Description

"Attention should be directed to the continual spread of a common disease of plants generally known under the names of root-knot, root-gall, big-root, etc. It occurs as an out-of-doors pest in all except the most northern Sates, but it is most abundant in the South and Southwest and is everywhere prevalent in greenhouses. It is the cause of serious damage to many crops. The extent of this damage is difficult to estimate, since it is both direct and indirect and in many cases is overlooked entirely. The direct damage is that caused to the growing crops. The indirect damage results from the fact that the presence of the disease makes it impracticable to grow certain crops." -- title page
