Plant Breeding: The Arnel R. Hallauer International Symposium
Kendall Lamkey and Arnel R. Hallauer
Plant breeding practices have improved the livelihoods of millions. Current breeding practices have
allowed farmers to produce enough crops to feed growing populations, added significant profits in the
grain trade, and minimized the amount of land needed for agricultural production by permitting more intensive
use of existing crop lands. This volume reviews the status of the major challenges, approaches, and
accomplishments of plant breeding programs from around the world.
Hardback 392 pp., 149 illus. ISBN 9780813828244
This volume originated from the Arnel R. Hallauer International Symposium held in Mexico City in
2003, and represents contributions from an international field of leading plant breeding researchers.
The coverage is broad and comprehensive and provides the latest developments affecting grains, trees, fruits, nuts,
and forage crops.
Plant Breeding: The Arnel R. Hallauer International Symposium is an essential resource for
agronomists, horticulturists, and plant biologists.
