Guar In India
Central Arid Zone Research Institute, Jodhpur
Guar in recent years has achieved status of an industrial crop due to water soluble natural polymer galactomannan gum, used for versatile industrial purposes. The crop has great scope as foreign exchange earner and guar gum worth Rs. 1000/- crores may be annually exported. It is, therefore, in national interest that production of guar and it's gum are sustained under the prevailing rainfed situations.
Technically the production of guar would be sustained if latest available know-how is compiled and made available to the intended consumers, growers and exporters. It would expose bottlenecks in the technological advancements on their implementation on the one, and their effective utilization on the other. A compilation on the latest research and developmental aspects aiming at boosting grain production, export of gum and seed meal, is therefore, judiciously required.
Present book entitled ``Guar in India'' comprises 12 chapters contributed by the renound guar workers in their respective fields in India. The book chapters have been devoted to genetic improvement, agronomy, genetic resources, fodder aspects, microbiology, physiology, pathology, entomology, gum quality, industrial aspects and seed production of guar. The contents of the book are comprehensive and convenient which may prove useful in academic and applied context.
