In the coming time people, will face changes in climate patterns that will contribute to severe water shartage or flooding, and rising temperatures that will cause shifts in crop growing seasons. Due to this there will be shortage of food and distribution of disease vectors, putting population at greater health and life risks. The productivity of farms is likely to diminish because of climate change, espcially in the poorest countries. Increased drought periods in many parts of the world and erratic rainfalls will endanger yield stability and put global food production at risk.
Information contain in this book will not only enhance climate change mitigation activities which will have broad benefits, it also can provide the data to verify the mitigation benefits of organic agriculture which will allow organic farmers to increase their participation in carbon markets.
The present book would prove useful for post graduate students of Agriculture, Soil Science, Climate Change and Agriculture agencies.
