About this eBook

PREFACE Agriculture holds the key to sustainable food and livelihood security for over 70 per cent of our population. The three fold increase in the population has resulted in an over exploitation of our natural resources, causing ecological and agricultural imbalances. However, through concerted scientific efforts over the past few decades,
significant achievements have taken place in Indian
agriculture on all fronts, contributing significantly towards food security, selfsufficiency and sustainability. This book gives coverage to almost all the important technologies required for food security and sustainable agriculture in the country. Each chapter has been written by the scientists having first hand knowledge of the subject backed by many years of field experience. The book offers a comprehensive and coherent account of different fields of agriculture in eighteen parts covering crop production, water management, post harvest technology and value addition, horticulture, animal production, farm mechanization, implications of WTO for India Agriculture, etc. We are sincerely thankful to Agrotech Publishing Academy, Udaipur for publishing this book. Suggestions for improvement of the present book received from teachers, scientists and planners will be gratefully acknowledged.
