Prabhakaran Nair has set a world record by being the only agricultural scientist to have been invited to contribute a chapter, for the fourth time in succession in less than 12 years, to advances in agronomy, the magnum opus of agricultural science, popularly known as the ‘Bible of Agricultural Science.’ The more than one-century old most prestigious book publication, brought out by California-based Elsevier and Academic Press, world’s number one publishers, invites the top most of the world’s agricultural scientists to contribute chapters dealing with various aspects of developments in global agriculture.

Nair’s chapter deals with the Agronomy and Economy of some of the most important economically important crops of the developing world. In July 2008, two of Nair’s books, one dealing with issues in national and international agriculture and another on cardamom- the Queen of Spices - were launched by Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, former President of India.
