Overview

Immunology in Plant Health and Its Impact on Food Safety examines cost-effective, simple, and sensitive immunological techniques to assess plant health and food safety for the production of desirable foods, feeds, and timbers. This book explores the structure and biochemical constituents of healthy plants and the abiotic and biotic stresses that can cause a marked reduction in quantity and quality of agricultural produce. Researchers, faculty members, and graduate scholars in plant pathology, microbiology, biochemistry, environmental sciences, and food technology will find this text useful for producing healthy plants while maintaining a pollution-free environment. In Immunology in Plant Health and Its Impact on Food Safety, methods to develop stress-resistant cultivars are discussed to enable you to select the most suitable strategies for maintaining production and quality without the use of chemicals. This valuable resource provides detailed instructions for employing immunoassays that are rapid, reproducible, and amenable for large-scale application in place of cumbersome and expensive methods currently in use. With this important tool, you will be able to plan and develop programs to obtain agricultural produce of high quality acceptable for human and animal consumption. With Immunology in Plant Health and Its Impact on Food Safety, you'll learn more about: agrosystems immunological reactions preparations of antisera immunodetection techniques plant-stress interactions genetic manipulations disease resistance and the production of disease-free plants mycotoxins chemical residues This essential guide provides you with access to a wide spectrum of information never before encompassed in a single book, saving you time and energy. Figures, photographs, and tables with appropriate data supply visual and factual support for the points discussed in the text. Immunology in Plant Health and Its Impact on Food Safety includes a lar
