The book‚ÄĚ Primciples and practices of Seed Production of vegetable crops‚ÄĚ, is a hard work of Senior Author, Dr. Shankar Lal and his associates. This document deals with eleven major chapters on general aspects , their development and categories, promotion of vegetable seed industries in the country. The detailed guidelines have been given for seed production and certification of various categories of seeds. The detailed information on 44 vegetables ( 3 solanaceous, 13 cucurbitaceous, 3 cole crops,, 4 root crops, 2 bulb crops, 6 legumes, 1 capsule,, 6 leafy crops,, 2 tuber crops, 3 rhizomes and corms and 1 salad crop) has been provided. For making informative, it has included 117 photographs, and 81 tables, mostly on improved varieties and hybrids. It has also provided list of vegetable Seed Certification Agencies, Seed Corporations and 25 top seed producing companies in the country. The special chapters on role of hybrids on vegetable production, Indian vegetable seed production- status and perspectives and intellectual property right. Have also been provided.
The book will be quite useful to students, teachers, researchers and extension workers. This will be useful guide to seed growers and seed industries in promoting their business through quaility seed
Aquaculture is the farming of fish, crustaceans, molluscs, aquatic plants, and other aquatic organisms. Aquaculture involves cultivating freshwater and saltwater populations under controlled conditions, and can be contrasted with commercial fishing, which is the harvesting of wild fish. It is commonly known as aquafarming. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), aquaculture ‚Äúis understood to mean the farming of aquatic organisms including fish, molluscs, crustaceans and aquatic plants. Farming implies some form of intervention in the rearing process to enhance production, such as regular stocking, feeding, protection from predators, etc. Farming also implies individual or corporate ownership of the stock being cultivated.‚ÄĚ
To come up with new research trends in fisheries we have designed a book- CONTEMPORARY TRENDS IN FISHERIES AND AQUACULTURE. The 28 chapters of this book are a serious work done by researchers, scientists in the field of fisheries and aquaculture. The book covered a wide spectrum of subject related topics such as distribution of aquaculture organisms in world, fishes migration, habitat ecology of crabs, aqua plants and their medical importance.
Some chapters deals with various concepts of aquaculture organisms such as probiotics use in aquaculture, zooplanktons abundance, reproductive system, circulatory system, effects of some harmone on aquaculture organisms and parasites that invade aquaculture organisms. The contributed authors have also worked on serious environmental issues such as assessment of drinking water, microbial quality of fishes, status of fish diseases, and effects of physico-chemical parameters of river regulation etc.
The proceedings of this book describe an attempt for interaction by the juxtaposition of researchers in aquaculture that provided an opportunity for presentations, discussion, and interaction of mutual benefit to the readers.
It is hoped that the book- CONTEMPORARY TRENDS IN FISHERIES AND AQUACULTURE accompany recommendations on future work and research priorities with a modest but useful steps toward supporting the safe and sustainable expansion of aquaculture in developing countries. Much more research is needed and this will require an increased commitment of resources.

The object of the book is to serve a constructive purpose of manual of practical information for the use of intelligent agriculturalist in the protection of his crop from insect pests to provide a suitable textbook of use in agricultural schools and colleges to acquaint them with the working knowledge of insect pests and of the practical measures for the protection of crops. This book is a testimony to the strenuous efforts made during a decade of years in the field of economic entomology dealing with insect pests and their treatment by the author.
In this book the author has given a short account of the general features of the lives of insects as well as salient facts concerning destructive pests and closely concerned his study with the part played by them in the reduction of the yield of the staple crops of the country and based his study on the Indian Museum notes and other literature-besides his and other colleagues in the field and valuable information collected from Mamlatdar, Tehsildar to the high officials of the Government of India namely Director of Agriculture, Imperial Entomologist, Botanists and Horticulturist, the illustrations are largely the work of the artist in the Indian Museum Babu C.C. Chakraburthy and remaining were prepared by other artists under the supervision of the author.
