Domestication of plants is done in order to increase yield, improve diseases resistance and drought tolerance, ease harvest and to improve the taste and nutritional value and many other characteristics. Centuries of careful selection and breeding have had enormous effects on the characteristics of crop plants. Plant breeders use greenhouses and other techniques to get as many as three generations of plants per year so that they can make improvements all the more quickly.;This book explores innovative methods for breeding new varieties of major crops with resistance to environmental stresses that limit crop production worldwide. It provides the basic principles and techniques of agricultural breeding and examine work that has been done in relation to improving resistance in specific important world food crops. The contents of the book will help scientists and academics to examine, modify and improve breeding and crop production programmes.;;Chapter 1: Habits of Crop Production; Chapter 2: Breeding and Seed Production; Chapter 3: Breeding for Growth and Yield; Chapter 4: Breeding for Stem Quality; Chapter 5: Breeding to Improve Quality; Chapter 6: Seed Production of Organic Vegetables; Chapter 7: Reproductive Plant Breeding; Chapter 8: Plant Pollination; Chapter 9: Genetic Engineering of Crops; Chapter 10: Hybrid Seed Production; Chapter 11: Cultivar Development; Chapter 12: Intercropping Production Practices; Chapter 13: Crop Breeding for Market Orientation.

Buchbeschreibung Springer, 2012. Hardcover. Buchzustand: gut. 2012. The rapid population growth and the increase in the per capita income, especially in the group of emerging countries referred to as BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) has created huge pressure for the expansion of the agricultural growing area and the crop yields to meet the rising demand. As a result, many areas that have been considered marginal for growing crops, due to their low fertility, drought, salinity, and many other abiotic stresses, have now been incorporated in the production system. Additionally, climate change has brought new challenges to agriculture to produce food, feed, fiber and biofuels. To cope with these new challenges, many plant breeding programs have reoriented their breeding scope to stress tolerance in the last years. The authors of this book have collected the most recent advances and discoveries applied to breeding for abiotic stresses in this book, starting with new physiological concepts and breeding methods, and moving on to discuss modern molecular biological approaches geared to the development of improved cultivars tolerant to most sorts of abiotic stress. Written in an easy to understand style, this book is an excellent reference work for students, scientists and farmers interested in learning how to breed for abiotic stresses scenarios, presenting the state-of-the-art in plant stresses and allowing the reader to develop a greater understanding of the basic mechanisms of tolerance to abiotic stresses and how to breed for them. Plant Breeding for Abiotic Stress Tolerance [Englisch] [Gebundene Ausgabe] Roberto Fritsche-Neto (Herausgeber), Aluízio Borém (Herausgeber) In englischer Sprache. 196 pages. 1,5 x 15,3 x 23 cm.
