Organic Farming in Plantation Crops
In order to popularize organic farming among the farmers, it is felt that such technologies without the use of any inorganic fertilizers and plant protection chemicals are made available to them. Though many technologies have been generated but, there continues to be considerable gap between the needs and availability. This book, “Organic Farming in Plantation Crops” written by experts in the field, covering organic farming practices of important plantation crops, tries to bridge this gap. As valuable source of information to all those involved in organic farming including scientists, developmental personnel, policy makers, NGOs and farmers, it is expected to stimulate and motivate more intensified R & D efforts, favourable policy initiatives to spread organic farming of plantation crops at the grass roots level for the production of safe food under healthy environmental conditions.
