Title Review

One of the highest and driest inhabited places on the earth—the Trans-Himalayan region has very harsh climatic conditions. The men, animals and plants of the region, thus face several biotic and abiotic stresses. In the said context, the scientists working at Defence Institute of High Altitude Research (DIHAR), Govt. of India, have developed various agro-animal technologies to improve livelihood and living conditions in this difficult terrain. Comprising over a score of specially invited chapters, this book compiles unique scientific information on high altitude agro-animal technologies while documenting the past and present research activities of DIHAR. The chapters of the book deal with various subjects ranging from vegetable science to seed production, post-harvest management, soil health, dairy farming, fodder production, poultry farming, ruminant husbandry, etc. All those concerned with the current and future challenges of the cold arid zones for achieving sustainable agriculture and livestock production, will find the book highly useful.
