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)
