Advances in Organic Farming

Agronomic Soil Management Practices

Vijay Singh Meena (Redaktør) ; Sunita Kumari Meena (Redaktør) ; Amitava Rakshit (Redaktør) ; Johnson Stanley (Redaktør) ; Srinivasa Rao (Redaktør)

Advances in Organic Farming: Agronomic Soil Management Practices focuses on the integrated interactions between soil-plant-microbe-environment elements in a functioning ecosystem. It explains sustainable nutrient management under organic farming and agriculture, with chapters focusing on the role of nutrient management in sustaining global ecosystems, the remediation of polluted soils, conservation practices, degradation of pollutants, biofertilizers and biopesticides, critical biogeochemical cycles, potential responses for current and impending environmental change, and other critical factors.

Advances in Organic Farming: Agronomic Soil Management Practices focuses on the integrated interactions between soil-plant-microbe-environment elements in a functioning ecosystem.

Organic farming is both challenging and exciting, as its practice of “feeding the soil, not the plant” provides opportunity to better understand why some growing methods are preferred over others.

In the simplest terms, organic growing 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, green manures and the avoidance of excess mechanization.

Vijay Singh Meena is Project Coordinator, Borlaug Institute for South Asia, and has worked in soil aggregation, carbon management index and carbon and nitrogen sequestration potential under climate resilient agriculture. He identified carbon management index as the key indicator to measure soil degradation in different agro-ecosystems. He also edited seven Springer books and three Elsevier books on microbes, organic farming and agricultural sustainability. He has received several scholarship and awards during his academic and professional career. Sunita Kumari Meena is Assistant Professor (Soil Science) at the Dr. Rajendra Prasad Central Agricultural University, Pusa-Samastipur (Bihar), India. She served as a research scholar at both Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi and at ICAR-Indian Agricultural Research Institute, New Delhi. She has received several fellowships and awards based on her work in soil science. She has published in the Journal of Cleaner Production, Ecological Engineering, Scientia Horticulturae, Environmental Science and Pollution Research and Biocatalysis and Agricultural Biotechnology as well as contributing chapters to books. Amitava Rakshit is a faculty member of the Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry at the Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University. His research areas include nutrient use efficiency, simulations modelling, organic farming, integrated nutrient management, and bioremediation. His consulting capabilities are composting techniques, soil health management, and input quality control. He is currently the Chief Editor of the International Journal of Agriculture Environment and Biotechnology. He is a member of the Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition of FAO, Rome, and the Commission on Ecosystem Management of International Union for Conservation of Nature. Dr. Stanley was born on 8th October, 1980 at Nagercoil, Tamil Nadu, India. He is graduated in Agriculture from Agricultural College and Research Institute, Killikulam and did his M.Sc and Ph.D in Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore. He joined Agricultural Research Service (ARS 2005) of Indian Council of Agricultural Research, New Delhi in 2008 and currently working as Senior Scientist (Agricultural Entomology) in ICAR-VPKAS, Almora, Uttarakhand.
He is working on the integrated management of agricultural pests especially using bioagents and pheromones. He is also working on pesticide toxicity to non-target organisms i.e, biocontrol agents and other beneficial insects/ organisms. He is also working on pollinator management. He has successfully completed four research projects and five projects are currently being handled including projects of FAO, DST, NASF etc. He has published more than 40 research papers, 3 books and 6 book chapters. He has filed three patents and two of his technologies are commercialized for mass production and use. Born in Anigandlapadu, Krishna district of Andhra Pradesh on 4 October 1965.
