Consumers are increasingly demanding higher quantities and qualities of agricultural products despite the fact that soil and water scarcity, climate change, and shifts toward crop-based sources of energy are concurrently putting increased pressure on agriculture production. In this book, top researchers explore the ways in which superior varieties, better agronomic practices and farming system research can be used to meet the growing needs of agricultural production. There is a strong emphasis on the importance of genetic improvement and agronomy. The second edition contains 12 all-new chapters on topics like biological nitrogen fixation, case studies of cropping systems in China, Africa, and South America, and the impact of climate change.
