About the Book

This Book Cultivation and Utilization of Medicinal Plants and its companion volume Cultivation and Utilization of Aromatic Plants have their genesis in the book Cultivation and Utilization of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants, which was published by Regional Research Laboratory, Jammu in 1977. The basic structure of this original book consisted of papers contributed at the CUMAP symposium held by the Laboratory in 1976. To these were added some more papers to fill some gaps and thus to improve the utility of the 1977 edition. When the parent volume was rapidly exhausted soon after its publication, it was decided to publish an up-dated and revised version of the 1977 edition. So many more papers and chapters were added, that it became necessary to publish two separate companion volumes one on medicinal plants and the other on aromatic plants. The present volumes are the result of these efforts.

Some extracts from the reviews on 1977 edition published in Journals are given herewith.
