About the Author

EDITOR Steven E. Ullrich is a Professor and Agronomist in the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences at Washington State University.


"Overall, therefore, the book is not without flaws, but it remainsa comprehensive source of information and a valuable addition tothe literature on a hugely important crop species." (The Journal ofLanguage in Society, 2011) "The book is aimed at an academic rather than a generalreadership and should achieve wide approval amongst barleyscientists, although familiarity with techniques and terminologymay be necessary for some specialist areas." (ExperimentalAgriculture, 2011)
