Non-monetary and low-cost technology role in Sustainable agriculture

Author(s):

Sunita Rani and Mansukh Singh Jatana

Abstract:
In recent time increasing population, land degradation and other major problems in agriculture field has led to reduction in overall production. One of the major goals of sustainable agriculture is continuous stability of production for longer period and this can only be attained by management of soil and water resources but it should be kept in mind that cost of cultivation should be within range of marginal farmers. Low cost and non-monetary technologies had played major role in attaining this statement of sustainable agriculture. Various low-cost technologies such as crop rotation, green manuring and mulching not only control cost of cultivation but also helped in conserving soil and moisture. Non-monetary inputs include soil management by growing leguminous crops, weed management and increment in crop diversity.
