Peanuts: Genetics, Processing, and Utilization (Oilseed Monograph)presents innovations in crop productivity and processing technologies that help ensure global food security and high quality peanut products. The authors cover three central themes, modern breeding methods for development of agronomic varieties in the U.S., China, West Central Africa, and India, enhanced crop protection and quality through information from the peanut genome sequence, and state-of-the-art processing and manufacturing of products in market environments driven by consumer perception, legislation, and governmental policy.

  • Discusses modern breeding methods and genetically diverse resources for the development of agronomic varieties in the U.S., China, India, and West Central Africa
  • Provides enhanced crop protection and quality through the application of information and genetic tools derived from analysis of the peanut genome sequence
  • Includes state-of-art processing and manufacture of safe, nutritious, and flavorful food products
