Current Population of India is estimated to be more than 1.27 billion. India is the most densely populated country in the world after China but it would be at the top position within 2040 years. It would be very difficult to feed such a huge population in the future. In this context knowledge of agricultural botany will be useful to increase the production. Dr. V. R. Patil,
