Description

First published 1983. Aimed at improving agricultural production by providing a better under· standing of the interaction between crops and the environment, this book presents the latest research findings on the effects of water and temperature stresses on plants in humid temperate regions. It also covers management practices and breeding programs that may reduce crop sensitivity to the vagaries of weather.
