Description

Covering a wide array of topics on the status and challenges of organic farming, including production, nutrient management, plant protection, processing methods, organic production, policy issues, etc., in food crops, vegetable crops, and sugarcane, this new volume addresses how organic farming is an attractive option toward the reduction of toxic emissions produced from traditional agriculture and how it can help mitigate the deleterious effects on crops from climate change. With a focus primarily on India but with application elsewhere in the agricultural world, the volume looks at organic crop production in conjunction with ensuring rural livelihood security, maintaining and enhancing soil health, sugarcane productivity and sugar industry by-products, nutritional management in system-based organic farming, the management of pests in organic farming, the use of vermiculture as an important method for organic farming, and much more. The volume also looks at the issues and challenges in the marketing of organic produce.
