Agricultural Nitrogen Use And Its Environmental Implications by Y.P. Abrol, N. Raghuram & M.S. Sachdev
Book Summary:

Nitrogen fertilizers are the inescapable necessity to enhance agricultural production and to sustain food security. However, their inefficient use accrues from inherent limitations of the crop plants as well as the manner in which N fertilizers are formulated, applied and managed. Excessive accumulation of N in the environment leads to soil acidification, pollution of groundwater and eutrophication of surface water, posing a public health problem as well as ecosystem imbalance. Moreover, the ozone layer depletion and greenhouse effects of NOx gases have global implications. Agricultural Nitrogen Use: Environmental Implications provides a comprehensive, interdisciplinary description of problems related to the efficient use of nitrogen in agriculture, in the overall context of the nitrogen cycle, its environmental and human health implications, as well as various approaches to improve N use efficiency.


Audience of the Book :
 This book will be useful for all interested in strategies for rational and effective nitrogen use and in addressing the issues related to environmental degradation.
 
Key Features:

The main features of the book are as follows:

1. Provides a comprehensive description of the problems of N use efficiency in Indian agriculture, with a special reference to reactive N.

2. Topics vary from plant molecular biology to agronomic management, and include issues related to the role of legumes in nitrogen nutrition, groundwater and air pollution, and human health.

3.Each chapter begins with a summary and concludes the topic at the end.
