Overview for Crops and Livestock Farming
Farming is the art, science or practice of producing food, feed, fibre and many other desired goods by the systematic raising of plants and animals. Traditional systems of crops and livestock farming are not static. They adapt to changing circumstances such as increased population pressure, use of fertilizers and changing consumption patterns. farmers, governments, and national and international agencies all have a role in this change, often by keeping track of new technologies and management practices that might be useful for development. This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the modern trends and issues in crops and livestock farming. It will be a valuable references work on individual farming systems, a rich source of comparative data for researchers, and a guide for advanced course in farming systems and agriculture.
