We are pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of Achieving sustainable cultivation of wheat (vols I & II), edited by Professor Peter Langridge.
Achieving sustainable cultivation of wheat, Volume 1 - reviews advances in breeding techniques as well as their application to produce drought-resistant and other improved varieties. It also discusses wheat nutritional quality. Finally it reviews developments such as disease-resistant varieties and other techniques to combat pests and diseases.
Achieving sustainable cultivation of wheat, Volume 2 - discusses ways of improving cultivation from variety selection to post-harvest storage. It reviews trends in integrated crop management, sustainable intensification and organic cultivation before concluding by looking at ways of supporting smallholders in the developing world.
Both volumes will be a standard reference for cereal scientists in universities, government and other research centres and companies involved in wheat cultivation.
