Volume 59 contains seven reviews covering key contemporary topics on crop and soil sciences. As always, the topics are varied and exemplary of the array of subject matter covered by this long-running serial. Crop science is represented by chapters on quantitative genetics and plant breeding, wheat, perennial forages, and cotton. These chapters are balanced by synthetic reviews of organoclays in pollution abatement, the applications of micromorphology, and the importance of long-term field research. With this latest volume, Advances in Agronomy continues to be recognized as a leading reference and as a first-rate source of the latest research in agronomy, crop science, and soil science.
