Highly recommended by the Soil Association, this is a comprehensive guide to the production of organic pulses and cereals across a range of organic farming systems in northern temperate and maritime regions.  It examines the subject of organic farming in general and considers market demands and the issues that need to be considered when determining management strategies.  Includes 89 colour photographs and 44 line drawings.

Topics covered: soil management and fertility rotations, the selection of cereal and pulse varieties for organic production, crop establishment including cultivation systems, seed rates and drilling options, weed management before, during and after the growing season, pest and disease management, harvesting and appropriate crop storage and the importance of biodiversity management with organic systems.  Also includes different strategies available to those who wish to convert to organic cereal and pulse production, guidelines on crop and soil agronomy, sowing dates and yield expectations and discusses management options when things do not go according to plan.
