The talk of the ‘new normal’ i.e. climate crises has become louder and louder in the present era. It is unparalleled to compare the rate of today’s climate crises with that of the last 2000 years. With the increasing population which is 7 billion at present and expecting to increase at 10.5 billion in a period of 70–80 years, the concern for food security is a must as the impacts of climate crises has now become monstrous. The present condition adversely affects more of the arid and semiarid zones of the world. Therefore, smart mitigation and adaptation strategies are to be elevated for environmental sustainability.
Climate crises also lead to abiotic stresses; such as, drought, salinity, temperature, waterlogging, heavy metals and so on which result in hamper crop growth, less productivity, less time for accumulation of biomass, and food insecurity as a whole. Crop improvement through advanced molecular and plant breeding programmes using the available plant genetic resources that can cope with the changing climate crises is the need of the hour.
This edited book is a contribution of the genuine researchers and scientists who have been concerning much about abiotic stress and its crop management strategies using recent molecular advances and moreover aims to sustainability to serve Mother Nature.
The essence of this book is that it opens the world of proven possibilities of making a sustainable development through the utilization of available genetic resources, exploration of conventional and non-conventional plant breeding methods, advanced management practices, and governmental policies and schemes by squeezing every potentiality out of it. It will be of great benefit for future researchers, scientists, academician, and the public.
