Barley Farming Books

  • Genetics and Improvement of Barley Malt Quality

    Genetics and Improvement of Barley Malt Quality presents up-to-date developments in barley production and breeding. The book is divided into nine chapters, including barley production and consumption, germplasm and utilization, chemical composition, protein and protein components, carbohydrates and sugars, starch degrading enzymes, endosperm cell ...

  • A Guide to Identifying and Managing Nutrient Deficiencies in Cereal Crops

    This new booklet has been developed by the IPNI South Asia Program in cooperation with the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT). It is a 50-page field guide (8 1/2 x 11 in. size, wire-o bound) designed to describe the underlying causes of nutrient deficiencies in maize, wheat, rice, sorghum, pearl millet, and barley, with tips ...

  • Hybrid Cultivar Development

    Heterosis breeding based on male sterility has become established in many field crops and has been credited with high productivity. This book presents an update on the advent and promise of hybrids with comprehensive coverage of theoretical and applied aspects of heterosis breeding. Its principal elements are the hybrid advantage, pollination ...

  • Cryopreservation of Plant Germplasm II

    This volume highlights achievements in cryopreservation, chronicles method development, and describes relevant literature. The provided detailed information helps practitioners develop and improve methods for desired species. The volume is divided into four parts:I. Cryopreservation of Germplasm;II. Herbaceous Plants: Barley, celery, chamomile, ...

  • Transgenic Crops IV

    Genetic engineering is a powerful tool for crop improvement. Crop biotechnology before 2001 was reviewed in Transgenic Crops I-III, but recent advances in plant cell and molecular biology have prompted the need for new volumes.Transgenic Crops IV deals with cereals, vegetables, root crops, herbs and spices. Section I is an introductory chapter on ...

  • Genetics and Genomics of the Triticeae

    Sequencing of the model plant genomes such as those of A. thaliana and rice has revolutionized our understanding of plant biology but it has yet to translate into the improvement of major crop species such as maize, wheat, or barley. Moreover, the comparative genomic studies in cereals that have been performed in the past decade have revealed the ...

  • Crop Nutrient Deficiency Image Collection

    This collection provides a comprehensive assortment of hundreds of classic cases of crop nutrient deficiency documented from research plots and farm fields located around the world. IPNI would like to thank our contributors; many are agricultural researchers, extension staff, crop scouts, and farmers. You’ll find 600 images intuitively ...

  • 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 ...

  • Cereals and Millets

    Genome Mapping and Molecular Breeding in Plants presents the current status of the elucidation and improvement of plant genomes of economic interest. The focus is on genetic and physical mapping, positioning, cloning, monitoring of desirable genes by molecular breeding and the most recent advances in genomics. The series comprises seven volumes: ...

  • Haploids in Crop Improvement I

    The incorporation of haploids in breeding programs is one of the latest techniques used for crop improvement. The present volume comprises 30 chapters by international experts and informs on the methods involved, such as in vitro production of haploids by culture of anthers, studies of pollen embryogenesis, genetic analysis of haploids. It also ...

  • Allelopathy in Sustainable Agriculture and Forestry

    Simply put, allelopathy refers to an ecological phenomenon of plant-plant interference through release of organic chemicals (allelochemicals) in the environment. These chemicals can be directly and continuously released by the donor plants in their immediate environment as volatiles in the air or root exudates in soil or they can be the microbial ...
