Most forage crops are grasses and legumes. As there are many species of these crop plants, it is characteristic that many kinds of diseases occur on them. We have researched the diseases of forage crops for many years in the plant disease laboratory of NGRI. Now, information and photographs of the symptoms and causal agents of forage crop diseases are available on the the internet.
When you retrieve from the list of plant names or pathogen names, you will find photographs and explanations of each disease. This time, we add the retrieving system on disease symptoms to the encyclopedia. (2001.5.1)
