Description

This book provides a comprehensive overview of almond growing from a scientific and horticultural perspective, covering botany in addition to processing and industrial uses. Almonds are an important crop; they are highly regarded for their flavor, nutritional properties and culinary uses, and almond oil is used widely in food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical production. They are easy to transport and have long storability, facilitating global dissemination. Demand is constantly increasing and global production has more than doubled in the last 20 years.

The popularity of almonds and the increase in demand has required new plantings and a response to ongoing changes in cultural and climatic conditions. Almonds: Botany, Production and Uses meets the need for up-to-date information on this crop and covers:

• Botany and taxonomy
• Cultivation, genetics, and breeding
• Propagation, orchard management, and harvesting
• Pests and diseases
• Nutrition, marketing, and utilization

Authored by an international team of experts and presented in full color throughout, this book is an essential resource for academic researchers and extension workers in addition to growers, orchard managers, and industry personnel.
