While nitrogenous fertilizers have significantly helped in increasing the yield of farm produce since the 1950s, the non-assimiliated nitrates which are carried by drainage water from soils are responsible for polluting the ground water. Moreover, nitrates that accumulate in harvestable vegetative organs are considered to be sources of potential danger for human health. It is therefore necessary to view sustained and enhanced agricultural yields in relation to the quality of the environment by increasing the efficiency of nitrogen assimilation by plants. This text contains pertinent information acquired over 20 years of research in the area of nitrogen metabolism and envisages new strategies to improve plant species of agronomic value by devising new techniques for growing them.
