“Microscopic Analysis of Agriculture Products Book Plus”
Recognizing the tremendous increase in the area of agricultural microscopy, The Manual of Microscopic Analysis of Agricultural Products, Fourth Edition provides a more inclusive approach to the microscopy of agricultural products. The area of animal protein products and their detection in light of outbreaks of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), or Mad Cow Disease, as well as other Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSEs), requires a much more detailed methodology for detecting the presence of animal protein products. Returning to our roots, so to speak, we have included coverage of fertilizers and expanded the number of unusual feed ingredients.
Agricultural microscopy is both an art and applied science that draws from many academic disciplines. Plant and animal anatomy, feed technology, and analytical chemistry are just a few that have contributed. This manual is designed as a study guide for the beginning microscopist and as a reference for the more experienced. Microscopists and others working toward common goals of agricultural product identification.
