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.
