About this book

Fruit and nuts are an important group of horticultural crops, which have attracted recent attention for the health benefits they afford consumers.

This book covers the fruit and nut crops of temperate and sub-tropical regions; important regions of world production where both types of crop overlap, including California, southern Europe and Australia. The book integrates knowledge of the general requirements of these types of crops, their botanical characteristics and unique requirements. Important attention is given to genetic improvement, production systems, soil and water management, plant and fruit biology, crop protection and post harvest issues. Discussion of sustainable production and utilization of these crops gives an important insight into challenges that will face future researchers and producers.
