Dibble sticks, donkeys and diesels: machines in crop production by Joseph K Campbell 1990, 329pp ISBN 971 104 185 5 IRRI PO Box 933 Manila PHILIPPINES
Wheat genetic resources: meeting diverse needs is a hardback book based on papers presented at an international symposium held in 1989 at the International Centre for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA). The book is intended to stimulate discussion on the handling of germplasm in order to improve wheat, and stabilize crop production, in the face of biotic and abiotic stresses in dry areas. These stresses include drought, temperature extremes, salinity, infertile soils, disease and pests. The work of the contributors, who are germplasm collectors, plant breeders and scientists from other related disciplines, is seen as an important component of the effort to improve the welfare of farmers in dry areas.
