520    Organic crop production utilizes different approaches and 
       growing environments compared to conventionally raised 
       crops to achieve production in growing systems that mimic 
       natural ecosystems. These systems seek to employ fewer 
       direct inputs and innovative agronomic methods to achieve 
       this goal. This alternative approach has attracted great 
       interest in this rapidly expanding method of crop 
       production. Organic Crop Breeding brings together the 
       latest research on the development of new varieties and 
       cultivars best suited to thrive under organic production. 
       It will also be of interest to those breeding in 
       conventional systems who wish to adapt their breeding 
       goals to sustainable low input agriculture.  Organic Crop 
       Breeding will be a useful tool to helping meet the 
       increasing global demand for organically produced grains, 
       vegetables, and fruits. The book is divided into two 
       sections that logically cover the topic from foundational 
       principles to crop-specific examples of organic breeding 
       efforts. The opening section looks at general topics 
       related to organic crop breeding ranging from nutrient 
       management to disease and pest resistance. The second 
       section looks at the applications of these principles to 
       economically important crops such as wheat, maize, rice, 
       potato, legumes and tomato.   Written by a global team of 
       the leading experts in the field, Organic Crop Breeding is
       a field-defining reference that will be of both academic 
       and practical use
