Though different titles of plant protection books are available, no book is as much illustrative as the present book of Plant Health Medicines.

The book ''A Handbook on Plant Health Medicines” is prepared with an objective to make available the scientific as well as working knowledge of useful and recommended plant protection and plant health medicines to the personnel associated with agriculture in different capacities and at different levels, and to the end users, i.e. farmers. The book contains three sections viz. chemical molecules for control of plant diseases, chemical molecules to control plant physiological process and physiological disorders, and Pesticides for management of plant insect pests.

These three sections are divided into 30 chapters. The respective section has got images of all the representative diseases, pests, as well as mineral deficiencies symptoms for the identification of the cause and different molecules for their control and rectification, thus making the book more practical use oriented to all personnel associated with agriculture sector. With its availability particularly, to pesticide shop dealers and farmers, the proper plant protection and plant health medicines will be applied in the agricultural ecosystem to manage the problem associated with plant health.

Prof. S.G. Borkar, is an alumni of Indian Agricultural Research Institure New Delhi for his Masters and Doctorate degree in Plant Pathology (1977-1983), a French govt scholar for post-doctorate at INRA, Angers France in 1984, and had his Doctorate of Science (D.Sc) in Plant Pathology in 1999 from Internation University, Washington, USA.
