9780851992419: Seed Biology and the Yield of Grain Crops

Understanding the factors affecting crop yields is crucial in our efforts to provide food for the growing human population. This book examines grain crop yields from a new and unique perspective, by concentrating on the influence of seed growth and its regulation. It examines all aspects of seed growth and development, including environmental and genetic effects on growth rate and length of filling period. It discusses the effect of the seed on the two main yield components, individual seed weight and number of seeds per unit area, and evaluates the concepts and models developed in terms of crop management.

Review:


"Egli (agronomy, U. of Kentucky) provides information about the growth and development of seeds, including the processes involved, the regulation of these processes, and the effect of plant and environmental factors. He then discusses the role of the seed in regulating the two main components of yield, individual seed weight and number of seeds per unit area. Models developed are evaluated in terms of crop management issues."--SciTech Book News
