    schema:description "Sustainable horticulture movement is growing the past few decades and gaining increasing attention among the scientific and farming community. An understanding of the impacts and relevant adaptation strategies are of foremost importance to sustain the productivity and profitability of horticulture crops in the climate change scenario, which necessitates synthesis of current knowledge to develop strategies for adaptation and mitigation to achieve climate-resilient horticulture. Issues have been covered in various chapters to make this book a treasure of knowledge in sustainable horticulture. Specific examples in fruits and vegetables included and various other important aspects like climate change, pests and diseases, soil are also covered in the book. The chapters have been written by well- known professionals in their research field. The book contains three sections; Sustainable Horticultural Systems, Biodiversity in Sustainable Horticultural Systems and Breeding and Improvement in Sustainable Horticultural Systems. The book is useful for undergraduates, graduates students, horticulturists, agriculture researchers and extension agents, plant scientists as well as horticultural industries. It will therefore help all scientists, decision-makers, professors, farmers and politicians who wish to build a safe agriculture, energy and food system for future generations."@en ;
