Alkali Wastelands Environment and Reclamation

By I.C. Gupta, S.K. Gupta & D.P. Sharma (Authors)

New Delhi, India: MD Publications/Prints Publications, 2007. In the next two decades, population of India is likely to cross 1.4 billion mark. With additional burden on food grains consumption from demographic shift from rural to urban centers and change in food habits, India need to produce about 325 million tons of food grains by 2027. Since the competing demands from other sectors of economy for the inelastic land resource are multiplying fast, the best agricultural lands are being encroached upon by these sectors. Thus, any further increase in food grains has to come from either vertical increase in productivity or through reclamation of so called wastelands. Out of 8.5 million ha of salt affected lands, alkali lands assessed at 3.8 million ha could be easily managed and reclaimed resulting in an additional food grains production of about 30 million tons. Although researches on land reclamation began even before independence yet the real fillip in understanding the alkali wastelands environment and development of reclamation and management packages came after the establishment of CSSRI, Karnal in the year 1969. In association with this institute, many State Agricultural Universities reoriented their research and came out with theories of alkali land reclamation and developed reclamation and management packages. Favorable policy support from central and state governments helped to reclaim more than 1.3 million ha of alkali lands. To tide over the current and emerging challenges such as to take care of resource poor regions and farmers, environmental degradation and location specific nature of the problems, these packages are being upgraded and new packages are being developed. These new technologies are emerging fast and it is alomst impossible to keep track of these developments through published research papers. This book encompasses the latest information on this subject for most states where problems of alkali lands exist. It has been our endeavor to include all aspects of reclamation and management so that there are at least few alternatives to choose from. Therefore, we believe that the compiled information will be handy to post- graduate students, teachers, researchers, extension personals and the staff in conventional departments such as agriculture and irrigation. Moreover, planners entrusted with the task of development of wastelands in India would be immensely benefited from the information included in this book. Printed Pages: 411.. Hardcover. New/New.

Food for All: An Assessment of Food Security in Indian Context

By Gajendra Singh

New Delhi, India: MD Publications/Prints Publications, 2007. The increasing trend in the supply of food grains is seen as the improvements in the food security in our country. In the context, the book is devoted to visualize the national food security scenario for the year 2005-06 and 2010-11 covering 17 major states viz Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal. The study also covers the estimations of per capita availability of food grains in the states and storage requirement of food grains at national level for the same time periods. The past trends were used to estimate the production of cereals and pulses seperately , through the methods of regression, exponential and moving averages and other econometric applications based on their suitability. The requirement for food grains is estimated age group wise rather than on per capita aggregate base to determine the projections close to reality. The book also focus on policy and planning implications as well as discusses the ways and approaches needs to be adopted in major states and at national level to enhance the level of food security.

Agricultural Banking: Getting the Perspective Right

By B. Yerram Raju

New Delhi, India: Konark Publication/D.K. Publishers Distributors, 2013. This book is a collection of select articles written by the author in prominent dailies like The Hindu, Business Line, Financial Express and journals like the Journal of Rural Development, Economic and Political Weekly, Asian Economic Review, INCLUSION among others that provide a history of agricultural banking in the post-independent India. The articles give a perspective as to how the policies have been shaped in the field of agricultural banking. The share of agriculture in GDP has fallen to 12 percent and yet keeping nearly 60 percent of persons depending on it. Farmers are still becoming victims of excessive interest rates and burden of private debt and therefore, the right perspective of institutional lending for agriculture assumes importance. The author has provided insights into how the policies for agricultural banking has evolved over the years and how they are shaping up today. He feels that there is yawning gap between the post-liberalisation and post-nationalisation agricultural and rural credit and requires proper orientation towards the farmers. Historical perspective would enable present day bankers to view the emerging requirements right and the policy makers to see the need for integrating policy perspectives of agriculture credit, agricultural marketing, organized retail marketing, value chain management, and world trade in agriculture, cooperatives and food security as a web of activities. It is a must read for academicians, policy makers, policy consultants, cooperators, bankers and other stakeholder group. Printed Pages: 205.. New.
