Global warming and climate change is the gravest concern of mankind in 21st century. Horticulture, in India with approximately 30% contribution in agricultural GDP from only 8% of cultivated land is threatened with serious consequences in production, quality and processing and increased cost of plant protection. The knowledge about the impact of climate change on horticultural crops is limited. Addressing problems of climate change is more challenging in horticulture crops compared to annual food crops. The issues of climate change and solution to the problems arising out of it requires thorough analysis, advance planning and improved management. Horticulture, in future scenarios of climate change offers numerous opportunities as well. These need to be harnessed by careful policy planning, innovation, technology development and refinement. This book, ?Challenges of Climate Change ? Indian Horticulture? is a collection of scholarly articles on horticultural crops incorporating intense deliberations and discussions by eminent horticultural scientists in a ?Brain Storming Session? held at Central Potato Research Institute, Shimla, India. Each article reviews the current scientific knowledge, analyses the likely impacts of climate change on quality and production, suggests possible adaptation and mitigation measures along with future strategies of research and development. Additionally important websites for information, research institutes involved with climate change, important scientific journals on climate change, brief notes on important conferences on climate change and their significance and proceedings and recommendations of the Brain Storming Session is included in Annexure for further reading. The book will be highly and equally valuable to research workers, students, policy planners and farmers to manage climate change in near future.
