Abstract

The main future threat to US agriculture is its diminishing resource base, threatened by both depletion and contamination. The book examines the problems for energy, water and soil, and approaches to solving them. Main chapters cover: organic farming, energy conservation for crops, greenhouses, animal husbandry, and post production; sustaining soil, water and environment (reducing pollution control, integrated pest management) and future technology (solar technology and other energy sources, biotechnology, embryo transfer, biomass, mechanization and management).
