The book entitled "Fruit production: problems and solutions" deals exclusively with problems of fruit production and their possible remedial measures. It is a comprehensive book, written in a simple, understandable language and in a lucid manner. It has numerous photographs and figures to make it much more explanatory. It contains 33 chapter, spread over in six sections, such as, Common problems of fruits (unfruitfulness; alternate bearing, fruit cracking, fruit drop, non-availability of genuine planting material, mismatch harvests etc.), Crop specific chronic problems (mango malformation, citrus granulation, guava wilt, coconut wilt, apple scab etc.), Physiological disorders, Biotic stresses (insect-pests, diseases, nematodes, birds, weeds etc.), Abiotic stresses (salinity, frost, water excess or stress etc.) and Miscellaneous problems. It is hoped that this book would be of practical use to the under-graduate (UG) and post-graduate (PG) students, farmers, teachers, researchers, extension workers and fruit growers
