Successful seed supplies are vital in maintaining vegetable production and availability, and for ensuring food security for many subsistence farmers in developing countries. Providing a broad and expert coverage of the horticultural production of vegetables grown from seed, this fully updated new edition includes new coverage of the production of genetically modified crops, organic seed production, packaging, and honey bee population, as well as updated references and further reading. It is an essential text for horticulturists, researchers, seed scientists, vegetable producers, students, technicians and practitioners in vegetable seed production in both developed and developing countries.
"A considerable asset of this book is the large reference section, which has been supplemented by a 'Further Reading' list at the end of each chapter. The book remains a unique and valuable contribution to this important topic."Mike Day - Journal of Experimental Agriculture
