This book discusses various plant adpatations and techniques for crop improvement. Improvements in adaptation and maturity leading to greater yield are the most important criteria for the acceptance of a new crop cultivar since it is the yield which dictates the economic value of the crop therefore yield improvement is one goal of virtually every crop breeding program. Direct adaptation to these changes can occur through changes in crop farm and value chain management and via economically driven geographic shifts where different production systems operate within specific crops a longer term adaptation is the breeding of new varieties that have an improved performance in future growing conditions . Book plant adaptation and crop improvement 1996 pp651 pp abstract thirty papers on the selection of appropriate crop improvement strategies in relation with variable environments and associated genotype environment gxe interactions are included. The objective of the workshop was to evaluate progress in the evaluation of plant adaptation for target environments with respect to crop improvement and to develop a strategy for integrating these technologies for the development of sustained crop improvement programmes particularly suited to heterogeneous target populations of environments
