Book Description
In the next two decades, population of India is likely to cross 1.4 Billion mark. With additional burden on food grains consumption from demographic shift from rural to urban centres and change in food habits, India need to produce about 325 million tons of food grains by 2027. Since the competing demands from other sector5s of economy for the inelastic land resource are multiplying fast, the best increase in food grains has to come from either vertical increase in productivity or through reclamation of so called wastelandls. Out of 8.5 Million ha of salt affected lands, alkali lands assessed at 3.8 million ha could be easily managed and reclaimed resulting in an additional food grains production of about 30 millions tons.
