About this eBook

Preface Agriculture is the main enterprise for more than 70 per cent of Indian population. With diverse climatic conditions, all most all crops are grown extensively throughout India. Green and yellow revolution has changed the status of Indian Agriculture from begging bowl to one of the exporter. But to feed growing population 1.8 per cent and to enhance crop productivity we have to achieve an annual growth rate of 4.5 per cent, inspite of declining use of inputs and rapidly deteriorating natural resources. Hi-tech agriculture is the only way to meet out these challenges. Growth in Agriculture in terms of increased sustainable productivity has to come from location specific, low input, eco-friendly and demand oriented techniques. Lot of research work has been carried out in different projects in different parts of India, but there is lack of up-to-date and compiled information to be useful for under graduate and postgraduate students, research workers and for progressive farmers. This publication has been brought out with an objective of collecting information regarding location specific research and recommended technologies for harvesting high productivity on sustainable basis. To make this publication more informative and relevant, chapters on different crops have been invited from scientist working in the field or have a vast experience. Efforts have been made to present each chapter in an useful way and readable manner for quick understanding. I sincerely express my gratitude to all authors and co-authors of chapters for contributing up-to-date, informative and comprehensive script without which it would be very difficult to complete this task. I take this opportunity to express gratitude to Dr. S. S. Manohar, Dean, College of Agriculture, Bikaner for constant encouragement and guidance to get this task completed. Sh. S. K. Sharma, Assistant Professor, Agronomy, College of Agriculture, Bikaner deserve special thanks for giving useful suggestions in improving quality of this publication. Thanks are also extended to Dr. S. S. Purohit, Head, Department of Botany, Dungar College, Bikaner and Dr. Rajesh Sharma, Asstt. Prof., Department of Agriculture Economics, College of Agriculture, Bikaner for exerting encouraging attitude and for giving constructive suggestions. Mr. Updesh Purohit M s Agrobios, Jodhpur deserves special mention for necessary assistance and publishing this manuscript with in short span. My father Th. Anoop Singh Rathore, mother Smt. Sada Kanwar, wife Smt. Kamlesh and son Jitendra, daughter Sonu, who provided required environment at home and constant encouragement to complete this work, deserves very special appreciation.
