Description Broadening the Genetic Base of Grain Legumes de Mohar Singh:

Grain legumes play significant and diverse role in the farming systems and provide nutrition security to the largely vegetarian and relatively poorer people around the world. These are ideal crops for achieving three simultaneous developmental goals viz. reducing poverty, improving human health and nutrition and enhancing ecosystem resilience. Globally, grain legumes are the second most important crop group next only to cereals but a large proportion of area of it is under rainfed-low input systems as compared to cereals contributing to lower yields. The other important factor responsible for reduced yield in grain legumes is the narrow genetic base of the present day pulse varieties. In order to break the yield barriers of these cultivars, new sources of genes/ alleles need to be identified and suitably incorporated into the adapted background. The information on various aspects of grain legume improvement although has been considerable in the recent past, these information are highly scattered and not available at one place. The present book consists of comprehensive and latest crop-wise information on important grain legumes of the world including their distribution, gene pool, systematics, status of genetic and genomic resources, production constraints, traits of importance, crop improvement methodologies - both conventional as well as contemporary and future strategies to be adopted for comprehensive grain legume improvement in various agro-ecological target areas of the globe. The chapters have been contributed by eminent crop experts from across the world engaged in research in their respective crops for the past several years thus providing a rare insight into the crop specific constraints and prospects drawing from their rich overall experience. The book therefore will be a useful source of information to the grain legume researchers, students, policy planners and developmental experts alike. Dr. Mohar Singh is presently working as a Senior Scientist (Plant Breeding) at the National Bureau of Plant Genetic Resources Pusa, New Delhi India. Dr Singh obtained his Doctoral degree in Plant Breeding from the Himachal Pradesh Agricultural University, Palampur, India in 2001. He has been working on genetic and genomic resources of pulses for the last 12 years. Presently, he is working on pre-breeding and genetic enhancement for breaking yield barriers in lentil and chickpea. He has identified several useful gene sources for various trait of interest in wild Cicer and Lens species and some of them have been introgressed into the cultivated background for widening the gene pool. Dr Singh has published more than 50 research papers in the journals of national and international repute like Plant Breeding, Crop Science, PLoS ONE, DNA Research, Journal of Agricultural Science, Journal of Genetics and Breeding, Genetic Resources and Crop Evolution, Plant Genetic Resources: Characterization and Utilization and Adv Hort Science and also authored two text books and one edited published by Elsevier Insights. Dr. Ishwari Singh Bisht is working as a Principal Scientist at the National Bureau of Plant Genetic Resources (ICAR), Pusa Campus, New Delhi. As Professor of Plant Genetic Resources (PGR) discipline of Postgraduate School, Indian Agricultural Research Institute (a deemed university), he also coordinates the postgraduate teaching

This is probably one of the best books I have ever read.

This is probably one of the best books I right? sometimes.
