This book provides a comprehensive and systematic overview of the recent developments in cotton production and processing, including a number of genetic approaches, such as GM cotton for pest resistance, which have been hotly debated in recent decades. In the era of climate change, cotton is facing diverse abiotic stresses such as salinity, drought, toxic metals and environmental pollutants. As such, scientists are developing stress-tolerant cultivars using agronomic, genetic and molecular approaches. Gathering papers on these developments, this timely book is a valuable resource for a wide audience, including plant scientists, agronomists, soil scientists, botanists, environmental scientists and extention workers.

Shakeel Ahmad received his Ph.D. from the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, Pakistan. He then completed his postdoctoral research at the University of Georgia, USA. He joined the Department of Agronomy, Bahauddin Zakariya University as a lecturer in October 2002, and was promoted to Professor in 2016. Prof. Ahmad’s teaching and research has focused on arable crops, especially crop modeling, climate change impact assessment and adaptation strategies. He received the Research Productivity Award (RPA) from the Pakistan Council for Science and Technology (PCST) in five consecutive years. Prof. Ahmad has published over 125 articles and 50 book chapters. And he is an editor and reviewer of several peer-reviewed, international journals. He is also an active life member of professional societies like the Pakistan Society of Agronomy and Pakistan Society of Botany. He has attended and presented papers and posters at national and international conferences in various countries.

Mirza Hasanuzzaman is a Professor of Agronomy at Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University in Dhaka. He received his Ph.D. on ‘Plant Stress Physiology and Antioxidant Metabolism’ from Ehime University, Japan. He completed his postdoctoral research at the Center of Molecular Biosciences, University of the Ryukyus, Japan. He was the recipient of the Australian Government’s Endeavour Research Fellowship for postdoctoral research at the University of Tasmania, Australia. Dr. Hasanuzzaman’s current work focuses on the physiological and molecular mechanisms of environmental stress tolerance. He has published over 80 articles in peer-reviewed journals, edited six books and written 30 book chapters. He is an editor and reviewer for more than 50 peer-reviewed, international journals, and he was a recipient of the Publons Peer Review Award in 2017 and 2018. He has received various for his outstanding contributions in research and education, including the World Academy of Science Young Scientist Award (2014).
