This book contains the proceedings of a seminar held in 1992 on genetic techniques for adapting crop plants to lowered fertiliser inputs and nutritional stresses. The meeting brought together experts from a wide range of backgrounds to determine efficient acquisition and utilisation of mineral nutrients and therefore identify targets for selection and for direct intervention by genetic manipulation. The programme was organised with short formal presentations grouped under the following headings: evidence for, and selection of traits leading to efficient mineral nutrition; characteristics of root morphology and interaction with the rhizosphere; transporters and assimilatory pathways; nutritional stresses and genetic basis of tolerance.
