Crop Physiology Case Histories of Major Crops uniquely presents the challenges and potential solutions for environmentally sound crop production using a crop-focused approach. This standardized approach allows not only crop-specific expertise but also facilitates cross-crop comparisons for potential application and future research. The evolving challenges of increasing demand for crop production, whether for food, fodder, fiber or energy require careful consideration of resource use. As water scarcity, land-use concerns, and the social aspects of sustainability factor increasingly in decision-making, understanding the power of crop physiology in contributing to agricultural production continues to be of major importance.
With contributions from leading scientists from around the world, this book will assist in improved crop health and yield.
- Provides a crop-based approach that emphasizes both genetics and the environment
- Includes in-depth studies of 20 major crops by global experts
- Accommodates translational insights through a standardized approach to each crop

Victor Sadras is a crop ecophysiologist with interest in the adaptation of crops to environmental stresses, including water deficit, extreme temperatures, nutrient deficit, soil physical and chemical constraints, pathogens and insects. He has measured and modelled aspects of the water, carbon and nitrogen economies of annual (wheat, field pea, chickpea, sunflower, maize, soybean, cotton) and perennial crops (grapevine, olive) in rain-fed and irrigated systems.
