Sustainable Horticulture, Volume 2: Food, Health, and Nutrition addresses some of the most important topics facing horticulture around the world today. This volume, part of the two-volume compendium, focuses on research trends in sustainable horticulture that include postharvest management and processed food production from horticulture crops, crop protection and plant health management, and horticulture for human health and nutrition.

Global food demand is expected to be double by 2050, while at the same time the production environment and natural resources are continually shrinking and deteriorating due to many complex factors. Horticulture, a major sector of agriculture, is vital to enhancing crop production and productivity in parity with agricultural crops to meet the emerging food demand. Implementing sustainable models of crop production is really an enormous endeavor. Promising technologies and management options are needed to increase productivity to meet the growing food demand despite deteriorating production environments.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A MAJOR PIECE OF SCHOLASTIC WORK THAT COVERS THE ENTIRE GAMUT OF THE STUDY OF HORTICULTURE, ranging from the diversity, genetics, biotechnology, crop improvement, field production, crop protection, postharvest management, processing, marketing, as well as the health and nutrition aspects. The geographical focus of both volumes is South East Asia, with emphasis on the vast Indian subcontinent and associated islands. It provides readers with a comprehensive understanding of the various aspects of the horticultural scenario in India and other countries in the region. Taken together, the two volumes make for VERY INTERESTING INSTRUCTIVE, AND INFORMATIVE READING. They will serve as reference materials for several years to come."

-Professor S. Facknath, PhD (UK), PhD (Mtius), Faculty of Agriculture, University of Mauritius
