About this book

This text focuses on mineral nutrition and quality management; and on the effect of pre-harvest or post-harvest practices on the quality of crops grown under different climate conditions worldwide. The book highlights achievements in minimizing post-harvest loss by providing information on production, physiological changes, pre- and post-harvest storage requirements, storage problems and nutrient management systems in relation to plant health and production, environmental protection in agriculture and in post-harvest and processing aspects. The book is intended to stimulate researchers and students to identify and solve problems related to crop quality, plant nutrition and post-harvest quality performance in a wide range of horticultural crops grown in varied conditions in different parts of the world.
