Vegetables are one of the good sources of vitamins and minerals and play an important role in ensuring food and nutritional security. Vegetables are highly perishable and very sensitive to unpredictable climatic changes. Climate change has an adverse impact on productivity and quality besides aggravate the environmental stress on vegetable crops. Environmental stresses like increasing temperature, reduced irrigation water availability, flooding and salinity are thought to be the major limiting factors in enhancing vegetable productivity. Though the climate vagaries are beyond human control, its intensity and extreme impact of environmental stress on vegetable crops can be reduced to some extent and enhance the production as well, if the integrated approaches like cultural management practices including nutrient and tillage residue management, water management, mulching, improved pest management, and breeding approaches like development of genotypes tolerant to high temperature, salinity, moisture stress are resorted.

Keywords: Vegetable production, Climate change, Salinity, Drought.
