"During recent decades, tremendous progress and innovations have been made in rice science with the goal of increasing production of rice to meet the world's growing demands. This new volume, Advances in Rice Science: Botany, Production, and Crop Improvement, provides a concise overview of rice, covering the background and importance of rice; origin, evolution, and domestication of rice; and the world rice production. It goes on to provide new and important recent research advances on many different aspects of rice science and production. The authors look at advances in rice ideotypes, abiotic stress management techniques, biotic stress affecting crop productivity, new methods and technology for cultivation, and new methods and techniques in rice grain quality analysis and processing. It also describes new rice varieties, new hybrid rice technology, and new breeding methods for rice. The overview presented here, along with the informative review of recent advances in rice cultivation, production, and science, makes this volume a comprehensive guide for rice scientists and researchers, agronomists, breeders, and faculty and students of agriculture."-- Provided by publisher.
