Rainfed agriculture is gaining importance throughout the globe in view of its inherent problem of low or sparse rainfall which is accentuated further by climate change. To sustain agriculture and other related activities, we need to know more about the soils and other natural resources including plants, insects and other biological elements which are experiencing climatic stress due to global warming. On the basis of expertise by a team of leading scientists from national and international organizations, the 16 chapters of this book discuss the issues and priorities for agricultural and related managements. Covering areas such as north-eastern Himalayas, semi-arid tropics, eastern and north-eastern India and the Indo-Gangetic Plains with an overall global scenario of the rainfed agriculture, this book will be necessary for both the academics and policy makers in understanding natural resources and their management for sustainable agriculture.
