Hydroponics is defined as the science of growing plants in the absence of soil by providing them with chemical solutions containing artificial forms of nutrients, which the plants generally obtain from the soil. Growing wheat hydroponically for plant breeding purposes may hold emergence, yield and seed quality advantages compared to traditional planting methods. It can be concluded that the hydroponic system is more effective than pots with soil in terms of emergence and yield, to grow wheat in the greenhouse.

Many of the decisions that we make during orchard management can greatly influence the shelf life and quality of fruits Thus, it is of utmost importance to consider the pre harvest factors that allow us to maximize the shelf life of fruits in marketing chain. These factors encompass production and management decisions concerning nutrition management, variety selection, irrigation and pest management.

Climate change refers to any change in climate over time, whether due to natural variability or as a result of human activity. But according to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), climate change refers to a change of climate that is attributed directly or indirectly to human activity; the composition of the global atmosphere is altered, in addition to natural climate variability observed over comparable time periods.

The current state of knowledge highlights the need for a more comprehensive, multispecies approach to ecosystem-level analyses in order to better track and forecast changing marine ecosystems. Research needs span laboratory and field process studies, manipulative experiments, observational networks, historical data synthesis, and modeling from small-scale process simulations to large-scale coupled biophysical models. Especially important is the establishment of long-term, biologically oriented, and ecosystem-based observational systems

The enhancement of the income of small and marginal farmers is thus important for the agricultural growth, poverty reduction, food and livelihood security in India. To achieve this factors which can improve productivity and profitability like efficient resource management, canopy management, protected cultivation, value addition and market linkages are need to be adopted.

Plants emit a substantial portion of their fixed carbon back into the atmosphere in the form of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This process costs plants a large portion of fixed energy that could otherwise be allocated for growth, development and reproduction and thus volatiles have been implicated in a range of ecological functions. Additionally, volatile emission also serves a role in a range of ecological functions including pollinator attraction, plant–pathogen and plant–plant interactions. Volatiles also function as direct defences by acting as feeding deterrents.

Many developing countries have achieved a remarkable improvement in nutrition status in the past decades. However, the prevalence of under nutrition remains a serious problem. At the same time, the prevalence of obesity is increasing substantially, and in some countries, it has approached that of developed countries. The increased life expectancy, urbanization, and unhealthy lifestyle characterized by a shift towards a sedentary lifestyle are considered the main drivers of epidemiological transition
