Kodoth Prabhakaran Nair, an agricultural scientist, has authored an electronic book The Agronomy and Economy of turmeric and ginger.

Commissioned by the London-based science publisher Elsevier International, the book traces the history, origin, production, economy, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical benefits of the two spice crops.

“A few years ago the Indian Government had to fight a patent issue on turmeric. The US authorities had taken a decision in favour of India. This issue made headlines globally and drew the world’s attention to Indian turmeric and its invaluable medicinal qualities. This triggered me to write the book,” Prabhakaran Nair told Business Line in an e-mail communication.

The 500-page e-book contains 27 chapters.
