Crop Yield: Physiology and Processes
Donald L. Smith, Chantal Hamel
Springer, 1999 - Technology & Engineering - 504 pages
This book summarizes recent research on the physiology of yield of all the world's major field crops. The authors focus on the development of crop yield, the physiology underlying this process and the interactions between this physiology and the environment in which the crops develop.
The need for the integration of the knowledge available for each of these crops has never been greater. In view of the increasing demand for food supplies of the world's growing population, the development and improvement of crop yield will play a crucial role in the future.
