This book is written to provide an easy understanding of the principles of farm management to undergraduate students in Agricultural Universities. Though there are a good number of textbooks published, covering theoretical aspects of farm management and natural resource economics, there is dearth of textbooks by Indian authors focusing on practical aspects of the subject in tune with the requirements of undergraduates in agriculture. The book illustrates each and every topic in easy language supported with relevant examples and exercises for the benefit of readers. Therefore, the present book will be of immense use to B.Sc. (Ag.) students as well as teachers in Agricultural Universities.
