In spite of all the efforts, the population of India is increasing day by day. Many of the cultivable lands have been turned in erecting buildings, highways. This resulted in shortage of food grains against increasing number of consumers, the area of lands being the same, rather lesser that before. Also there is a limit of increasing production and productivity of food material by using manures and fertilizers. If we take up this problem by supplementing or supplanting with fruits and vegetables, there is no reason why one must feel hungry. Further we are passing our days in the era of environmental pollution even in Delhi, Allahabad, Maharashtra and other states. Use of polythene, throwing garbage here and there, burning thse along road sides, smoking, drinking, chewing tobacco, gutka, dusty roads and foot paths, smoke and poisonous gases emitted by factories, tempos and buses make the environment polluted. Water pollution, Noise pollution, ripening of fruits by use of calcium carbide-all these are health hazards. Efforts have been made to deal all these in the book “Horticulture and Environment.Printed Pages: 302.
