Underexploited Spice Crops : Present Status, Agrotechnology, and Future Research Directions, Hardback Book


Spices provide our food with nutraceutical value rather than actual nutrition.

But apart from the popular and major spices, there are several other spices, which, in spite of their enormous contribution to human health, remain underexploited or underutilized.

This new volume, Underexploited Spice Crops: Present Status, Agrotechnology, and Future Research Directions, is a valuable compilation of agrotechniques coupled with background information, research works, and scientific discussions on these spices.

It will include in-depth narration on underexploited spice crops as products in influencing present-day the global export market and the renewed interest in these crops throughout the world.

The volume deals with the scientific approach of growing underexploited spices with the intention of popularizing them.

Separate chapters on the importance of each spice, methods of growing and harvesting, and recent research from around the world along with future strategies are covered.
