Description

Sustainable Agriculture: Revisiting Green Chemicals discusses green technologies that help us to understand new green chemicals to reduce plant pathogens and induce plant growth as well as soil health. The most used green chemicals are antioxidants, osmoprotectants, and phytohormones. This book brings together the most relevant information on how we can use microbial resources to develop new formulations for these types of chemicals and technologies for field application. The book offers reference material to chemical engineers, biochemists, agrochemists, industrialists, researchers, and scientists working on sustainable agriculture.
