Proceedings of the Fourth National Symposium New Crops and New Uses:Biodiversity and Agricultural Sustainability

Perspectives on New Crops and New Uses, edited by ASHS Member Jules Janick, proposes solutions to worldwide concerns about the future of agriculture, including the ability to feed and sustain a doubling of world population in the next century; the increased risk, both biological and economic, faced by farmers today; and the problems concerning marketplace gluts and shortages.

The book, the fourth in a series, is based on the symposium entitled New Crops and New Uses: Biodiversity and Agricultural Sustainability, held 8-11 November 1998 in Phoenix, Ariz. The symposium was organized by the Association for the Advancement of Industrial Crops (AAIC), the Purdue University Center for New Crops and Plant Products, and the New Uses Council, Inc. It supplements three other proceedings: Progress in New Crops (1990, Timber Press, Portland, Ore.); New Crops (1993, Wiley Press, New York), and Advances in New Crops (1996, ASHS Press, Alexandria, Va.). These books represent an encyclopedia compendium of new crop information useful to growers, marketers, and researchers.
