Rice Abstracts is a fully searchable abstracts database of internationally published research, bringing you the latest information on rice production, from breeding and agronomy to storage, consumption and marketing.
Rice Abstracts is a fully searchable abstracts database of internationally published research. Rice Abstracts brings you the latest information on rice production, from breeding and agronomy to storage, consumption and marketing.
Derived from CAB Abstracts, the original applied life sciences database, coverage includes: crop husbandry, crop protection, rice breeding, rice physiology, rice harvesting, food technology and nutritional aspects, and economics.
Each week Rice Abstracts delivers all the new highly-targeted, searchable summaries covering key English and non-English language journal articles, reports, conferences and books about rice. Over 6,000 records are added to the database each year.
Rice Abstracts includes a fully searchable backfile to 1977. Over 120,000 research summaries bring a wealth of current and seminal research in rice to your fingertips!
Rice Abstracts updated weekly online, it is also available in print, delivered quarterly.
