About this book

Considering more than 30 disregarded, neglected, and new crops, Organic Production and Use of Alternative Crops explores their production in environmental-friendly cropping systems. It includes alternative cereals such as spelt and triticale; pseudocereals such as buckwheat and millet; oil plants such as pumpkin and white mustard; and root, tuber, and fiber plants such as sweet potato and flax. It also looks at industrial plants in organic farming including soya and hemp. Extensive plant descriptions emphasize nutritional value and offer information on plant history, botany, climate considerations, and yields. In some cases, the authors discuss traditional and new methods of food preparation.
