Series: Agricultural Research Updates
BISAC: TEC003000

This volume includes seven chapters that present recent updates in the field of agricultural research. Chapter One discusses the role of stress-responsive genes and protein kinases in Arabidopsis thaliana to overcome abiotic stress. Chapter Two provides an overview of the cultivation and production of almonds, as well as the characteristics and composition of the seed. Chapter Three describes the botanical and chemical properties as well as usage areas and health effects of the Stevia rebaudiana plant. Chapter Four argues that GMO-free RNAi crops can contribute immensely towards sustainable agriculture and global food security in the near future. Chapter Five analyzes the agricultural conditions of Kalapara Upazila’s five unions and eight mouzas. Chapter Six discusses eco-friendly management strategies of diseases and insect pests of mushrooms. Lastly, Chapter Seven studies fungi of the genus Fusarium and their impact as a pathogen on cereals in Russia.
