The Sustainable Development Goals, endorsed by the United Nations put great emphasis on moving away from heavy input agricultural system to more eco-friendly and balanced farming. Eco Agriculture or Agro Ecology is the approach capable of producing enough food and accessible food without harming the environment. In the last few decades our awareness and knowledge base for new generation agri bio inputs have considerably increased. At the same time, almost at all world forums, the urgency of converting the lab and factory scale information to actual practices and demonstrated applications have been emphasized again and again.
This book is about moving from ‘Know How’ to ‘Do How’ and brings about experience in industrial research and farm scale demonstrations in different parts of the world to demonstrate the practical aspects of Eco Agriculture. As was said by Mahatma Gandhi, “an ounce of practice is better than a ton of advice”. Globally we stand in the defining moment in history.The fundamental need in the evolution of happy, peaceful and prosperous nations and societies is laying the foundations for sustainable development. Our Vision and Conviction for the Coming Eco Agri Revolution is vital for a sustainable future.
