The Oil Palm Book Description:

The oil palm is the world's most valuable oil crop. With palm oilproduction increasing by more than 50% in the last decade of thetwentieth century and set to double in the next twenty years, ithas never before been so important to understand the history, useand cultivation of this fascinating crop. There have been many new developments since the third edition ofThe Oil Palm in 1988, particularly in the fields of clonalpropagation, agronomy, breeding and molecular genetics. This newedition has been completely rewritten, and is the first book torecord and explore these and many other developments. The book traces the origins and progress of the industry, anddescribes the basic science underlying the physiology, breeding andnutrition of the oil palm. It covers both cutting-edge research,and wider issues such as genetic modification of the crop, thepromise of clonal propagation, and the effects of palm oil on humanhealth. The practical problems of maximising yield of oil andkernels are discussed in relation to the present 'yield gap' andoil extraction rate decline in Malaysia. The oil palm is alsocompared to the soya bean and other oil crops, and the recenthistory of the price of oil palm products is considered in thelight of this. The Oil Palm makes an essential contribution to oil palmresearch and will be an indispensable reference and guide foragricultural students, researchers and all those working,worldwide, in the oil palm industry.
