By using resources more efficiently, precision agriculture can make farming more productive and sustainable. This collection reviews current research on key technologies in precision agriculture and its applications.
Diseases remain a serious problem in cereal cultivation. The first parts of the book review current research on fungal diseases of cereals and the challenge of fungicide resistance. The book then discusses breeding resistant varieties and methods for integrated disease management of cereals.
The volume reviews current production around the world and how developments in cultivation practice can be used to improve yields sustainably.
This volume reviews how research is addressing challenges in cocoa cultivation, covering areas such as breeding and agronomy, understanding and managing the range of diseases affecting cocoa, as well as ways of measuring and improving sustainability.
This volume looks at key research on improving cultivation techniques in potato production. Part 1 ranges from modelling growth to nutrient and irrigation management as well as post-harvest storage. Part 2 looks at advances in understanding and managing diseases as well as the management of insect and nematode pests.
With growing concern that both intensive agriculture in the developed world and rapid expansion of agriculture in the developing world is damaging soil health. This new volume reviews advances in our understanding of soil structure and dynamics providing the foundation for effective soil management.
