Abstract

Mansfeld's Encyclopedia of Agricultural and Horticultural Crops is a resource guide compiled from the contribution of over 20 experts on agronomy and botany. It provides a full account of over 6,000 cultivated species across the globe. The species discussed are used for a wide range of purposes, including food, oil, fiber, and manufacturing, and the encyclopedia even discusses plants that have been grown historically but are not used today. For the reader interested in the wide potential of cultivable plants, this is the ultimate guide.
