The monograph traces the course of research on mango malformation since its first report to date, analyzes the controversies that it evoked and records the current status of different aspects of the problem. It also provides software on expert system for forecasting and management of the disease. Thus, it is a saga of the last century’s most controversial and destructive plant disease of international significance. The author, Dr Dilip Kumar Chakrabarti, worked on this problem for his Ph. D programme and continued to pursue the problem during his tenure of over 25 years at the Narendra Dev University of Agriculture & Technology, at Kumargunj, Uttar Pradesh in India, located in an area where mango is grown extensively, dwelling on all aspects of the problem and has now developed a software package that helps greatly in understanding and managing the problem to tolerable limits.
