This book incorporates fast-moving research in agricultural crop improvement and its relationship to climate change. The natural and cultivated habitats of crops are continuously affected. As a result, crop productivity and crop biology are affected continuously by climate change patterns such as environmental hazards, abiotic stresses (water scarcity, salinity, heavy metals, oxidants),and global warming.

This book discusses crop improvement taking into consideration the problems caused by climate change through agricultural processes, soil reclamation, fertilizer and biofertilizer, organic farming, hybridization and breeding programmes, biotechnological approaches, including genetic engineering, transgenesis and tissue culture, and different `omic' technologies. The contributors are scientists, researchers, and academics from around the world who have worked on the challenging problem of achieving crop improvement in a variable environment. Each chapter deals with theoretical as well as applied topics.

This book will be especially useful to scientists and researchers engaged in crop production, crop improvement, plant breeding, agronomy, agricultural processes and biotechnology. It will also be a valuable book for graduate and postgraduate students specializing in crop science, plant biology, plant breeding, environmental science and biotechnology.
