  • Ascochyta blights of grain legumes

    Ascochyta blights of grain legumes

    Ascochyta blights consistently affect large areas of grain legume production (pea, lentil, chickpea and faba bean) in all countries where they are cultivated. These diseases are capable of causing large yield losses under conducive environmental conditions. This book considers the state of the art by taking a comparative approach of Ascochyta blight diseases of cool season food and feed legumes. Topics considered are pathogen diversity, legume ...

  • Cereal Grain Quality

    Cereal Grain Quality

    The commercial value of cereals is dependent on how suitable the grain is for use in consumer products; this is in turn dependent on the functional and nutritional quality of the grain. Cereal Grain Quality brings together in one volume information on the biochemical constituents of the major cereal species, and how the composition of grain affects quality.

  • Drying and Storage Of Grains and Oilseeds

    Drying and Storage Of Grains and Oilseeds

    This text and reference discusses the drying of grains, in particular the staple cereals, maize, rice, and wheat, and the oilseeds, soybeans and canola. The basic physical and thermodynamic properties of grain and air are examined, and the theory of the drying process is developed. Design of the optimum operating conditions for on-farm and off-farm dryers are presented. The book is written as an engineering text, but should also prove ...

  • The Iceberg in the Mist: Northern Research in pursuit of a "Little Ice Age"

    The Iceberg in the Mist: Northern Research in pursuit of a "Little Ice Age"

    The term 'Little Ice Age' was originally used by glaciologists to describe the most recent major glacial advance of the Holocene. Subsequently, the 'Little Ice Age' has come to be associated with a period of advances of European glaciers between about 1450 to 1850, as well as with relatively cooler temperatures. The issue of whether or not this concept remains accurate is a major theme of many of the papers included in this volume. The ...
