In India, we share 4.2% of the potable water (of 1% total potable water on earth) which signifies a stringent competition for its uses in agricultural, domestic, industrial and municipality purposes. Therefore, water is a commodity and its safe use and quality assurance is valuable for all stakeholders. Organic/ Inorganic pollutants diminished the quality of water, hence its safe use for different purposes. In agriculture and food industry, the entry of pollutants in food chain will pose threats to human and livestock heath. Therefore, removal of these pollutants is utmost imperative and essential. Removal of pollutants using physical, chemical, microbial & other biological methods offers some promise but with many limitations. In this sequel, a new technology generated by a specially designed reactor named as electrolyzed water based on electrolysis of saline water, also known as alkaline water have been developed.

"Speech of Dr. Wolde-Giorgis"
As per FAO, Statistic, the world population will be around 8 billion people by 2025. Currently about 850 million people
suffer from hunger and about 2 billion children suffer from malnutrition and micronutrient deficiency. India ranks number 1 in terms of pre-term birth as 23% pre-term born infants are in India.
Human health is determined by genetic, epigenetic, environmental, utritional and psychological factors. Women health is most critical during times of pregnancy Genotype of an individual mothers
determines the phenotype of the foetus and the neonates through its interaction with nutrition and medication during pregnancy.
On behalf of my Association and myself I’m sending you my greetings to America India Australia from a small town in Germany called Göttingen. Associated to our association we run a student hostel and by the name of Mahatma Gandhi.

Global warming has affected crop production scenario in terms of yields and geographical area for successful crop production. It has led to shifts in crop communities. Ambient Temperature prevailing at any location is key determinant factor for survival, adaptation and performance of various crops. Environmental stresses caused by low and high temperature are most apparent at specific locations worldwide. Abiotic stresses, depending on location and local climatic conditions can cause 15 to 20% or even higher reduction in crop yield due to reduction in one or the other yield building traits like post maturity, hampered photosynthesis, lower germination, poor plant growth and development etc. traditional crop improvement methods based on recombination breeding have paid dividends in breeding tolerant varieties to low and high temperature stresses.

Climate change effects on crop yields are witnessed globally. Abiotic stresses caused by drought and salinity are most apparent at specific locations worldwide. Abiotic stresses, depending on location and local climatic conditions can cause 15 to 20% or even higher reduction in crop yield due to reduction in one or the other yield building traits like post maturity, hampered photosynthesis, lower germination, poor plant growth and development etc. Conventional plant breeding has paid dividends in breeding tolerant varieties to specific abiotic stresses. However, under global climate change conditions, one or more abiotic stresses occur simultaneously and their adverse effects are mutually exclusive.
Under such situations prudent biotechnologies are needed to infuse resilience in genotypes to adapt better to abiotic stresses with a higher yield.Various biotechnological tools have been developed such as tissue culture, genomics and transgenics. Use of these technologies is warranted and the choice of appropriate technologies will depend on pattern of genetic variability, gene flow from one species to another, crossing barriers and source of genes for crop tolerance to abiotic stresses.

The world population is likely to grow to 8 billion by 2025 and stabilize at 10 billion by 2050. The increase in population is mainly in developing countries where food, environmental, and health problems are apparent on account of lack of resources.
In many countries where the green revolution led quantum jump in yield has been realized are also witnessing grey patches due to excessive use of inputs and agrochemicals, over-mining of nutrients, secondary salinization, etc. In order to have sustainably high production possessing adequate nutritional value for teaming millions every year, the present agrotechnology has to be revisited and customized for locational specific needs.
Global climate change due to rise in temperature, industrial effluents, emissions from motor vehicles and chimneys, and agricultural and e-waste has added to complexities in all spheres of life mainly agricultural biodiversity, ...
