Plant Quarantine deals with alien pests which could became serious threat to our agricultural, horticultural and forest plants.Brief introduction of alien pests such as bacteria, fungi, insects, nematodes, plant viruses, etc. is given in the preliminary chapters. Risk factors involved in these pests are analyzed. Various methods available to detect these pests from imported plants and plants material and their elimination procedures are discussed. The role of legislation containing the alien pests and efforts made by governments in implementing the legislative measures are described. The global approach to prevent the spread of pests across international borders and obligation of governments are brought out. The functioning of Plant Quarantine system in India and further strengthening the system are suggested. Whenever necessary, relevant illustration are provided. The, text, tables and illustrations could be a good reference sources not only for persons engaged in Plant Quarantine organizations but also for the users of plant quarantine services. This book could also be useful in organizing training programs and could serve as a teaching aid.

This Book was written to serve those interested in seed pathology. It is designed to serve as a textbook as well as a reference book for students, teachers, and researchers, and for seed health testing, seed production, and plant quarantine personnel. It is to be used as a guide to the literature. Much of the illustrative material has come from the authors' files used for teaching or from their own research. Teachers will want to supplement this book with examples from their own experience and research ot with information and data from other seed pathology programs. The authors hope that this book, in addition to being of value to seed and plant pathologists, will be useful to agriculturalists interested in crop production. It was written in part to stimulate research in seed pathology and its importance to the role of seedborne inoculum in the epidemiology and control of plant diseases.

This paper reviews the history of quarantine services, discusses principles for successful quarantine operations and identifies major constraints to the exchange of plant materials due to quarantine restrictions and procedures. It also explores some of the difficulties faced by quarantine services, plant breeders, and genebank curators in attempting to detect diseases or pests and clean up seeds and vegetative materials. The paper examines disease and pest screening techniques, with an emphasis on emerging biotechnologies that are revolutionizing diagnostic and clean up work for plant germplasm. It underscores the importance of intermediate quarantine, particularly for tropical cash crops. Finally, the paper analyzes ways to strengthen quarantine services worldwide so that crop improvement programs can operate more efficiently and effectively.
