  • Triticale improvement and production (English)

    Series: FAO Plant Production and Protection PapersTriticale, the first successful human-made cereal grain, was deliberately produced in 1875 by crossing wheat with rye. Since then, the evolution of this crop has been the topic of keen interest for many plant scientists. This book presents updated information on various aspects of triticale ...

  • Explore on-farm. On-farm trials for adapting and adopting good agricultural practices (En)

    Explore On-farm aims at improving sustainable production of rainfed wheat-based farming systems. It brings researchers, farmers and extension agents together, on-farm, to carry out guided and collaborative crop trials. The trials should lead to the identification and reduction of constraints to productivity and to the adaptation of general ...

  • Irrigated Wheat. Managing your crop (En)

    Series: Non-series TitlesWheat is one of the most important food sources in the developing world. Sustainable intensification of irrigated wheat requires an adequate and balanced use of inputs. This self-help publication aims to contribute to a rational use of inputs by pointing out the various things that can go wrong with wheat crops and also ...

  • Wheat Production in Stressed Environments

    The book comprises the proceedings of the 7th International Wheat Conference, held in Mar del Plata, Argentina, at the end of 2005. Leading scientists from all over the world, specialized in different areas that contribute to the better understanding of wheat production and use, reviewed the present achievements and discussed the future challenges ...

  • Prospects for Saline Agriculture

    Saline land is a resource capable of significant production. Recent advances in research in breeding for salt tolerance in wheat, biotechnology in rice, and selection and rehabilitation of salt-tolerant plants are of economic importance in arid/saline conditions.This book gives some practical approaches for saline agriculture and afforestation, ...

  • 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 ...

    Farmers, Gene Banks and Crop Breeding: Economic Analyses of Diversity in Wheat, Maize, and Rice responds to concerns about the loss of valuable genetic resources and crop vulnerability arising from widespread cultivation of genetically uniform varieties. It assembles a series of applied studies focusing on the fundamental economic issues ...

  • Outgrowing the Earth: The Food Security Challenge in an Age of Falling Water Tables and Rising Temperatures

    In recent months, rising oil prices have focused the world’s attention on the depletion of oil reserves. But the depletion of underground water resources from overpumping is a far more serious issue. Excessive pumping for irrigation to satisfy food needs today almost guarantees a decline in food production tomorrow.There are substitutes for ...
