By Ummed Singh, C S Praharaj, S S Singh, N P Singh

The chapters awarded during this publication ‘Biofortification of nutrition Crops’ depict how agricultural technological interventions have precise function in assuaging malnutrition. This booklet highlights the position of multidisciplinary techniques to manage up with the demanding situations of micronutrient malnutrition or hidden starvation that's an alarming public health and wellbeing factor in so much elements of the area together with India. during this endeavour, diversified biofortification techniques reminiscent of agronomic (or ferti-fortification), breeding, biotechnological, physiological, microbial and so on. has fulfilled their varied mandates of nutrient enrichment of foodstuff vegetation together with cereals and pulses. The contents of the publication proves that biofortified vegetation have enough power to nourish nutrient depleted soils, support bring up crop productiveness and supply dietary merits to crops, people and livestock.  The content material and caliber of data provided during this ebook will certainly supply a number of novel principles of improve innovations and may stimulate cutting edge recommendations and instructions among researchers and coverage makers within the box of biofortification. furthermore, the contributions provided within the booklet could be a great resource of history wisdom and technical knowledge to teach the readers approximately biofortification. The authors desire that the ebook entitled “Biofortification of meals Crops” would offer an appropriate platform in our collective efforts for a suitable discussion one of the scientists, researchers, marketers, coverage makers and farmers in decreasing the budding problems with malnutrition via novel techniques and capacity
