Book Description :

Organic Farm Management: Agronomic Soil Management Practices is the first book to focus on the integrated interactions between soil-plant-microbe-environment elements in light of the ecosystem function. There are many concerns about how long farming will continue using current conventional methods as continued chemical use degrades the soil and the environment. Addressing the question "Under what circumstances does information on nutrient management for sustainability add to the predictive power of agro-ecosystem processes?”, this book explores critical biogeochemical cycles, and their potential responses to current and impending environmental change as well as highlighting the factors that determine this nexus in space and time for sustainable crop production. In the simplest terms, organic growing or farming is based on maintaining a living soil with a diverse population of micro and macro soil organisms. Organic matter (OM) is maintained in the soil through the addition of compost, animal manure, and green manures and the avoidance of excess mechanization. Another common aspect of OF is growing plants without synthetic fertilizers or pest control chemicals. This approach usually includes the desire for organic agriculture to be economically, environmentally and socially sustainable and based on integrated production systems. OF is both challenging and exciting, as its practice of "feeding the soil, not the plant” provides opportunity to better understand why some growing methods might be preferred over others. This book covers all these wider aspects and explains sustainable nutrient management under OF or organic agriculture. It focuses on the role of nutrient management in sustaining the ecosystems globally, including relevant issues such as remediation of polluted soils; conservation practices; degradation of pollutants; biofertilizers; and biopesticides to integration of mineral fertilization in sustainable crop production system, reclamation of problematic soils, and combating climate change. Presents a comprehensive overview of recent advances and new developments in the field OF research within a relevant theoretical framework Highlights the scope of the inexpensive and improved management practices Focuses on the role of nutrient management in sustaining the ecosystems

Book Description :

This book is an account of introduction, principles, different practices, recent advances related to organic farming. A comprehensive reviews on benefits and limitations of organic farming as carried out by various research workers have been discussed in detail. The biomass energy is having great potential in the scenario of scarcity of energy. Soil organic matter is an important factor in restoring soil fertility. An increase in the soil fertility has a direct relationship with socioeconomic conditions of farmers, vegetable growers and orchardists. A healthy soil is always responsible for production of quality grains and fruits hence there is an urgent need to maintain for management of soil health. Organic produce are healthier and tasty than inorganic foods. However, the decline in yield has been noticed and recorded various research workers. The book "Organic Farming: Concepts, Applications and Advances" has been written in concise form.

Book Description :

Presenting an overwhelming argument for replacing modern farming methods with organic techniques, this book explores the history, politics, and practicalities of organic farming. Adrian Myers shows how the current techniques of agriculture and horticulture based on chemical fertilizers, which inevitably bring about the deterioration of soil life, cannot provide a long-term sustainable future for humankind. "Organic Futures" shows what we can learn from 4,000 years of sustainable organic agriculture in the Far East and explains how organic farming is different from conventional agriculture. It demonstrates the damaging effects of conventional farming and discusses the importance of maintaining soil fertility. Presenting a vision of an organic future, the book also documents inspiring developments in both the West and the Third World.
