Almond diseases.

This chapter aims to provide an overview of up-to-date knowledge on major diseases affecting almond, and it is intended to be applicable worldwide. It is divided into five sections. The first section describes diseases caused by graft-transmissible pathogens (viruses, viroids and phytoplasmas). The second section includes bacterial diseases. The third section describes diseases caused by fungi and fungal-like organisms. The fourth section includes nematodes, while the final section describes some disorders with unknown aetiologies. Each section includes a review of the disease distribution and importance, the causal agent(s), symptoms useful for diagnosis, and ecological and epidemiological information, as well as integrated management practices.
