The world population has increased dramatically in the past century, generating a concern for progressive and sustainable food production. It is expected to further increase by 1.3 billion in 2030 and by 2.5 billion in 2050, reaching 9.7 billion. To provide food security to this growing population, the world food production may need to increase by 60-110%. Biotic and abiotic stresses are major threat to plant growth and halt them from reaching their full genetic potential and ultimately limiting their productivity. High yield varieties are confronted by various stresses which lead to huge loss in production and productivity. Understanding the mechanisms involved in the response of plants to adverse environmental conditions is the first step in the generation of crops with higher tolerance to these stresses. This book provides a broad overview of biotic and abiotic stresses, their mechanisms and different strategies to improve stress tolerance in crop plants. This book is a valuable source book for students, teachers, researchers engaged in stress physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology, plant breeding and soil science. Seller Inventory # 116596

In the present context, it has become indispensable to look for sustainable crop protection, management approaches in the realm of climate change in imperative and the book is an effort in this direction. India however better adapt to climate change by enhancing investments in development programmes in sectors vulnerable to climate change particularly agriculture, water resources, Himalayan region, coastal regions, health and disaster management. Mitigation of adverse effects of climate change is only possible through the development of climate resilient IPM technology for sustainable management of pests in the future. There are 19 well-researched and thought-provoking chapters discussing the effect of climate change on crops through the lens of pests, diseases and nematodes. This book not only provides the reference, but also serves as a guide and inspiration for future research into the realm of modern agriculture with changing climates in India. The scientists, teache.

It mainly includes all family-based agricultural activities, and it is linked to several areas of rural and social development. It is understood as a means of organizing agricultural, forestry, fisheries, pastoral and aquaculture production which is managed and operated by a family and increasingly reliant on family labour of both men and women. In developing countries like India, a number of factors are key for the successful development of family farming, such as: agro-ecological conditions and territorial characteristics; access to markets; policy environment; access to land and natural resources; access to technology and extension services; access to finance; demographic, economic and socio-cultural conditions; availability of specialized education among a few. The United Nations has designated the year 2014 as the International Year of Family Farming at the 66th session of the United Nations General Assembly recognizing the increasing role of family farming in poverty alleviation and rural development in particular. The content of the book offers a diverse selection of chapters that address issues of importance to those in the agriculture industry, researchers, faculty and others. Seller Inventory # 114185
