Wheat
Ecology and Physiology of Yield Determination
edited by Emilio H. Satorre

Discussing aspects of wheat growth for specific regions around the world, Wheat provides you with information that will improve the size and quality of your crops.

You'll also receive information on the genetic gains in wheat research that are improving the physiological traits and numerical components of this essential grain.

Within Wheat, you'll find data and methods from international experts in the field that will improve the yield and growth of the world's most important crop.
