This collection reviews advances in research on improving barley cultivation across the value chain. Part 1 reviews advances in understanding barley physiology in such areas as plant growth, grain development and plant response to abiotic stress. There is also a review of current developments in mapping the barley genome. Building on this foundation, the second part of the book summarises advances in breeding with chapters on breeding trial design as well as advances in molecular breeding techniques such as genome wide association studies (GWAS) and targeted induced lesions in genomes (TILLING). The book also shows how such techniques have been deployed to develop abiotic stress-resistant varieties. Part 3 looks further along the value chain at ways of optimising cultivation practices. There are chapters on good agricultural practices and post-harvest storage as well as fungal diseases and weeds integrated methods for their management. The final part of the book assesses current research on optimising barley for particular end uses such as malting, brewing and animal feed. With its breadth of coverage and expertise, this will be a standard reference for barley scientists working in universities and other research centres, governments and commercial companies as well as barley growers and processors.
