About this Item

Concern about environmental safety and sustainability of land productivity is increasing among scientists, administrators and environmentalists. With the increasing population, it is also becoming clear that food security to the teeming millions will not be possible unless the available resources are efficiently utilized for increasing the productivity. The strategy adopted during the green revolution era cannot be valid anymore under the prevailing conditions. A new strategy of living with the nature and nurturing it for sustainable high productivity should be evolved. Though use of chemical inputs cannot be altogether avoided, their use in agriculture has to be rationalized. Organic agriculture shows us the way to effectively use the available natural resources for the benefit of the mankind. But, unfortunately there are a lot of misconceptions about organic agriculture. Though a large amount of information has been generated on various aspects of organic agriculture, they are scattered in literature. A compilation of the available information has been a felt need of students, teachers, research workers and administrators in agriculture. This book makes an attempt to present the available information on organic agriculture in a cogent and easily understandable manner. Though it is not exhaustive, which it is not meant to be, it is felt that book will a give an overview on the subject to the interested reader. A viewpoint on organic agriculture has been presented in the book, based on the experience of the authors. The book contains chapters on organic manures (including green manures), recycling of organic wastes, vermiculture, biofertilizers, organic methods of pest and weed management, integrated nutrient management, farming systems and case studies of organic farming. Selected literature is presented for further reading. It is hoped that the book will serve as a good reference source for those interested in organic agriculture. Contents: 1. Introduction 2. Concepts, Definitions and Components 3. Green Manuring : A Basic Component of Organic Farming 4. Biological Nitrogen Fixation 5. Application of Vermiculture Biotechnology 6.
