In common with other titles in this series, this volume describes the scientific principles that are the bases of crop production practices. This volume focuses on the leafy salad vegetables: lettuce, endive and chicory. It opens with a review of world production data, crop uses, botany, taxonomy and evolution. It then describes the genetics and breeding of the crop, including cultivar development and germplasm resources. Physiological aspects, such as germination, growth and development, are then discussed. Production methods worldwide, including growing under cover in protected environments, are reviewed, before consideration of harvesting and seeds, pests and diseases, and economics and marketing. The book is written by one of the world’s leading authorities on the subject and will be indispensable for advanced students and growers in horticulture.

About the Author:

E. J. Ryder, US Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service, Salinas, California.

Review:


"The author's qualifications are his many years of active participation, approaching nearly a half-century, in an excellent and productive genetic research and plant breeding program for lettuce and other salad crops. He is widely recognized and highly regarded internationally and nationally, and is revered by all facets of the California and Arizona lettuce industries. The scope of the book is complete, beginning with an excellent introduction to the history, the current situation, and an insight for the future. Ryder provides a rich reservoir of information from a wide range of current referenced literature. The history of lettuce, endive and chicory breeding is well done. Benefits of this book are its clear, extensive, and knowledgeable presentation of relevant information. Furthermore, nothing in print is as current or has this level of detail. The book is too good to pass up." -- Vincent Rubatzky, HortScience, Vol 34(6) Oct 1999
