Overview

Barley is one of the world's most important crops with uses ranging from food and feed production, malting and brewing to its use as a model organism in molecular research. The demand and uses of barley continue to grow and there is a need for an up-to-date comprehensive reference that looks at all aspects of the barley crop from taxonomy and morphology through to end use. Barley will fill this increasing void.

Barley is divided into 5 sections that begin with a broad introduction to barley, then look at the evolution of the barley plant, genetics and breeding, production management, and composition and uses of the grain. Each chapter will be written by a leading international barely researcher, and provide thorough, up-to-date information on current barley research. Barley will stand as a must have reference for anyone researching, growing, or utilizing this important crop.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Overall, therefore, the book is not without flaws, but it remains a comprehensive source of information and a valuable addition to the literature on a hugely important crop species." (The Journal of Language in Society, 2011)

"The book is aimed at an academic rather than a general readership and should achieve wide approval amongst barley scientists, although familiarity with techniques and terminology may be necessary for some specialist areas." (Experimental Agriculture, 2011)
