  • Genetic Modification of Plantsby Frank Kempken; Christian Jung

    Springer 2009; US$ 519.00

    Conceived with the aim of sorting fact from fiction over genetically modified (GM) crops, this book brings together the knowledge of 30 specialists in the field of transgenic plants. It covers the generation and detection of these plants as well as the genetic traits conferred on transgenic plants. In addition, the book looks at a wide variety of crops,... more...

  • Genetic Resources, Chromosome Engineering, and Crop Improvement:by Ram J. Singh

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 164.95

    In recent decades, livestock producers have moved away from open grazing for a number of reasons, none having to do with the health of consumers. Genetic Resources, Chromosome Engineering, and Crop Improvement: Forage Crops demonstrates how state-of-the-art technology can encourage the raising of livestock in open pastures where they can be fed... more...

  • Biotechnology and Its Applications in Agricultural Scienceby P.B. Bansal

    GeneTech Books 2006; US$ 50.00

    The recent development in biotechnology have led to rapid progress in understanding the genetic basis of living organisms, and the ability to develop products and processes useful to human and animal health, food and agriculture, and industry. In agriculture, there is increasing use of biotechnology for genetic mapping and marker-assisted selection... more...

  • Assessment of Improved Crop Production Technologiesby Ajoy Gangopadhyay

    GeneTech Books 2007; US$ 50.00

    Low agricultural productivity in developing countries is a common feature. One of the reason is non-adoption of improved and recommended technologies. Crop production technologies are there but their adoption is low. Increase in the productivity has always remained a concern of scientists. Many technologies have developed by the researchers to improve... more...

  • Biotechnology for Agricultural Breedingby S.K. Mangal

    GeneTech Books 2007; US$ 50.00

    Agricultural biotechnology is an advanced technology that allows plant breeders to make precise genetic changes to impart beneficial traits to the crop plants we rely on for food and fibre. Depending on which genes are transferred, agricultural biotechnology can protect crops from diseases, increase their yield, improve their nutritional content, or... more...
