The present book on “Diseases of Wheat and their Management” is the most comprehensive compilation of key issues of wheat diseases and their management approaches. It has detailed descriptions about epidemiology including outbreak most devastating and fast evolving stem rust race Ug99, genetics and management of wheat rusts; spot blotch a devastating menace to wheat in North-Eastern Plain Zone of India, much concerned Karnal bunt problem in North-Western Plain Zone of India. The current status of Fusarium head blight of wheat and barley of our country has been greatly emphasized along with its integrated management strategy.
Several important seed borne diseases have been presented with respect to their identification and management. Recent information have also been incorporated about major plant parasitic nematodesof wheat and barley viz., wheat seed gall nematode (Anguina tritici), cereal cyst nematode (CCN)- Heterodera spp., root knot nematode (Meloidogyne graminicola), stunt nematode (Tylenchorhynchus spp.) and lesion nematode (Pratylenchus spp.) that cause huge losses.Moreover, it has current information on effect of micronutrients with respect to management of wheat and barley diseases as well as abiotic stress specially to heat and salinity tolerance in wheat. Hence, the present book will surely be useful to graduate and post-graduate students,teachers and research scientists of Agriculture, Plant Pathology, Plant Protection, Botany and Microbiology.

Dr. Shyam Saran Vaish received his M.Sc. (Ag.) and Ph.D. degrees in Mycology and Plant Pathology from Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, in 1990 and 1998, respectively. Following Ph.D., he served as Part-Time Lecturer-Plant Pathology at the Udai Pratap Autonomous College, Varanasi and in the Tilak Dhari P G College, Jaunpur in 1995 and during 1997-1998, respectively. Thereafter, he served for more than five years as Assistant Professor-Cum-Junior Scientist (Plant Pathology) in the Regional Agricultural Research Station, Sher-E-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology-Kashmir, Leh (Ladakh). He joined as Lecturer-cum-Junior Pathologist (Wheat and Barley) in the Department of Mycology and Plant Pathology, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University in 2006.
Dr. Vaish is currently working as Associate Professor (Wheat and Barley Pathologist) in the same department. He has to his credit more than 36 research papers and reviews published in reputed national and international journals.
