About this eBook

PREFACE The ultimate aim of sustainable agriculture is to enhance food production by maintaining the natural resource base. This should be achieved in accordance with the carrying capacity of the supporting agro-ecological system s for the ever increasing human and animal population all over the world. In many parts of the world arable lands, the depletion of the natural resource base has already become apparent, including soil degradation due to over mining of nutrients, imbalanced fertilization, salinity due to excessive irrigation, water deficits and environmental pollution. Further, global warming, the uncertainty in rainfall perpetual droughts and floods of varying intensities etc. affect crop production and land use. Additionally crop production on arable lands for bio-energy will lead to conflict until land resources are judiciously used. Increasing urbanization, the creation of special economic zones, government policies regarding land ownership, small holders priorities and other socio-economic factors would determine land use as well as crop diversification. Crop productivity is predominantly determined by the production environment, crop genotype and their interaction. In order to sustain food and bio-energy supplies it is important to improve the inherent potential of crops for increased use efficiency of natural and applied inputs, to increase stress tolerance, to harness plant microbe interactions, to use improved agrotechnology and appropriate land use patterns for sustainable development. This book entitled Crop Science and Land Use for Food and BioEnergy is based on the research findings prepared for and or presented at the International Seminar on Land Resources and Land Use Options Challenges for Food Security and Sustainable Development. It was organised by the International Foundation for Sustainable Development in Africa and Asia IFSDAA in collaboration with the African Asian Studies Promotion Association AASF , Goettingen, Germany.from July 14 to 16, 2009. This book covers a wide range of topics like crop sciences and crop improvement, plant microbe interactions, resource management, bio-energy, sustainable development and socio economic aspects of land use and other natural resources that can compliment the objectives of sustainable land use. The editors express their sincere gratitude to the authors who have contributed their papers for publication They also thank Prof. Brigitta Benzing, President of Afrikanisch-Asiatische Studienf rderung AASF Vice
