Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The revised and expanded edition synthesizes the latest research in multiple aspects of crop production and adds a chapter on nutrient management in degraded soils. Coverage includes an international perspective on socioeconomic variables that influence crop production; plant growth determinants (genetic, physiological, agronomic and climatic); soil nutritional analysis and amendments for specific crops; and models for improved management (conservation, reclamation). Notes that despite dramatic field crop production gains in the past 20 years, average yields still are below their potential. Numerous tables and illustrations complement the text, which is intended as a textbook for students and a reference for researchers and extension personnel involved in soil and crop yield optimization. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Emphasizing soil as the substrate for plant growth, this volume examines climate-soil-plant relationships governing growth and mineral nutrition of most vital temperate and tropical field crops around the world, including cereal, legume, and pasture crops. Covers recent studies of genetic, physiological, and agronomic bases of crop growth, nutrient uptake, and use efficiency. Also discusses plant and soil processes and socioeconomic factors that constrain or enhance crop production. Looks at conservation tillage and organic farming useful for Low Input System Agriculture and similar systems. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
