This database is designed in the disease aspect of horticultural crops.
You can find the species affecting different crops and also the management
methods that are developed and are being used effectively. We also integrate
a literature database which contains abstracts of publications on phytophtora
from the pubmed database.
This database is developed primarily from the information generated
through a National network project on Phytophthora Diseases of Horticultural
Crops (PHYTONET) funded by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research
[ICAR], New Delhi, India, for the period September 1997 to August 2002.
Some of the informations about crops are collected from Wikipedia the free
The Phytophthora species affecting various crops have been obtained from
the book Phytophthora Worldwide by Donald C. Erwin, Olaf K. Ribeiro 1996
printed by APS Press.
