About this book


Plant Production on the Threshold of a New Century describes and compares problems and frontier developments in the different sectors of plant production, integrating developments in basic plant sciences, crop science and socioeconomic science, leading to sustainable plant production. Hence the book formulates goals and constraints in policy, economy, production, environment and land use; indicates how these goals and constraints may be translated into farming styles and cropping systems; and describes how the fundamental plant sciences can contribute to the implementation of such farming styles and cropping systems.
