What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“This book provides an excellent resource since it brings together leading experts in both the development and application of new technologies. It provides the reader with an authoritative explanation of the technologies and a critical assessment of their implementation in cereal improvement.”
Professor Peter Langridge, University of Adelaide, Australia; Chair of the Scientific Board of the Wheat Initiative
