Barley Science: Recent Advances from Molecular Biology to Agronomy of Yield and Quality

Front Cover
Find up-to-date information on barley for malting, food, and animal feed!

This comprehensive book covers every aspect of barley from molecular biology to agronomy of yield and quality. In addition to the exposition of the basic concepts, Barley Science explains the latest developments in the field. In addition, this remarkable book presents ideas and techniques for bridging the gap between physiology and breeding.

Beginning with the history of this ancient cultivated grain, Barley Science presents state-of-the-art information on genetics and breeding, physiology, and agronomy. One chapter explains the CERES computer simulation of barley growth, development, and yield. Every chapter includes a thorough literature review, and you will find many helpful tables and figures.

Barley Science offers cutting-edge information on the latest developments in the field, including:
  • wild barley as a source of genes for crop improvement
  • genetics and breeding for specific attributes
  • genetic engineering
  • determining barley yield under stress
  • new breeding strategies for disease resistance
  • choosing genotype, sowing date, and plant density for malting barley
  • enhancing pre-harvest sprouting resistance
  • barley proteins and malting performance
Written by the top experts in the field, Barley Science is an excellent update and broadening of the information found in previous barley books. Agronomists, breeders, geneticists, and physiologists--and their students--will turn again and again to this essential resource.
