Today, everyone is concerned about the production systems, where the land and water resources supporting agricultural production are at higher risk to meet both current and future needs of mankind. Resources are limited and competing in nature which further challenges to the user to manger them on sustainable basis for the well-being of everyday. The book entitled “Land and water Resource Conservation – Issues, Options and Experiences” contains commissioned articles by experts In various fields. The papers included in this volume covering a wide range of information viz, natural resources, climate change watershed management conservation technologies, soil health regional experiences tribal agriculture and organic farming for better understating of the diverged problems. The contribution in this document pertains to leading technologists and scientists, planner’s administrator policy makers program implementing official etc. The book is intended for those who working on land and water resources for enhancing eco-system services to get balanced environmental benefits.
