Guava: Botany, Production and Uses

- Technology & Engineering > Agriculture - Agronomy - Crop Science
Notable recent developments include the potential to improve crop yields and quality. New research has also contributed to understanding of the crop environment, plant growth and physiology of tree and fruit development, with implications for both breeding and cultivation. Guava is one of the few tree fruit where round-the-year harvest is possible by crop regulation. Inter specific hybridization between Psidium molle and P.guajava has led to the development of hybrids which are resistant to wilt (a major guava disease in many countries) and are graft compatible with P.guajava.
With contributions from many international experts, this book is focused on ways of improving the cultivation of guava as a food crop at each step in the value chain, from breeding through to post-harvest storage.
