Cultivation of grain crops has been rightly recognized as one of the main drivers in shaping human civilizations. Considering their key role in fulfilling a major portion of the global food needs, grain crops are the most widely grown crops around the world.

Unfortunately, like many other agronomic crops, grain crops are quite vulnerable to climate change and this has posed multifaceted Author: Farooq Shah, Zafar Khan, Amjad Iqbal, Metin Turan, Murat Olgun.

"Grain by Grain is a book for our times, On the one hand, chemically dependent monocultures of crops like corn and soy and wheat are still heavily subsidized by federal farm programs—and they benefit from historical subsidies too, including decades of publicly funded research and development.

But there’s another, invisible subsidy. The main focus of the book is the US. But for our many Seedling readers this will be an important reference as it is the same US endorsement of GM products that is being used for the continuing planting of GM crops around the world.

ISBNYield of grain crops is determined by their assimilatory processes such as photosynthesis and the biosynthetic processes in the seed, which are partly regulated within the seed itself. Providing a timely update in this field and highlighting the impact of the seed on grain crop yields, this book:Cited by: Genomes of other grain crops edited through this technique include maize, sorghum, barley, etc.

This indicates the high utility of this technique for gene editing in grain crops. Here we emphasize on CRISPR/Cas9-mediated gene editing in rice, wheat, and by: 1. Description: Bookseller Inventory # DADAX About this title: Synopsis: Understanding the factors affecting crop yields is crucial in our efforts to provide food for the growing human population.

This book examines grain crop yields from a new and unique perspective, by concentrating on the influence of seed growth and its Edition: First.

Fungi are a major cause of spoilage in stored grain. The Food and Agriculture Association estimates that 25% of the worlds food crops are affected by mycotoxins (the by-products of fungal growth) during growth and storage.

The damage of fungi is second only to that caused by insects in stored grain Size: KB. This series originated during a visit of prof. Mukerji to the Plant Protection Institute of CNR at Bari, Italy, in November Both editors agreed to produce a series of five volumes focusing, in a multi-disciplinary approach, on recent advances and achievements in the practice of crop protection.

In her book The Resilient Gardener, homesteader and seed breeder Carol Deppe provides in-depth information about staple crops, and names potatoes, corn, beans, squash and eggs as the “five crops. Abstract: Wheat is an annual grass belonging to the Poaceae (Gramineae) family, and represents one of the world’s most important field crops.

In contrast to the other cereal grains, wheat possess the unique gluten proteins capable of forming the fully visco-elastic dough required to produce pasta, noodles and leavened baked products, especially bread. A cereal is any grass cultivated (grown) for the edible components of its grain (botanically, a type of fruit called a caryopsis), composed of the endosperm, germ, and term may also refer to the resulting grain itself (specifically "cereal grain").Cereal grain crops are grown in greater quantities and provide more food energy worldwide than any other type of crop and are therefore.

Africa has more native cereals than any other continent. It has its own species of rice, as well as finger millet, fonio, pearl millet, sorghum, tef, guinea millet, and several dozen wild cereals whose grains are eaten from time to time. This is a food heritage that has fed people for generation.

I have only two qualms with this description. First, the book is more like pages; the rest is just endnotes. Second, “fascist” isn’t quite the right aspersion to use here. Against The Grain should be read as a prequel to Scott’s most famous work, Seeing Like A State. SLaS argued that much of what we think of as “progress.
