Physiology of Crop Plants

P.C. Trivedi (Editor)

Plant Physiologist have to give serious thought on the shortfall of grain production, and have to be more active for finding constraints in low productivity for agricultural, horticultural and forest species especially in the comparison of other countries. In the new millenium, we will have to produce more food and other agricultural commodities under the conditions diminishing per capita arable land and irrigation water resources and fast expanding biotic stresses. For sustainable agricultural development, we should focus on productivity and our R & D priorities must be carefully formulated.

This book "Physiology of Crop Plants" contains 10 articles by the scholars of the country on different aspects of the subjects. Topics covered in the book includes : Physiology of Flowering; Fruit Ripening, Senescence and Biological Clock; Photo Morphogenesis and Phytochrome; Physiological and Molecular Mechanism of Micronutrient Uptake Focused on Zinc and Iron Translocation and Accumulation in Rice; Short Term Responses of Crops to Lead Toxicity; Impact of High Temperature on Sexual Reproduction and Crop Yield; Role of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi in Uptake of nutrients; Influence of Gamma Radiation on Plant Growth and Elicitation of Metabolites Production by Licorice Hairy Roots Cultures. Article on "Rhizosphere Competence in Plant-Probiotic Bacteria for Sustainable agriculture" have added to the value of the book.

This books will be highly beneficial to students, teachers and research workers in the field of Plant Physiology, Agriculture and Plant Science.
