New book discusses how to achieve sustainable mango cultivation


Burleigh Dodds Science (BDS) Publishing, the newest Associate Member of TFNet, has released a book on “Achieving Sustainable Cultivation of Mangoes.” It is edited by Dr. Victor Galán Saúco, Instituto Canario de Investigaciones Agrarias (ICIA), Spain and Dr. Ping Lu, Charles Darwin University, Australia.

 

 

Matt De Bono, Marketing Manager for BDS Publishing, describes the book as:

 

Mangoes are one of the most important and widely-cultivated fruits in tropical as well as sub-tropical regions. There have been a number of recent developments with the potential to improve crop yields and quality. There has been new research in understanding the physiology of tree and fruit development with implications for both breeding and cultivation. Analysis of the mango genome promises new, faster breeding techniques to develop improved cultivars. These and other advances are helping to tackle diseases and pests which still cause significant losses. Drawing on an international range of expertise, this new collection focuses on ways of improving the cultivation of mango as a food crop at each step in the value chain, from breeding through to post-harvest storage. Part 1 discusses advances in understanding tree growth, flowering, pollination and fruit development as well as developments in marker-assisted breeding. Part 2 reviews improvements in cultivation practice, including organic and greenhouse cultivation. Part 3 covers post-harvest management and quality, whilst the final part of the book assesses pest and disease management.
