    Marker-assisted selection. Current status and future perspectives in crops, livestock, forestry and fish (En)

    In the light of continuing research and technology development, the process of producing improved varieties, clones, breeds and stains of agriculturally important species is continuously becoming more accurate, reliable and efficient. Today, molecular marker-assisted selection (MAS) is the core technology involved for increasing the rate of genetic gain in crops, livestock, forestry and farmed fish.This book, through a multidisciplinary

    Tropical crop-livestock systems in conservation agriculture. The Brazilian experience (En)

    Series: Integrated Crop ManagementThis publication describes how pasture, fodder and livestock production have been integrated into conservation agriculture systems in Brazil's tropical zones. Vast areas of forest have been cleared in the tropical areas of Brazil for establishment of pastures that become unproductive once the native fertility of the soil is exhausted; this leads to yet more forest clearing. Integrated crop-livestock zer

Yet in many countries, this kind of intuitive experimentation remains untapped, and farmers receive scant credit for their contributions. This handbook is a training tool written and presented in a practical, hands-on style, the manual aims to show how stimulating and ...
