This book is designed to offer comprehensive information on the nutritional significance of vegetables in the areas of human nutrition, physiology, post-harvest technology, biochemistry, and biotechnology. The text provides precise details on the physio-biochemical and biotechnological aspects of vegetable crops, including their resistance to diseases and herbicides, tolerance to drought and salinity, and physical attributes such as shape, size, texture, and color. The book also offers solutions to problems faced by students, scientists, growers, and trade.

The information contained in this book is based on scientific research conducted by experts in vegetable studies from various institutions. This compilation is aimed at postgraduate and postdoctoral students to enhance their understanding of the subject and improve their knowledge in the field of physio-biochemistry and biotechnology of vegetable crops. Moreover, this book may be useful to others who wish to expand their knowledge in this field and gain greater financial rewards from vegetable crops.
