Author(s):

Sukhjinder Singh, Nivedita Gupta and Amit Saurabh

Abstract:
Vegetables play an important role in combating various health disorders like cancer, Heart disease, High blood pressure, High cholesterol, Diabetes and prostrate problems etc. The major problem in human beings is caused by nutritional deficiency of Vitamin A, calories, Iron, Protein, Iodine, Vitamin- C, Vitamin-B, and calcium. Crops diversification is intended to give a wider choice in the production of variety of crops in a given area so as to increase production and also expand production related activities. In vegetable crops there exists a great genetic diversity to adapt themselves under vagaries of environments, (abiotic and biotic stresses). Then only the society will continue to benefit from the vital contribution that vegetable breeding (plant breeding) offer, using both conventional and biotechnological tools, because improved varieties and hybrids of vegetables rich in nutrition and resistant to abiotic stress will ensure global food security in future.
