This compendium is a practical reference for anyone interested in healthy, high-quality hop, which in addition to brewing, is showing promise for use in sugar processing and as a preservative in ethanol production and for its potential use as an antimicrobial additive in animal feed.

More than 140 color images are presented with expert scientifically peer-reviewed descriptions of the identifying characteristics of disease and pest symptoms and their causal agents. This book also provides an overview of the taxonomy and botanical traits of the genus Humulus. It provides insight into cone uses and chemistry, methods for hop production, and an extensive list of hop cultivars and their characteristics. The description of each disease or pest includes a general account of its importance and world distribution, symptoms, causal organism or agent, disease cycle and epidemiology, management, and selected references. The references document the descriptions and provide resources for additional information.
