About this book

Azuki is one of the 12 most important grain legumes in the world, grown widely in the Far East and Southeast Asia. This comprehensive work on this crop draws extensively on the Chinese, Japanese and other East Asian literature. As a reference work, it should interest researchers working on grain legumes, as well as others in agronomy and science. The text covers: species origin, domestication and taxonomy; morphological and physiological characteristics; production; reproductive mechanisms, cytology and heritability; germplasm resources and new variety development; pests and diseases; uses, products and processing; and future development of the crop and its area of production.

Not only the botany, but also the nutritional content, related horticultural topics, how to process the bean, and its commercial uses are discussed. The text is well researched as is evident by the extensive reference listings at the end. --Society of Economic Botany Newsletter
