Vegetable Crops (Volume 2)

T K Bose (Editor) J. Kabir (Editor) V A Parthasarathy (Editor)
Synopsis The first edition of the book entitled ‘Vegetable Crops in India’ published in 1986 was revised in 1993 with the title ‘Vegetable Crops’. Both the previous editions were considered as outstanding publication on the subject and proved valuable to the students, teachers, researchers and extension specialists in horticulture in general and olericulture in particular, in different parts of the world. During the period after the book was revised in 1993, enormous work has been reported on important vegetable crops and it was considered necessary to revise the book again and review the results reported on the improvement in production and quality of these crops. Chapters on solanaceous vegetables (tomato, capsicum and chilli and brinjal), cole crops and cucurbits have been included in volume one in about 700 pages. Volume two consists of chapters on root crops, pea and beans, other root and tuber crops. Volume three comprising chapters on bulb crops, salad crops, leafy vegetables, okra and perennial vegetables will be published shortly.
