Description du livre June Sutherland, Australia, 2001. Card Cover. État : Excellent. 1st. The importance of wheat in Australia is as important today as it has ever been. The breeding of wheat for its improvement carried on in the 21st century is a sophisticated and complex team operation, a long way from the last decade of the 19th century. The story in this book is a paradigm for the uneasy relationship betweeen science and government, which still exists, for money, resources and patience. A comprehensive, well researched and presented text. Size: 24 Cm. Signed by Author. N° de réf. du libraire 012538
