PREFACE
The climate over the globe is under change and Asian region will not be immune to this change Agriculture that plays a pivotal role in food security , nutrition, livelihood and poverty alleviation, is likely to be hit hard on account of extreme weather events like drought, floods, heat, waves and severe storms. This is a serious challenge and has to be properly addressed and mitigated using climate smart approaches. Such approaches are expected to increase maintain productivity under changing climate, develop resilience to it and reduce the emission of greenhousegases GHGs . But, this requires in depth understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of current farming systems, projecting the potential effects of climate change on these systems and identifying practical and effective means that may increase resilience of these systems while minimizing GHG gas emissions. This book is a small effort that brings together some important aspects related to climate change and natural resource management. The chapter of this book encompass applications of various crop growth models in climate change assessments, production management and seasonal climate forecasting, remote sensing in crop acreage estimation indirect effects of elevated CO2 on soil processes. This volume also covers the mechanisms of soil carbon sequestration and stabilization, effects of carbon on soil aggregate stability, conservation agriculture and biochar in climate mitigation, diversity and response of soil microbes to climate change, improving water productivity and engineering interventions in conservation agriculture the context of climate change. Notwithstanding with larger efforts made at global level, the present book addresses the issues of climate change more specific to agriculture of the country and validation of various crop growth models to Indian condition. It is of utmost importance to validate the models at regional level and develop region specific climate smart technologies to meet the impacts of climate change. I congratulate the editor and his team to bring this volume to the scientific community and the students working on similar pursuits. R. S. Chaudhary HoD, Division of Soil Physics IISS, Bhopal

ABOUT THE BOOK
Recently, the profitable crop production with the simultaneous maintenance of quality of the environment has become an important issue that agricultural scientists and producers must address. They are required to formulate strategies for optimizing the profitability of crop production while maintaining soil quality and minimizing environmental degradation. Therefore, the management of natural resources has gained attention in context of climate change. Solutions to this new challenge require consideration of how numerous components interact to effect plant growth. To achieve this goal, future agricultural research will require considerably more effort and resources than present research activity. The natural resource management is an important aspect in
