"Medicinal and aromatic crops are newly-domesticated crops, and the information available about their cultivation aspects is very scarce. This book provides comprehensive information on the origin, distribution, description of the plant, species and varieties, soil, climate, propagation, planting, nutrition, water and weed management, plant protection, harvesting and yield and analytical procedures for the active ingredients (wherever available) for 84 commercially important medicinal and aromatic crops."
