About this eBook

PREFACE Farming Systems is not a short-term quick-fix, or a panacea for chronically problematic subsistence agriculture, and it is the desirable perspective in sustainable systems agriculture. This addresses to and requires multi-disciplinary, complexity and feed-back processes. This has got four behavioural characteristics of an agro-ecosystem, viz. productivity, stability, sustainability and equality or equity which have come repeatedly throughout the volumes. The book has been written as per the SAU s syllabus for the students. The author has written the book in 9 chapters with the inclusion of Systems Agriculture, Farming Systems in India, Concept for Farming System Research, Cropping Systems Research Nutrient Management, Sustainable Farming Systems Approach, Forests Forestry, Agroforestry, Sewage Farming, Other Farming Systems viz. Sericulture, Bio-diesel farming, Aquaculture, Pearl Culture, Mud Crab Culture, etc. Hope the book will augment some pertinent lessons in the overall Farming Systems Agriculture in India. The author is grateful to Prof. L.L. Somani and Geeta Somani for publication of the book, and to his wife Pushpa, Son Koustuv, nephew Diptayan and Sister Kalyani for their sustained inspiration for writing the same. Suggestions are invited for betterment of the book from all corners. Kolkata 700042
