Abiotic Stresses and Crop Productivity

S R Maloo (Author)
Synopsis This book presents the information on some of the important hostile factors like stresses on moisture, salinity, temperature and their efficient management. Chapters on important aspects like management of salt-affected soils through cultural manipulations, soil physical conditions and their management, and suitability of saline water for irrigation. It includes an interesting chapter on optimal utilization of available water resources and their conservation for drylands. It also deals with the role of antitranspirants in agriculture, horticulture, silvopasture and forestry. Further, essential agro-techniques for successful fruit culture under stress conditions are critically discussed. Taking into account the latest advances in science, the book covers much needed information for students and researchers on recombinant DNA technology, transgenic approach, biochemical and molecular basis for developing stress tolerant plants. The book devotes considerable attention to the discussion of crop ideotype breeding, development of molecular markers and marker assisted selection under stress situations. Besides, the utility of different screening methods, experimental designs and field plot techniques useful for selection of tolerant genotypes are also highlighted.
