  • Postharvest Biology and Technology of Horticultural Crops-Principles and Practices for Quality Maintenance

    The ultimate goal of crop production is to provide quality produce to the consumers at reasonable rates. Most fresh produce is highly perishable, and postharvest losses are significant under the present methods of management in many countries. However, significant achievements have been made during the last few years to curtail postharvest losses ...

  • Silage Science and Technology

    No other silage book can compare with this detailed coverage, including in-depth discussions of silage microbiology, biochemistry, assessing quality, preharvest and postharvest factors, use of additives, harvesting, storage, feeding, whole-farm management, as well as a global scope. Individual chapters are devoted to the production, preservation, ...

  • Cryopreservation of Plant Germplasm I

    Whole plants have been regenerated from isolated protoplasts, cells, tissues, and organs freeze-preserved in liquid nitrogen. Thus cryopreservation has proved to be an important tool for the storage and conservation of plant genetic resources. Numerous experts have contributed to this volume, which is divided into the following sections: General ...

  • Epidemiology of Mycotoxin Producing Fungi

    The accumulation of mycotoxins in plants and plant products represents a major threat to human health. Toxins accumulate in plants following infection by species of Fusarium, Aspergillus and Penicillium. It has been estimated that one quarter of the world's food crops, including many basic foods, are affected by mycotoxin-producing fungi. The ...

These reviews summarize a variety of plant species and include both laboratory and field observations.Topics covered in this ...

  • Plant Genetic Conservation

    We live in critical times for the world's diversity of plants and animals. It is universally agreed that a catastrophic loss of biological diversity is occurring at the moment, with species, and equally importantly, genes being lost forever. However, the signing of the Biodiversity Convention at the Earth Summit in 1992 drew attention to the ...

  • Mitigating Climate Change Through Food and Land Use

    SummaryLand makes up a quarter of Earth’s surface, and its soil and plants hold three times as much carbon as the atmosphere. More than 30 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions arise from the land use sector. Thus, no strategy for mitigating global climate change can be complete or successful without reducing emissions from agriculture, ...
