Abstract

This book covers the scientific basis of biology and production of carrots and related Apiaceae crops, with updated technical crop management content. This new edition is divided intro three sections: (i) crops' importance and main features; (ii) carrots, from their genetic diversity and breeding to cropping systems, pests and disease management, quality, postharvest and valorization; and (iii) main aspects of 13 other cultivated Apiaceae. This book also highlights both unique and shared characteristics among Apiaceae species, describes the links between scientific principles and cropping systems and explores the relationship between crop management and product quality. Root quality, organic production and consumer expectations are also covered.
