Conservation agriculture: An overview

Dr. Satya Narayan

Conservation Agriculture is a farming technique that emphasises little soil disturbance (i.e., no tillage), the preservation of a permanent soil cover, and plant diversity. It improves biodiversity and natural biological processes above and below ground, resulting in more efficient water and fertiliser usage, as well as enhanced and long-term crop production. CA methods can also help farmers adapt to current weather shifts. CA can include a wide range of activities such as forage and farm animal management, soil enhancement, agroforestry (mixed cultivation of agricultural crops and trees), watershed management, and management of areas reserved for village and community members. Climate change predictions for the Indian Himalayan Region (IHR) will be examined in this chapter. Then, for climatically affected locations, the potential of CA as a source to ease and acclimate to climate change will be investigated.
