Barley: Production, Improvement, and Uses (0470958626) cover image
Barley is one of the world's most important crops with uses ranging from food and feed production, malting and brewing to its use as a model organism in molecular research. The demand and uses of barley continue to grow and there is a need for an up-to-date comprehensive reference that looks at all aspects of the barley crop from taxonomy and morphology through to end use. Barley will fill this increasing void. Barley will stand as a must have reference for anyone researching, growing, or utilizing this important crop.

"Overall, therefore, the book is not without flaws, but it remains a comprehensive source of information and a valuable addition to the literature on a hugely important crop species." (The Journal of Language in Society, 2011)

"The book is aimed at an academic rather than a general readership and should achieve wide approval amongst barley scientists, although familiarity with techniques and terminology may be necessary for some specialist areas." (Experimental Agriculture, 2011)
