Intensive Cropping: Efficient Use of Water, Nutrients, and Tillage is a compilation of current information on the interdependence of and synergies among water, nutrients, and energy in regard to increasing crop performance. This book explains the need for intensive cropping and explores the technologies and practices necessary for proper management of water, nutrients, and energy.

This essential guide is a state-of-the-art account of the concepts and practices concerning the integrated use of water, nutrients, and energy in intensive cropping. Intensive Cropping combines basic and applied aspects of soil-water, nutrients, and energy management to help you optimize your crop yields and maximize the efficiency of intensively farmed regions.

In Intensive Cropping, you will explore the need for extreme farming and related concerns and concepts, including:

  • reducing runoff, deep seepage, and evaporation losses
  • supplementing irrigation with surface and ground water
  • understanding the process of water uptake and its effects on root dynamics and water use
  • reducing leaching, erosion, and gasseus losses in your fields
  • using combinations of organic manures, crop residues, chemical fertilizers, and biofertilizers for soil maintenance
  • implementing conventional and emerging tillage systems, such as conservation tillage for improving soil quality
  • examining case studies of contrasting edaphic requirements of rice-wheat systems

    Intensive Cropping brings you up-to-date on recent advances in the field, supported by relevant experimental observations on environmentally safe and effective ways to increase crop performance. By examining this new research on increasing crop production, you will be able to successfully increase crop yields in various climates and support the growing global demand for such resources.
