About this item
This first of two volumes on the environmentally sustainable cultivation of soybeans, reviews the relevant research, focusing particularly on breeding and cultivation techniques. Researchers in various areas of crop, plant, and food sciences consider such topics as maintaining and utilizing the genetic diversity of soybeans, developments in marker-assisted breeding of soybeans, improving the drought and heat resistance of the soybean, modeling the effects of temperature and photo-period on soybean reproductive development, and sustainable soybean production research and practice: contrasting case studies from three soybean production areas. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)Volume 1 focuses on breeding and cultivation techniques. Part 1 starts by reviewing our understanding of soybean physiology and genetic diversity. It then discusses advances in conventional and marker-assisted breeding, as well as transgenic techniques, and their use to produce more stress-resistant varieties. Part 2 reviews key advances in cultivation techniques to make the most of these new varieties.With its distinguished editor and international team of authors, this will be a standard reference for soybean scientists, growers, government and non-government agencies supporting soybean cultivation.
