The present volume is the first in the series on the ‚ÄúBreeding of Horticultural crops‚ÄĚ. Each volume in the series being edited by very eminent scientists in the field. Dr.V.A.Parthasarathy an eminent Horticultural scientists is the Senior Editor for the series.
The first volume is devoted to Spices and Plantation crops as India has a great tradition in these crops. Many a foreign invasion into this country has been primarily for gaining control over Spice Trade. India is also a leading producer of different spices and plantation crops and the research on these crops have started over a century ago in Kerala at Kasaragod. Hence, it was decided to start the series with these wonderful crops which has a great bearing on Indian economy.
The book is divided into two parts, namely, plantation crops and spices. Twelve spice crops and nine plantation crops have been covered in this book. Each crop has been dealt in detail under various headings such as History and origin, Species and cultivars, Cytogenetics, Genetic resources survey, collection, conservation and evaluation; blossom biology, breeding objectives, approaches for crop improvement using various methods ,molecular aided breeding , biotechnological approaches, marker-assisted selection, bioinformatics, IPR issues and finally achievements and future thrusts.
The book would be great use to all researchers in Horticulture in general and to those working on these crops. This would be valuable text for M.Sc and Ph.D. courses as well for ICAR NET and ARS exams.
¬® General Introduction ¬® Research Status of Global Fermented Fish Products ¬® Results ¬® Discussion ¬® Reference
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.
Thesaurus of Extension Education is a systematic and whole some compilation in the field of extension education consisting of large number of terms, concepts and ideas from various related disciplines of extension like agricultural extension, sociology, educational psychology, rural development, communication, training, information and communication technology, statistics, research methodology in social sciences, teaching-learning and program planning. It serves both as a ready reckoner and guide benefitting academics, professionals, students, researchers, teachers, extension personnel and field practitioners in agriculture. The authors fervently hope the book helps in achieving the objective for which it was intended.
