'Oil Crops of the World: their breeding and utilization', edited by Gerhard Robbelen, R Keith Downey, Amram Ashri, ISBN 0 07 0530815 McGraw-Hill Publishing Company 1221 Avenue of the Americas New York - NY 10020 - USA
Oil crops and their products are the second most valuable commodity in world trade today. With the rise in demand -and hence the increased value- of oil crop products, the scientific community has responded by directing a greater amount of research toward increasing production and improving the quality of traditional cultivars. 'Oil crops of the world: their breeding and utilisation' addresses this issue. Three agricultural scholars (Gerhard Robbelen, R Keith Downey, Amram Ashri) have gathered and interpreted thousands of articles and experiments to present an up-to-date reference work which covers research and scholarship on all cultivars, traditional and new, including soyabeans, coconut, olive trees, sunflower, jojoba, safflower, sesame, peanut, brassicas, poppy, cotton, maize, castor, palm and linseed. Much of the material has not been published before and therefore the book forms an important reference work for the study of international oil crops.
