Vegetable is considered one of the most important commodities in agriculture and an impressive growth has been recorded in vegetable production since independence, which was merely 5.8 tons per hectare. However, there is need of to increase the vegetable productivity to meet the increasing demand of the growing populations.
Challenges of shrinking land and water resources with a threat of climate change need an effective support in term of human resources vis-a-vis financial support for the development of technologies. Development of vegetable hybrids embedded with gene for higher yield and resistance to biotic/ abiotic stresses; production and protection technologies for mitigating the problematic soil, use of less water and nutrient and safe management of pests and diseases, reduction in post -harvest losses and value addition are need of the hour.
The book Vegetable Science: Objective Type is based on multiple choice questions, difference in between, fill in the blanks and true and false which covers vegetable crops based on production, breeding and biotechnology, statistics, biometrics and application of computer. In this book, authors have also given latest information's in agriculture as special chapter General Agriculture for updating knowledge in agriculture for readers.
