  • 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 ...

  • Micropropagation of Woody Plants

    This volume covers recent advances in the vegetative propagation of woody plants by tissue culture. A wide range of topics relevant to micropropagation of woody plants are discussed by renowned international scientists. These include cellular contro of morphogenesis, light regimes in tissue culture, maturation and rejuvenation, synthetic ...

  • Somatic Hybridization in Crop Improvement II

    Somatic hybrids through the fusion of plant protoplasts have widened the genetic variability of cultivated plants. As 'Somatic Hybridization in Crop Improvement I', published in 1994, this volume describes how this discipline can contribute to the improvement of crops. It comprises 24 chapters dealing with interspecific and intergeneric somatic ...
