The present book "Stress Agronomy" is aimed to address the past, present issues together with expected changes in soils and climate in future, The thrust is aimed to meet the challenges through evolution and adoption of new technologies in agriculture sector to facilitate the coming generations to avail a pollution free life, The information gathered here may be an eye opening for agriculturists, environmentalists, climatologists, planners and policy makers to take knowledge of present day burning issues of atmospheric, terrestrial, oceanic changes and global warming due to emission of poisonous gases on one hand and heavy metal toxicity in soil and air on the other. Hence, the scientist community and policy makers have to bring out balance between human population and their requirement without extreme exploitation of the natural resources for a sustainable eco-friendly system. If, not, global warming is a worth warning which may prove to be a global harming due to possible change in bio-planet to a non-living one. This book will serve as valuable text cum reference book to the students and researchers of agricultural universities.
