Plant Biotechnology is a engine for green to  evergreen revolution.
It has been shown great promise in recent years for improving crop productivity, reducing environmental pollution through reduction in pesticide use and improving the quality of agricultural produce.
Biotechnological tools have also helped in understanding molecular regulation of biological processes and characterization of microorganisms.
The GM crops developed to address sociological concerns like the Vitamin-A deficiency, iron deficiency and malnutrition will pay an equally important role in achieving food security.
The present book “ Harnessing Plant Biotechnology and Physiology to stimulate Agricultural Growth” incorporates review and research articles on varied aspects of biotechnology applications.
This volume contains 15 Chapters written by leading experts in the discipline incorporating recent developments in the subject.
Articles related to two major sections i.e. Plant Biotechnology and Physiology to stimulate agricultural growth in crops have been included.
Topics covered in the book are : Molecular markers associated with powdery mildew resistance in different crop plants; Fungi as cellular factories for production of industrially important enzymes : Determination of radiosensitivity : Prerequisite factor for induced mutagenesis ; Salicyclic acid plays a central role in defence signalling influencing systemic acquired resistance and abiotic stresses ; Plant responses to drought stress: Morphological and Biochemical parameters;  Biofortification of crops for reducing malnutrition; Climatic change impact in sugarcane agriculture and mitigation strategies; Genomics and Proteomics of cold tolerance in food crops; Genetic diversity on groundnut (Arachis hypogaea); Application of Flow cyto-genetics in crop improvement ; Molecular diagnostics of plant diseases; Role of biotechnology in plant disease management; Physiological and genetic aspect of earliness in common bean; Canning and nutritional properties common bean (Phaseolus vulgaries); Glucosinolates: Biosynthesis, metabolism, transport and environmental interactions in Brassicaceae.
This book will prove helpful to those interested in Plant Biotechnology and Physiology, Agriculture, Plant Pathology and Plant sciences students, teachers, researchers and farmers.
