Description

Aromatic Plants yielding essential oils are an important group of plants to meet the challenges of the 21st century for Socio-economic Development, Biodiversity Maintenance and environmental / Ecological Conservation. The ethos behind this should be well understood by Policy makers, entrepreneurs and all other user groups including the farmers, and village and forest dwellers. Significance of growing aromatic plants is immense for environment at no extra cost or effort.

In addition assured markets of essentials oils for pharmaceuticals, aroma therapy, cosmetics, perfumery and large number of other industries from large scale plantations offers financial returns handsomely to entrepreneurs. In contrast to medicinal plants yielding alkaloids etc., as active principles, all the aromatic plants yielding essential oils provide such active principles which do not pose problems in their disposal and buyers crisply purchase them from growers and distillers like hot cake owing to their variety of uses and comparatively larger shelf life.

This book will go a long way to make it useful to variety of groups of people referred above for forging their way ahead in their enterprises based on aromatic plants without any risk and hesitation with an assured success.
