About this item

The improvement of crop species has been a basic pursuit since cultivation began thousands of years ago. Wheat, corn, rice, potato and legumes are expected to lead as the most important crops in the effort to feed an ever-increasing world population. Due to environmental fluctuations, oil seed crops are often exposed to different environmental stresses leading to decreased yield and problems in the growth and development of the crops. This book describes the physiobiochemical, molecular and omic approaches and responses of oil seed crops towards
environmental stress. The chapters throw light on many different aspects. Chapter 1 explains the oil seed
crops in their present state and gives an overview on their future prospects. Chapter 2 describes the improvement of oil seed crops in the era of climatic change. The next chapter provides a transgenic approach in improving oil seed crop yield under environmental stress. The final chapter shows the role of phytohormones in improving yield of oil seed crops under environmental stress.
