    in crop production over a period of time, third, to find out the share of the technology in the productivity of crops and to asses the economic sustainability of crop production technology over a period of time. The bulk of this book is devoted to examination of contribution of technology in . Irrigated agriculture has had an enormous influence on food security, water security and human wellbeing. Water footprint (how much water is used), water scarcity (how scarce water is), and crop water productivity (how much productivity irrigation adds) are important indicators for evaluating sustainability in irrigated agriculture.

    The book contains 33 chapters pertaining to sections on (i) water resource management (ii) irrigation water management (iii) soil resource management (iv) sustainability in agriculture and (v) crop management and productivity with the content contributed by eminent researchers throughout the world. Historical aspects of soil fertility and crop production research / K.R. Krishna -- 2. Soil geography and sustainability of cultivation / Lothar Beyer -- 3. Soil mineral deficiency, nutrient acquisition, and crop production / K.R. Krishna -- 4. Nitrogen in soil: Transformations and influence on crop productivity / K.R. Krishna and Carl Rosen -- 5.

    Crop productivity is the quantitative measure of crop yield in given measured area of field. The use of new crop varieties and the efficient application of agrochemicals, immensely contributed to .
