The book entitled Vegetable Science: Subjective is a long felt need of Indian students for graduate and post- graduate levels of Olericulture. This book has been designed to cover the courses offered by various universities/ institutes for seeking degree in Vegetable Science and also the syllabi of various competitive examinations for the requirements of those students who are to compete for ARS, NET, SRF, JRF, SET, and Ph D entrance examinations. The book Vegetable Science Subjective has been written in subjective mode comprised of Three Sections and presented both in text and tabular form.

The Section-I of the book deals information’s related to Advances in Vegetable Science which includes vegetable science education research and extension, vegetable scenario, nutrition and medicinal values, vertical expansion, high-tech production, nutrient management, production in changing climatic scenario, plant health managements and post-harvest and value addition.

The Section-II covers vegetable breeding, biotechnology including molecular breeding, nanotechnology, seed technology and intellectual property right. In Section-III authors have given information’s related to vegetable production aspects which cover varieties / hybrids, agro-techniques and plant protection including physiological disorders.
