By Haim D Rabinowitch, Lesley Currah

The Alliums are essentially the most old cultivated vegetation and contain onions, garlic, leeks and different similar crops. the first target of this e-book is to compile, in one quantity, up to date wisdom acquired through various medical disciplines, from the elemental molecular point, to software within the box, of the allium crops.It includes commissioned chapters on themes that experience proven significant advances fairly within the final ten years similar to molecular biology, floriculture and agronomy. individuals comprise major global experts from Europe, the us, Japan and New Zealand.

Allium Crop Science: Recent Advances

The Alliums are the most historic cultivated vegetation and comprise onions, garlic, leeks and different similar crops. the first goal of this booklet is to assemble, in one quantity, up to date wisdom acquired by way of numerous clinical disciplines, from the elemental molecular point, to software within the box, of the allium plants.

Plant Breeding Reviews, Volume 21

Plant Breeding studies is an ongoing sequence offering state-of-the paintings evaluation articles on study in plant genetics, particularly the breeding of commercially vital vegetation. Articles practice the dear functionality of gathering, evaluating, and contrasting the first magazine literature so one can shape an outline of the subject.

Example text

Therefore, one has to rely mostly upon written records, carvings and paintings. Hence, the picture one obtains of the history of such species is fragmentary, at least for the earlier epochs. The conventional wisdom on the history of cultivation of the common onion has been summarized by Helm (1956), Jones and Mann (1963), Kazakova (1978) and Havey (1995) and was briefly discussed by Hanelt (1990). Hence, only a very short review is given here. Allium cepa is one of the oldest cultivated vegetables, recorded for over 4000 years.

The group is of minor economic importance. Locally adapted clones and cultivars are grown mainly in home gardens in Europe, America and Asia for dry bulbs and, more rarely, for green leaves. g. West Africa, Thailand, Sri Lanka and other South-East Asian countries, and the Caribbean area. In France and other European countries, as well as in the USA, shallots are favoured for their special flavour. In tropical areas, shallots are used as onion substitutes because of their ability to propagate vegetatively and their short growth cycle, and perhaps because they are resistant to local diseases.

Further development of leaf primordium (LP) in the vegetative apical meristem (VM) of A. aschersonianum. Older leaf primordia removed. C. Floral initiation in A. aschersonianum. Spathe (SP) surrounds the swollen reproductive meristem (RM). D. Spathe (SP) of A. nigrum envelops the reproductive meristem. Renewal bulb (RB) is initiated in the axis of the last leaf (removed), near the base of the floral stalk. E. Differentiation of four centres of development in a reproductive meristem of shallot, with spathe (SP) removed.
