In the 1920s, Justin Christofleau invented a system of electroculture which proved so efficient that it increased crops in considerable proportions (up to 200%) without any chemical fertilizer of any kind. It also prevented diseases and helped rejuvenate plants, and, among other advantages, the germination of seeds was better and shorter, and crops were much hastened. Furthermore, electroculture proved especially suitable in drought-stricken regions. Justin Christofleau explained in his book how his system worked and how to do it, with schemas and pictures. Almost a century later, we are pleased to present again this precious information to everybody, including farmers, gardeners, agronomist, students and anyone concerned about food, health and environment.

In Africa, cassava is gradually being transformed from a famine-reserve commodity and rural staple food to a cash crop for urban consumption. It is referred to as ´´White Gold´´ as it is moving from being a common man´s food to an export crop. Farming especially the production of food crops was left into the hands of the women producers.as most men left the rural areas for urban areas in search for other jobs. The bulk of the activities involved in cassava production and processing are carried out by women, who are faced with diverse constraints and challenges. Since women have resorted to combining male designated tasks with their traditional, female tasks due to challenging economic conditions, there is need to ascertain profitability of the enterprise This study analyzed cassava market chain among women in Ogbomoso Agricultural Zone of Oyo State, Nigeria. The findings revealed that fifty-one percent of the women cultivated the land inherited mostly from their husbands´ lineages. The combination of cassava production and processing by women was found to be most profitable. Researchers in Agricultural Economics and allied sciences will find this book handy in their studies.

Niger (Guizotia abyssinica Cass.) is an important traditional oilseed crop cultivated mainly in Ethiopia and india. However,India is considered to the major niger producing country in the World. In Konkan region of Maharashtra with high rainfall and undulating topography, it is cultivated on very light soils on hill slopes where other crops cannot be grown successfully. As because of medicinal value and having dietary importance this crop become popular among the farming communities in India and abroad.Efforts were taken to paperer this manuscript for the dissemination importance of this traditional oil seed crop. The importance of this crop is widespread due to agro-tourism in konkan region of Maharashtra.This crop perform better under rainy conditions and short maturing characteristic attract this crop better manner.

Role of Rhizospheric Microbes in Soil

In any ecosystem, plant and microbe interaction is inevitable. They not only co-exist but also support each other´s survival and provide sustenance in stressful environments. Agro-ecosystems in many regions around the globe are affected by high temperatures, soil salinity/alkalinity, low pH and metal toxicity. High salinity and severe draught are other major constraints affecting agricultural practices and also plants in the wild. A major limiting factor affecting global agricultural productivity is environmental stresses. Apart from decreasing yield, they also have a devastating impact on plant growth. Plants battle with various kind of stresses with the help of symbiotic associations with the rhizospheric microbes. Naturally occuring plant-microbe interactions facilitate the survival of plants under these stressful conditions. The rhizosphere consists of several groups of microbes, plant growth-promoting bacteria (PGPB) is one such group of microbes that assists plants in coping with multiple stresses and also promote plant growth. These efficient microbes support the stress physiology of the plants and can be extremely useful in solving agricultural as well food- security problems. This book provides a detailed, holistic description of plant and microbe interaction. It elucidates various mechanisms of nutrient management, stress tolerance and enhanced crop productivity in the rhizosphere, discussing The rhizospheric flora and its importance in enhancement of plant growth, nutrient content, yield of various crops and vegetables as well as soil fertility and health. Divided into two volumes, the book addresses fundamentals, applications as well as research trends and new prospects for agricultural sustainability. Volume 1: Stress Management and Agricultural Sustainability, includes chapters offering a broad overview of plant stress management with the help of microbes. It also highlights the contribution of enzymatic and molecular events occurring in the rhizosphere due to plant microbe interactions, which in turn help in the biological control of plant disease and pest attacks. Various examples of plant microbe interaction in rhizospheric soil are elaborated to facilitate the development of efficient indigenous microbial consortia to enhance food and nutritional security. Providing a comprehensive information source on microbes and their role in agricultural and soil sustainability, this timely research book is of particular interest to students, academics and researchers working in the fields of microbiology, soil microbiology, biotechnology, agronomy, and the plant protection sciences, as well as for policy makers in the area of food security and sustainable agriculture.

Wissenschaftliche Studie aus dem Jahr 2017 im Fachbereich Geowissenschaften / Geographie - Wirtschaftsgeographie, Note: 2,7, Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (DISC), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Fallstudie ´´Landwirtschaft am Jangtsekiang´´ greift die Problematik der chinesischen Agrarwirtschaft in der Region des Jangtsekiang auf und bietet Lösungsansätze für die nachhaltige Bewirtschaftung kleinbäuerlicher, landwirtschaftlicher Betriebe. Die besonderen Herausforderungen, die sich durch den Bau des Drei-Schluchten-Staudamms ergeben, werden besonders berücksichtigt. Die Angleichung des Lebensstandards der ländlichen Bevölkerung an die gesamtwirtschaftliche Entwicklung in der Volksrepublik China stellt eine große Herausforderung dar. Für die Bevölkerung im Einzugsgebiet des Drei-Schluchten-Staudamms kommen weitere hinzu. Durch diese bauliche Maßnahme erfährt auch der Naturraum einen erheblichen Nutzungsdruck, der langfristig zu einer sinnvollen Raumordnungsplanung führen muss, um Zersiedelung und Überbeanspruchung zu vermeiden. Da der Naturraum Mehrfachfunktionen erfüllt, ist der Landwirt in besonderer Weise dazu aufgefordert, den landwirtschaftlichen Betrieb nachhaltig zu bewirtschaften. Ein stärkerer Diversifizierungsgrad mit dem Anbau von Food Crops und Cash Crops kann unter betriebswirtschaftlichen Gesichtspunkten zu einer höheren Rentabilität des landwirtschaftlichen Betriebes beitragen. Staatliche Subventionen und die genossenschaftliche Vermarktung verringern das Investitionsvolumen und schaffen einen Innovationsanreiz. Die Einhaltung von Umweltstandards ist durch eine bodenschonende Bearbeitungsweise sowie die sachgerechte Anwendung von Insektiziden und Pestiziden zu erreichen. Anreize zu einer agrarökologischen Wirtschaftsweise können auch über die Einführung eines Bio-Siegels erfolgen. Durch Weiterbildungsmaßnahmen und die Einrichtung eines Ausbildungsberufs erfährt die ländliche Bevölkerung eine Aufwertung ihrer gesellschaftlichen Stellung. Es kann dadurch langfristig auch die Abwanderung junger Bevölkerungsteile in die Ballungsräume vermieden werden. Eine Ausbildung unter agrarökologischen Gesichtspunkten führt zudem zu einem Bewusstseinswandel beim Erzeuger, wodurch langfristig der verantwortungsbewusste Umgang mit öffentlichen Schutzgütern wie Gewässern oder der Atmosphäre erreicht werden kann. Das Ziel der Arbeit besteht darin, den Nachhaltigkeitsgedanken der Sustainable Development Goals der UN für den Agrarraum am Jangtsekaing umzusetzen und dabei die ökonomische, ökologische und soziale Dimension zu berücksichtigen.
