Review:

"A few other books can be compared to Desai's Seeds Handbook, but none seems to provide broad information about seed science and technology. Considering its wide coverage, this book will be helpful to seed breeders and seed farmers. a good reference resource for agriculture students in general, and for seed technology scholars in particular. a useful addition for academic and public libraries." - E-Streams, Vol. 7, No. 12, December 2004 "recommended.offersuseful informationto practical questions within the broad area of seeds in a compact form."
