Cover for Introduction.

Field testing - trialling - of oil palm is subject to many factors, chief among them being the basic biological features of the crop (it is a long-lived perennial) and the traits to be assessed (mainly yield, thus mature palms need to be produced). Trialling is the next step after breeders have...

Cover for Regulation of flowering in crop plants.

Recently, the expansion of genomic sequencing and genome editing are enabling progress directly in crops themselves. This is key since, while it is highly tractable, Arabidopsis thaliana is a model dicot, and so it will always be important to assess how relevant it is to crop plants. Nevertheless,...
