It provides a survey of the chemistry, synthesis, physiology, and practical applications of brassinosteroids, in experimental and agricultural references alike. With contributions from all over the world, including Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America, this volume presents an accurate and comprehensive picture of the present state of research and development in brassinosteroids. Of special interest is the presentation of results of large-scale field trials in China, which strongly indicate the economic potential of these compounds as environmentally benign agricultural chemicals to significantly increase crop yields.
