Crop Improvement: Quality characters
For quantitative improvment of crop yield, it is important to understand the physiology and genetics of individual yield-contributing characters, as productive and climatically suitable land is fast decreasing due to various factors. Though quantitative increase in grain production is important for feeding the ever-increasing population, it is critically important that the grain produced is nutritive and healthy (free of, or with reduced, undesirable and/or toxic constituents. The information presented in this book covers recent research and is globally relevant. It is designed to cater to the needs of advanced students in crop physiology, crop genetics, crop breeding, agronomy and soil science, as well as nutritionists, progressive farmers, planners and crop managers.
