Crop Science and Technology for Food Security, Bioenergy and Sustainability by R K Behl, W Merbach, L Bona, J Pauk And A Veha
Book Summary:

Crop improvement programmes are no longer in the domain of traditional art of selecting elite lines from populations. Plant breeding and biotechnological tools are useful for creating novel genetic variation in field crops to enhance economic yield, produce quality, input use efficiency and tolerance to abiotic and biotic stresses etc. Precise assessment of genetic variability for potential traits using morphological, physiological, biochemical and molecular indices should often precede actual crop improvement pursuits to enhance the efficiency of selection and to develop crop genotypes for the target ecological environments.

Audience of the Book :
This book Useful for Agronomy, Renewable Energy.
