Agronomic glimpse of rice-based cropping and farming system is a practical research guide to improve the socio-economic status of farmers that provides background information as well as details of soil-improving practices, cropping and farming system practices, nutrient management aspects, water management and weed management strategies in rice-based cropping systems.


This book is meant to give the reader a holistic appreciation of the importance of rice-based cropping and farming systems to improve the standards of living and to suggest ecologically sound practices that help to improve the socio-economic status of farmers. In addition, updated several studies to describe a number of key practices that enhance the health of the farmers by improving the soils.


There are just too many differences from one field to another, one farm to another, and one region to another, to warrant blanket recommendations. To make specific suggestions, it is necessary to know the details of the soil, crop, climate, machinery, human considerations, and other variable factors. Good soil management needs to be adaptive and is better achieved through education and understanding than with simple recommendations.
