    Plant physiology is now considered as an essential ingredient for improving crop productivity, a continuing necessity with today’s ever-increasing world population. This new volume provides an understanding of the physiological basis of the various plant processes and their underlying mechanisms under fluctuating environments, which is of great importance for sustainable crop production.

    Further advances in cellular and molecular biology hold promise to modify physiological processes, thereby improving the quality and quantity of major food crops and ensuring stability in yield of the produce even under severe abiotic stress. This book covers the latest information on the physiological basis of plant productivity, including abiotic stress adaptation and management, plant nutrition, climate change and plant productivity, transgenic and functional genomics, and plant growth regulators and their applications.

    The chapters in this volume tackle some of these key issues of sustainable plant production and evolve future strategies in overcoming challenges faced by the agricultural sector as a whole. The topics covered in this book presents important from research reputed scientists. This volume is a rich source of information in one place. It will be a useful resource for researchers and extension workers involved in plant physiology and related disciplines.

    "Exceptionally well-documented accounts of physiological aspects for sustainable crop yield, successfully edited by Professor Abbas, Dr. Pradeep Kumar, and Dr. Ajay Kumar Tiwari. The book will have an extensive impact on the field of crop physiology. In this rich and comprehensive documentation, different authors have contributed in view of providing the scope to explore various modern trends for sustainable crop production focusing on human welfare. The perfect sequence of the chapters, including neat and clean illustrations as well as relevant references throughout, remarkably reveals a convincing and delightfully readable narrative. . . . Future efforts along these notions and objectives would certainly provide new insights into the sequential development of fascinating tools for sustainable crop production."
