Material type: materialTypeLabelBookAnalytics: Show analyticsPublisher: India : Westville Publishing House, 2018Description: 272 pages.ISBN: 978-93-83491-88-9.Subject(s): Conservation agriculture | Agricultural Practices | Cropping systemsOnline resources: Access only for CIMMYT Staff In: Summary: Conservation agriculture (CA) benefits agro-ecosystems by improving soil health and preserving biodiversity. Facilitation of good agricultural practices viz. land preparation, crop establishment, water management and stress management etc. through conservation agriculture ensures environmental safety and resource savings. Agricultural production intensification through diversified cropping systems and integration of various enterprises under CA could offer economically viable options for more than 86% small farm holders of the country. The minimum soil disturbance due to controlled traffic promotes biological tillage. An established CA system could address the emerging issues of nutrient imbalance and reliance upon the external organic inputs. The principles of CA are universally applicable, however its implementation through the set of practices has to be standardized in diversified situation and cropping system perspective. Since, CA in India is still in its nascent stage, through this book, the authors have made an attempt to suggest the possible package for wide scale adoption of CA.
