Perspectives in Agroecosystem
Indian agriculture has witnessed a remarkable progress during the past three decades. Apart from high yielding varieties and modern agricultural technologies, a number of agricultural inputs have played a key role in achieving the phenomenal increase in agricultural production. The present book provides the state of agroecosystem vis-a-vis environment and outlines future directions so that sustainable agriculture is achived without causing extensive damage to the fragile agroecosystem. This book is a unique compilation of 71 research articles of eminent scientists, which would prove useful to students, teachers and research scholars in various disciplines of agricultural science. It would be also helpful to administrators and policy planners to devise strategy to provide pollution-free environment and food to the teeming population.
