Many of the foods commonly eaten today were once considered new crops. Bananas were introduced to the U.S. in 1876, soybeans in the 1930s and broccoli in the late 1940s. New crops continue to be introduced in order to realize their commercial advantages, meet the public's changing tastes, provide a healthier diet and reflect ethnic and demographic trends in the population. This book contains a wealth of information on the latest crops for today's new farm industry. Includes numerous illustrations.
