Leafy Vegetable

Atiya Khanum (Editor) Irfan Ali Khan (Editor) G. Baskar Rajan (Author)
Synopsis Leafy vegetables are among the most universally used vegetable crops grown today. Their prominence as important crops has been lightened through the last several decades due to an awareness on the part of consumers of the nutrient, and other obvious values they offer to the diet as “fresh greens” which, at least in India have become a daily table stable. As a result, acreage planted to leafy salad vegetable crops has expanded to a remarkable degree over the past few decades, making these crops an important segment of the horticultural and marketing industries. Published information on leafy salad vegetables has been widespread and scattered. This book brings together all up—to-date information and is amply referenced throughout for further study and information. Similarities and differences among the species are discussed and provide insight into the place these species hold in the world cropping system and in the human diet. This approach to text organization was made in an effort to be helpful to the widest type of readership, professional researchers and teachers, graduate and undergraduate students, extension workers farmers and other members of the horticultural community, and, perhaps, even lay readers who are the ultimate consumers. Leafy salad vegetables seemed to be a natural crop grouping, having a number of common characteristics. The crops discussed, however, do not form an exhaustive list The origin, taxonomy, distribution, nutritive value, uses, varieties, production package, pest and diseases and post harvest technology of different tropical, subtropical and temperate vegetables were discussed which will be useful students, researchers, vegetable growers, dieticians etc. There is exhaustive discussion of primary on tropical leafy vegetables, the discussion of Brassica oleracea is limited to cabbage, but could conceivably have included some of the other forms.
