Environment and Crop Production


Ramdane Dris PhD., Shri Mohan Jain PhD, Iqrar Khan PhD

Category: Crop

The book contains papers presented at workshop on the Influence of Environment on Growth, Production, Physiology and Disease of Crops which was held at the University of Helsinki, Finland, December 2000. Articles were selected for inclusion in the book after a process of peer-review and evolution by an editorial board. This articles deal with various issues related to cultivation technology, crop growth, and physiology and disease incidence. The main focus of this book is to review environmental factors influencing the physiological changes and quality of food crops and plant. Actually, there is still lack of recent information on the physiological changes and quality control strategies of various crops. The book can be useful for scientists, researchers, students or experts concerned with various fields such as agriculture, horticulture, plant physiology, plant pathology, plant nutrition and crop cultivation.
