  • Sustainable Management of Water Resources in Agricultureby OECD Publishing

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2010; US$ 37.00

    Agriculture is the major user of water in most countries. It also faces the enormous challenge of producing almost 50% more food by 2030 and doubling production by 2050. This will likely need to be achieved with less water, mainly because of growing pressures from urbanisation, industrialisation and climate change. In this context, it will be important... more...

  • Urban Agricultureby Craig Pearson

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 47.95

    Most of us live in cities. These are becoming increasingly complex and removed from broad-scale agriculture. Yet within cities there are many examples of greenspaces and local food production that bring multiple benefits that often go unnoticed. This book presents a collection of the latest thinking on the multiple dimensions of sustainable greenspace... more...

  • Plant Breeding Reviewsby Jules Janick

  • Dictionary of Plant Breeding, Second Editionby Rolf H. J. Schlegel

    CRC Press 2009; US$ 125.95

    Arguably one of the oldest scientific traditions, plant breeding began in Neolithic times, with methods as simple as saving the seeds of desirable plants and sowing them later. It was not until the re-encounter with Mendel?s discoveries thousands of years later that the genetic basis of breeding was understood. Developments since then have provided... more...
