Authors: M.K. Razdan and Autar K. Mattoo
Publishing: Science Publisher Inc
Published: May 2005
Potato is the most significant non-cereal crop. Much attention has been paid to this commercially important crop. The aim of this volume is to capture the recent advances made in improving potatoes using traditional breeding methods as well as genetic engineering technology. The book provides a critical appraisal of the state-of-the-art finding on this crop. Useful to potato breeders and specialists, besides teachers and students. Contents: . Conservation of Potato Genetic Resources: J. Bamberg and A. del Rio . On-Farm Profitability and Prospects for True Potato Seed (TPS): A. Chilver et al. . Propagation by Traditional Breeding Method: George R. McKay . Breeding Potential and Transmission of Traits in 4x-2x Crosses: Kazuo N. Watanabe et al. .
