The rapid change in the agro-ecosystem leaves a snag of the establishment of harmony in the discord of the disturbed ecosystem due to the wide usage of chemical pesticides, fertilizers and synthetic plant growth regulators. The long-term effects were overlooked; hence, the boom of one-time became a bane for the global ecosystem degradation. In the present context, it has become indispensable to look for sustainable crop protection, management approaches in the realm of climate change in imperative and the book is an effort in this direction.

India, however, better adapt to climate change by enhancing investments in development programmes in sectors vulnerable to climate change, particularly agriculture, water resources, Himalayan region, coastal regions, health and disaster management. Mitigation of adverse effects of climate change is only possible through the development of climate-resilient IPM technology for sustainable management of pests in the future.

There are 19 well-researched and thought-provoking chapters discussing the effect of climate change on crops through the lens of pests, diseases and nematodes. This book not only provides the reference, but also serves as a guide and inspiration for future research into the realm of modern agriculture with changing climates in India. The scientists, teachers, students, scholars, administrators, and policy makers dealing with crop protection and management in relation to climate will find this book very useful and informative.
