Cropping Systems: Applications, Management and Impact


Johanna G. Hodges (Editor)

Series: Agriculture Issues and Policies
BISAC: TEC003030

This book provides a discussion on the applications, management and impact of cropping systems. Chapter One reviews the possibility of using intercropping, especially strip intercropping, as an effective and economically efficient crop biofortification. Chapter Two evaluates phosphorus dynamics in the soil-plant system under different management practices in the semiarid land of Pampas, Argentina. Chapter Three focuses on long-term winter wheat cropping and it’s influence on soil quality and yield stability. Chapter Four examines gender-based socio-economic characteristics of cassava farmers; gender-based climate change awareness of cassava farmers; gender-based cassava farmers’ constraints to climate change adaptation and examines the factors influencing gender-based cassava farmers’ choice of adaptation strategies in the study area. Chapter Five studies the increased soil fertility in a long-term rice-oilseed rape cropping system and its potential roles in reducing nitrogen inputs and in the environment. (Imprint: Novinka)
