  • Wide audience in both Biotechnology and Mechatronics fields together
  • Proposes novel Food production systems with both yield and nutraceutical value
  • Exposes basic sciences knowledge to develop Biosystems as potential Biofactories at industrial level (not only at laboratory level as in other books)
This book presents new food production systems (for plants and animals) involving agrochemicals that increase in a controlled manner the bioactives content, under greenhouse conditions. Moreover, conception and design of new instrumentation for precision agriculture and aquiculture contributing in food production is also highlighted in this book.
