Solanum melongena, commonly known as eggplant or brinjal, is a popular vegetable that is high in fiber and rich in vitamins and minerals. It is an essential source of income for small and marginal farmers in India and around the world. Eggplant is a good source of fiber, copper, manganese, B-6 and thiamine, and can help to lower one’s risk of heart disease and control blood sugar. This book covers various aspects of eggplant, ranging from management of its production and cultivation, including details about the threat of diseases and parasites to this crop, to its economic, nutritional and medicinal impact.
