Vegetables Characteristics, Production, and Marketing by Lincoln C. Peirce

Vegetables Characteristics, Production, and Marketing


Vegetables Characteristics, Production, and Marketing by Lincoln C. Peirce

Describes the techniques and fundamental concepts underlying the production and marketing of vegetable crops, particularly those crops that contribute to the commercial vitality of the vegetable industry in the western hemisphere. Covers resources -- natural, biological and economic -- that are fundamental to successful crop production, as well as the vegetable management systems that integrate these resources. Also includes specific information on each of the major vegetable crops, such as history, botanical characteristics, production techniques, pests, harvesting, and marketing. In addition, it provides discussions of social conflicts and problems that arise from water and land use practices, pesticide application, and conservation.
