Modern plant breeding has been very unsuccessful at improving resistance of crops to to pests and diseases. The book explains this solution, with reference to the drawbacks of Mendelian genetics compared to a biometric approach, types of infection and host-parasite interaction, epidemics, genetic uniformity and diversity, genetic response to selection pressure, plant pathosystems, and the disadvantages of current methods of crop protection and breeding.

In the tradition of Silent Spring, Raoul Robinson's Return to Resistance calls for a revolution. Raoul A. Robinson is a Canadian/British plant scientist with more than 40 years of wide-ranging experience in crop improvement for both commercial and subsistence agriculture

In the tradition of Silent Spring, Raoul Robinson's Return to Resistance calls for a revolution. Traditional plant breeding techniques have led us to depend more and more on chemical pesticides to protect ourcrops. Robinson is a Canadian/British plant scientist with more than 40 years of wide-ranging experience in crop improvement for both commercial and subsistence agriculture. Over the course of his adventurous and productive career, Dr Robinson has concentrated most intensively on maize, potatoes, beans, and coffee.

Analyzes contemporary crop breeding's successes and shortcomings and details new techniques of breeding food crops with inherited immunity. Discusses the pitfalls of classical plant breeding and the green revolution, offers case histories of crops that have been successfully bred to overcome blight and insects, and shows how to organize breeding clubs. Features an alphabetical encyclopedia of plant breeding techniques and advice, plus a glossary. Published by AgAccess, 603 Fourth St., Davis, CA 95616. (916) 756-7177.
