About The Book

This book discusses the Current Scenario in Agricultural and Allied Sciences. This book focuses on agricultural technologies to boost the production and productivity. The Food demand is steadily increasing due to concerns about the sustainability of the global environment. Crops typically face increasing numbers of abiotic and biotic stresses. A significant change in climate on a global scale will impact vegetable cultivation and agriculture as a whole; consequently, affect the world's food supply. Thus, the combined efforts of crop modeling experts, agronomists, field pathologists, breeders, physiologists and molecular biologists can develop joint stress tolerant crops that perform well under field conditions. The chapters will clearly define the Current Scenario in Agricultural and Allied Sciences. We wish to express a deep sense of gratitude to those who helped us directly or indirectly during the preparation of the manuscript of this text. We hope that the book is valuable and exciting to readers, teachers, and students and would urge them to know more about recent research related to Smart Agriculture. We are highly thankful to all authors who contribute their research/ideas to enhance the book's utility.
