From the Preface:

It has been written to aid all those who deal with barley production problems, including barley growers, county extension agents, malting and brewing company field personnel, and hail insurance adjusters, as well as agronomists and plant pathologists. A great number of illustrations accompany the text, and a glossary, index, and selected references are also included. In the second edition, special attention has been given to presenting descriptions of reported diseases, updating the descriptions of symptoms and pathogens, adding citations of literature published since the first edition was issued, bringing disease and pathogen nomenclature up to date, and improving and supplementing the illustrations. Approximately 70% of the color photographs presented here were not previously published in the first edition.


This edition, like the first, has benefited from the input of numerous scientists. Each section was reviewed by an expert in the field, and the text was written or rewritten to bring the information to our current state of knowledge. Over 26 scientists contributed in one way or another to this edition.
