Identifying key pests and diseases of Asian vegetables
The popularity of Asian vegetables has increased in recent years among consumers with a range of uses, including salad and baby leaf mixes. With increased demand has come the need to manage losses caused by pests and disease. Critical to the successful management of pests and diseases in any vegetable crop, is an understanding of the main pests and diseases known to affect each crop. By better understanding the impact of pest and diseases on Asian vegetable crops, and how integrated pest management (IPM) strategies can assist in improved control of these problems, growers can benefit from the increasing demand for “clean and green” Asian vegetables.
