About this book

Written to help bring agriculture's "Green Revolution" to the third world, "Integrated Resource Management" includes overviews of current agricultural production systems and their alternatives, demographics on mortality and population growth, soils, erosion, water availability, sustainable integrated agroforestry systems and behavioral adaptations. It explains why a quality environment is essential for future agricultural and economic development. It demonstrates that integrated resource management leads to sustainable and productive agriculture for development. It shows that certain agroforestry techniques conserve soil, water, energy, and biological resources and at the same time increase food and fuel supplies. It addresses the need for interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research and training to implement sound resource management policies and programs.
