This book includes 20 different chapters, where the authors have addressed various aspects of the cultivation, taxonomy, socio-economic importance and breeding and development as applied to neglected and underutilized crops. While they sound like a breed that can be obtained through say, genetically modified crops, these future smart foods are actually our traditional crops—chino, kagunu, millet, colocasia, local beans, local chillies and so on—crops that were often neglected and underutilised.

Conceived as a project by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Neglected crops: from a different perspective was copublished with the Botanical Garden of Córdoba, Spain.

Nowadays, these plants also play a crucial role in modern medicine. The neglected crops categorised as ‘minor crops’ have lesser importance globally in terms of production and market value. They could become an excellent source for useful gene source. Several factors such as physical appearance, taste, nutritional properties, cultivation methods, processing qualities, economic gains, cturer: Springer.
