British Field Crops Second Edition
Availability: - Currently unavailable.New edition is underway, expected June 2017
Agricultural Botanist and Journalist Dr Sally Francis has completely updated and expanded her popular title 'British Field Crops', which was first published in 2005. The second edition is 50% longer than the original book, and contains information on 30 extra crop species. 'British Field Crops' is a unique field guide to crops, as well as containing comprehensive information on their history and uses. It covers the established 'broad-acre' crops like wheat and barley, new 'alternative' crops like miscanthus and borage and finally also 'forgotten' crops like rivet wheat and bristle-pointed oats. The book's content has been carefully put together using information from academic research papers, agricultural seed and processing companies, industry organisations, and leading archaeobotanists. Illustrated in b&w throughout with crisp, clear botanical drawings taken from life.
A5 sized paperback with glossy covers. 104 pp.
