Crop Production Science in Horticulture #10: Carrots and Related Vegetable Umbelliferae Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This popular series for professional growers, students of horticulture and dedicated amateurs presents the scientific principles underlying the major horticultural crops. Of particular interest to growers throughout North America, this volume is devoted to the vegetable Umbelliferae--carrots, celery, fennel, parsley and parsnip. The book includes brief discussions of some lesser known vegetables, including coriander, chervil and skirret, and of related herbs, including dill, anise, caraway and cumin. Concise and practical, the book covers all aspects of the crops, from production statistics and botany to breeding, methods of production, pests and diseases, and postharvest handling.

Book News Annotation:

The authors, vegetable crop specialists at the U. of California-Davis and U. of Wisconsin-Madison, present background information relating to the history, descriptions, production, and uses of carrots, celery, and other vegetables within the family now known as Apiaceae. Topics are arranged into eight sections: the geographic origins and world importance of umbelliferous vegetables; botany and taxonomy; plant breeding and seed production; plant growth and development; crop production; diseases, disorders, and pests; harvest and handling; and umbellifer utilization and composition.
