Horticulture in Cold Arid Himalayas provides an insight about the scope and perspectives of horticulture in fragile, inaccessible and harsh cold desert environment with special emphasis on fruits, vegetables, floriculture, forestry, medicinal plants, protected cultivation, post harvest technologies etc. supported by relevant references, tables, photographs and other illustrations. Status of land degradation, plant biodiversity, economic viability of horticulture raising, constraints and future strategies are some special features covered in the book.
