Towards a sustainable agriculture: An intervention tool for eco-friendly approach in modern era contains many sustainable issues which have been discussed thoroughly. It explores the vital role of many national and international issues pertaining to soil tillage, watershed, organic farming, integrated nutrient management (INM) system, biofertilizer, vermicomposting, earthworms-role in sustainable agriculture, checking crop pests naturally-noble way to sustain agriculture, role of rural women, farm worm, agroforestry, management of waste lands.
The book provides new alternatives to sustain productivity of Jhum Cultivation - myths and reality. Importance of micronutrients and application of extension system approach for sustaining food grain production have also been dealt in separate chapters. Secondly this book will prove a boon for the scientists, extension personnels, teachers and students, who are involved in conducting applied and basic research in various aspects of agricultural production on sustainable basis.
