Summary This book provides an overall perspective on the current progress being made in the area of abiotic stresses and their management for sustainable agriculture. It contains 15 chapters divided into three sections: (i) temperature, water and salinity stress; (ii) heavy metals and ozone; and (iii) general abiotic stresses and their alleviation by microbes (such as beneficial soil microbes including Trichoderma harzianum). This book takes a holistic approach from basics to advanced technologies, with the main objective being to put together sufficient information on how to take forward sustainable agriculture in the face of mild to extreme environmental changes occurring in nature. The book offers insights into the various factors reducing crop productivity and highlights different mechanisms of resistance and approaches that could be used in sustainable agriculture. It is hoped that this book will be of use to agricultural scientists, the agro-industry, academicians and researchers working in the area of abiotic stress and its management.
