Foreward:
The main focus of this book is on two major aspects, namely, mineral nutrition and quality management, and secondly, on the effect of preharvest or postharvest practices on quality of crops grown under different climatic conditions, worldwide. We have highlighted the achievements related to minimizing the postharvest loss by providing information on production, physiological changes, pre- and postharvest storage requirements, storage problems, and nutrient management systems in relation to plant health and production, environment protection in agriculture and in postharvest and processing aspects. Sixteen chapters are included in the first volume of this book.
