About this book

Vegetable Brassica crops offer mankind the greatest diversity of useful products provided by any single plant genus. They deliver leaves, flowers, stems and roots used in both fresh and processed forms. Using a new approach, this book is the first to cover the subject of horticultural brassicas. It discusses and analyses the flexibility and diversity in European brassicas (Brassica oleracea) and Oriental brassicas (B. rapa) and associated species, and examines various themes such as plant breeding, the potential for genetic manipulation, crop agronomy and the contributions to human health and welfare.

Like others within this series, this book identifies the scientific principles underpinning crop production and provides information on commercial issues related to it.
