The second edition of The wheat book: principles and practice had a number of changes from the first version, including information on weed management, grain quality, marketing, and other wheats. There was also a change in the emphasis of the book from 'a technical manual for wheat producers' to 'principles and practice' of wheat production to accomodate the wide user base.
Topics covered include:
- The structure and development of the cereal plant
- Crop water use
- Wheat in farming systems
- Crop management
- Weeds, diseases and pests
- Markets and marketing
Now out of print, electronic copies of this book can be obtained via the Research Library.
