Description

Phenotyping Crop Plants for Physiological and Biochemical Traits presents a proven range of methodologies and practices for effective, efficient, and appropriate typing of crop plants. By addressing the basic principles and precautions needed when conducting crop-based experiments, this book guides the reader in selecting the appropriate method based on the growing environment, whether greenhouse, pot, field, or liquid (hydroponic). By addressing the quantification of seed traits related to growth experiments, including their viability and vigor, this book presents methodology options for optimum yield based on potential abiotic stresses.

Key Features

  • Discusses various methods that can contribute to phenotyping of crop plants for various physiological and biochemical traits
  • Presents reliable techniques for phenotyping or quantifying plant characters during varied climatic conditions
  • Provides insights for selecting appropriate methodologies for specific crop growing situations
  • Identifies the most appropriate protocols and methods for analyzing crop traits

Readership

Researchers and students of Agriculture, Horticulture, sericulture and Forestry sciences, as well as conventional and molecular biologists involved in crop research
