The compendium on ‚ÄúStatistics of Pulses‚ÄĚ is comprised on 261 tables on various aspects of production of pulses on global, national and within India at state levels; availability and import and export of pulses; nutritional values of important pulses; irrigated area under pulses; response of pulses to rhizobium inculcation; varieties developed, possessing resistance/tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses and special traits suiting to different ecologies; projections on demand of pulses up to 2030; seed requirement and strategy to enhance the breeder, foundation and certified seeds; developmental activities to enhance the production of pulses through productivity increase and area expansion; and research infrastructure to take up herculean task to meet the pulses requirement of the nation. This compendium covered as many as 23 grain legumes, meeting the need of grains, vegetable, fodder, industrial medicinal and soil health. This compendium will help the students, teachers and extension/developmental workers in getting the statistical information on pulses in concise form.

The sustainable use of microorganisms in food fermentation is based on an interrelationship with regard to indigenous knowledge of food fermentation, modern expertise and information, basic understanding of the microbial background of a fermentation and of good hygienic practices, and conservation of microbial strains. Ethnic fermented fish products of the Eastern Himalayas including North East India are considered to preserve microbial diversity ex situ and they are custodians of microbial diversity and play a key role in the storage and supply of authentic reference material for research and development. This book has updated and collated information and researches carried out on microbiology and health-promoting benefits of fermented and traditionally preserved fish products of the Eastern Himalayas including North East India. The present book is the first of this kind on compilation of various traditionally preserved ethnic fish products of the Eastern Himalayas including North East India regions.
Food is one of the fewest things that man must need for survival. At the beginning of our civilization, man only needed food that can help him to survive. But with advancing ages and development of civilization, man has also improved his fooding habits substantially. Previously food was just for survival but now food has got several newer dimensions. Food is not only for satire of stomach or getting energy, but is also for nutritional aspects. With the development of civilization, some new aspects like food taste, food quality, food safety, food microbiology, food nutrient content, food dynamics, etc have appeared. Researches on these divisions have shown an upsurge. Since the beginning of 20th centuries, enormous amount of research work is going on worldwide which are related to food and food improvements. Man cannot live without food and hence it would keep on updating its perception and quality. Research and innovations related to food would keep on going and hence the book would prove to be the best input for academicians and researchers related to food science and allied sectors.
After thorough discussions and planning, the editorial team came to a conclusion to form an edited type book consisting of diverse aspects related to food and newer concepts and trends related to the topic. The book contains 38 chapters which are contributed by scientists, researchers, scholars from biggest institutes all over the globe. The book contains chapters with recent thrust and future prospects related to Food and allied researches. With this vision the book entitled ‚ÄúTrends & Prospects in Food technology, processing and preservation‚ÄĚ is designed. Hopefully, the book would prove out to be the very useful for not only finding recent research ideas but also the latest topic on which research emphasis can be done.
