Sustainable Agriculture For food, Bio-Energy and Livelihood Security by Singh DP And Bhale MS
Book Summary:
The UN Millennium Goals towards Sustainable Development includes food, bioenergy and livelihood as integral components and the most vital concern of our planet Earth. Issues like production and supply of food for caloric and nutritional security for ever increasing population, biomass production for biofuels to meet energy needs of industry and households and generation of employment opportunities, both on farm and off farm for livelihood security have been focusing attention of policy planners and researchers globally. Also land use for agriculture without jeopardizing natural resource base poses a formidable challenge to the agricultural scientists to devise appropriate agriculture production technology to ensure sustainability of production systems and to harness favourable linkages among productivity-profitability and sustainability. Undoubtedly the production advantages of improved agri-technology generated during last five decades have been realized mainly in assured input favourable environments. However this has led to second generation problems like dwindling natural resource base, declining factor productivity, salinization and other soil health factors due to excessive use of agrochemicals and irrigation. Moreover much remains to be done to enhance crop production in stress prone fragile environments, both abiotic and biotic. These problems are further aggravated by global climate change due to global warming whereby cooler regions may become hotter and wetter regions may become drier and vice versa. This intermittent change in agri-ecology would necessitate infusing resilience in crops using genetic options and better agronomic management for damage control.
