This book has comprehensive coverage and advances in agriculture for sustainable development and is expected to provide valuable sources for scholars and researchers, as well as serve as a guide book to the farmer’s community and development agencies. The book is organized into 18 chapters, which include advances in production technologies of crops e.g. rice, wheat, barley, maize, pearl millet, pulses and oilseeds; sugarcane; medicinal and aromatic plants; vegetable crops; fodder crops; resource conservation technologies; management of degraded and sodic lands; soil biodiversity; farm mechanization, etc. The text is illustrated with tables, figures and photographs to bring out the significant findings. The book provides cutting-edge scientific knowledge as well as solid background information that are accessible for those who have a strong interest in agricultural research and development and want to learn more on the challenges facing the global agricultural production systems.
Note: T&F does not sell or distribute the Hardback in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. This title is co-published with New India Publishing Agency.
