Product Description

Review

"Provides all of the information that most readers would ever need in a concise manner. . . .I am pleased to have a copy of Cucurbits in my personal library. Others--growers, students, extension faculty, teachers, researchers, fanciers--with an interest in the vine crops will find this book useful and enjoyable to read and to have as a ready reference."--HortScience"Understandably, this volume is rich in information about the cultivated species....the book will be a valued addition to anyone's cucurbit and commercial horticultural library."--Quarterly Review of Biology"Cucurbits ... is part of the Crop Production Science in Horticulture Series which emphasizes 'the scientific principles underlying crop production practices.' As stated, the book is scientifically oriented and not easy reading. However, it contains a great amount of 'one of the most genetically diverse groups of plants in the plant kingdom, ' which range from cucumbers to squash to loofahs. Major and minor crops are discussed individually, and there is more general information about cultural requirements, pests and diseases, and genetics and breeding, among others. Although some sections reflect the tendencies of the current conventional agriculture, they are far outweighed by basic and practical information about these plants. The book should prove useful to serious growers."--Ecology Action Newsletter
