From the Publisher"Physiology of Crop Yield would be useful to any scientistwho works to integrate and better understand growth, developmentand yield from a perspective of whole plant physiology.
This is a much needed and timely publication."
P.V. Vara Prasad, Kansas State University
"Hay and Porter have produced an excellent book, well-suited forundergraduate teaching and for those seeking an overview ofprocesses contributing to crop yield. They even tell us how longthe sun needs to shine to deliver a bowl of breakfastcereal."
Tim Wheeler, University of Reading
"Although described as the second edition of An Introductionto the Physiology of Crop Yield, which was authored by R. Hayand A. J. Walker (1989). The Physiology of Crop Yield iscompletely rewritten and focuses more explicitly on quantitativeprediction of Crop growth. The Physiology of Crop Yieldcontains numerous line drawings and tables, as well as 30 pages ofreference. The overall layout and design of text, tables, andfigures follows that of traditional textbooks...the text seems wellsuited for an upper-level undergraduate course with a pre-requisiteof plant physiology."
Jeffrey W. White reproduced from Crop Science
"This book extensively covers the theoretical aspects of cropphysiological processes...It is useful for understanding andinterpreting agronomic phenomena and therfore clearly has aconsiderable value to advanced students, teachers and scientists inthe field of agronomy, crop management and even plant breeding. Thearray of literature cited is broad and also up-to-date. The Orderof presentation is logical and comprehensive overviews aregiven...it remains an excellent reference that should berecommended for any teaching of crop phsiology at the graduatelevel."
