Description

Advances in Rice Research for Abiotic Stress Tolerance provides an important guide on recognizing, assessing and addressing the broad range of environmental factors that can inhibit crop yield. As a staple food for nearly half of the world’s population, improving and increasing crop yield is imperative. This book presents current research on abiotic stresses, including extreme temperature variance, drought, hypoxia, salinity, heavy metals, nutrient deficiency and toxicity stresses. Going further, it identifies a variety of approaches to alleviate the damaging effects of abiotic stress on rice, along with current advanced processes being used to develop abiotic stress tolerant in rice crop.

The book provides an important reference for those ensuring optimal yields from this globally important food crop.

Key Features

  • Covers aspects of abiotic stress, from research, history, practical field problems faced by rice, and the possible remedies to the adverse effects of abiotic stresses
  • Provides practical insights into a wide range of management and crop improvement practices
  • Presents a valuable, single-volume sourcebook for rice scientists dealing with agronomy, physiology, molecular biology and biotechnology

Readership

Graduate (M.S. and PhD) Students, Researchers of different organizations, University faculty members in the field of Agriculture, Agronomy, Botany, Plant Physiology, Environmental Science, Food Science
