While a good grasp of the many separate aspects of agriculture is important, it is equally essential for all those involved in agriculture to understand the functioning of the farming system as a whole and how it can be best managed.? It is necessary to re-assess and understand rain-fed farming systems around the world and to find ways to improve the selection, design and operation of such systems for long term productivity, profitability and sustainability. The components of the system must operate together efficiently; yet many of the relationships and interactions are not clearly understood.? Appreciation of these matters and how they are affected by external influences or inputs are important for decision making and for achieving desirable outcomes for the farm as a whole.? This book analyses common rain-fed farming systems and defines the principles and practices important to their effective functioning and management.

Todays environmental pressures make it more vital than ever to re-assess the value of rain-fed farming systems and find ways to improve their long-term productivity, profitability and sustainability. This well timed analytical volume does precisely that.
