An introduction to the physiology of crop yield
Longman Scientific & Technical, Jun 20, 1989 - Technology & Engineering - 292 pages
Reviews and analyzes recent advances in in our knowledge of the functioning of crop plants in the field. Emphasis is on north-temperate cropping (although examples are included from other regions), material being drawn from both the laboratory and the field. Also covered are crop simulation and interactions between plant disease and plant physiology, with thoughtful discussion of the complexity of crop/environment/management relationships.
