Description

Quinoa is an ancient grain that has grown in popularity in recent years.

It has been known as a good source of both protein and fiber.

As the demand for quinoa increases a comprehensive and up-to-date reference on the biology and production of the crop is essential.

Quinoa: Improvement and Sustainable Production brings together authors from around the world to provide a complete assessment of the current state of global quinoa research and production. Topics covered include quinoa history and culture, genomics and breeding, agronomy, nutrition, marketing, and end-uses. The book focuses in particular on the emerging role of quinoa in providing increased food security to smallholder farmers and communities throughout the world.

Quinoa will interest quinoa researchers, producers, crop scientists, agronomists, and plant geneticists, as well as advanced students working with this important grain.
