Vegetable crops have high economic value and high demand as they are the rich sources of vitamins, minerals and have high nutritional value for human health. The present paper gives a concise review of researches undertaken by R.K. Maiti and his team for more than a decade. The review paper considers comprehensive review on various aspects of vegetable crops starting from botany, physiology, biotechnology of major vegetable crops including pre-harvest and post-harvest technology, development of novel strategy and techniques for evaluation of crop cultivars for tolerance to abiotic stresses such as salinity, drought with highly satisfactory results in the farmer fields. The authors urge the necessity to evaluate and select vegetable crop cultivars for resistances to abiotic stresses under sustainable agriculture in the farmer fields.
