Organic Dairy Farming

By M. Singh,D.K. Sharma,U.K. Mishra

Satish Serial Publishing House, 2011. Hardcover. New. The book Organic Dairy Farming unfolds the various aspects of the organic dairy farming system, need of organic farming. Dairy industry scenario in India and Abroad, quality control aspect of milk, nutritional profile of organic milk, hygienic milk production, livestock ethical issues and organic farming legislation, certification and labeling. This book also gives insight to impending climatic changes its influence on milk production, climate stresses its mitigation strategies and global warming etc. In organic farming system, use of soluble fertilizers, pesticides, growth regulators, feed additives and other chemicals are avoided. The organic farmer relics on the crop rotations, animals manure, low stocking rates and good animal husbandry practice for producing outputs. The natural immunity of plants and animals are used to combat disease whenever possible. Although many perceive “Organic” to mean “pesticide-free” or “hormone free”, it refers to the management system and not the final product. It is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs like veterinary drugs for animal health care and non-use of fertilizers and pesticides for fodder production. Organic dairying is aimed at organic farms and deals with management of dairy farms, pasture management, feed production and parasite control. Organic milk production involves the rearing of milch animals on feed and fodder grown in farms using only organic inputs. Consumers perceive that organic milk tastier, healthier and more natural than conventional milk. The book is useful for the students, teacher and researcher in the subject of Dairy Science, Animal Husbandry, Agriculture and Veterinary Science. This could be a good reference book to the farmers and livestock owners who are interested in Organic Dairy Farming in urban and rural areas. Printed Pages: 157. NA

Theory and Practice of Integrated Pest Management

By A.K. Dhawan,B. Singh,R. Arora

Scientific Publishers, 2012. Hardcover. New. The dominance of insects in the world fauna has made them the humanity`s greatest rival for the world`s food resources, both directly by eating the plants cultivated for food and indirectly as vectors of pathogens attacking these plants. Agricultural scientists and especially entomologists have strived hard to develop a diversity of cultural, mechanical, biological and chemical weapons during the last more than two centuries to gain dominance over insects. However, there is evidence that insect pest problems have escalated with an increasing cropping intensity and with the use of agrochemicals inherent in modern agriculture. Consequently, Indian plant protection scientists have intensified research on the development of pest management tactics and effective pest management systems have been designed for all the important crops in the country. This book, consisting of 29 chapters, draws together the diverse literature on the subject of insect pest management in agriculture and contains contributions written by scientists having extensive experience with insect pest problems in Indian agriculture. The first half of the book is devoted to the principles and components of pest management including factors affecting pest populations, construction of life tables, coevolution of insects and plants, pest forecasting, pesticides, IGRs, botanicals, entomopathogenic nematodes and molecular approaches, etc. The different tactics for the management of major insect pests of principal agricultural crops of India, viz. rice, maize, wheat, forage crops, cotton, sugarcane, vegetables, fruits, oilseeds, pulse crops, jute, mesta and tobacco have been discussed in the second half of the book. The book contains a wealth of information on all aspects of insect pest management in agriculture under Indian conditions and would prove indispensable for students, teachers and researchers in agricultural entomology in India and other Asian countries.
