Sustainable Agriculture under Drought Stress: Integrated Soil, Water and Nutrient Management seamlessly blends cutting-edge research with practical applications, offering a unique perspective on tackling this urgent challenge. Through a multidisciplinary lens, this book provides a cohesive and comprehensive understanding of both the current landscape and future prospects.

The escalating demand for water in arid and semiarid regions for water is straining already limited natural resources. In such conditions, optimized irrigation practices become imperative, as rain-fed agriculture often yields uncertain outcomes. Balancing this uncertainty requires efficient nutrient application alongside water management. Moreover, selecting suitable crops becomes crucial, considering their tolerance to water stress and nutritional requirements. In essence, successful crop production in drought-stressed agriculture hinges on precise fertilization and water management, coupled with a deep understanding of crop physiology.

Readers are equipped with the knowledge and strategies required to manage soil nutrients and water effectively, ensuring the health of both soil and plants, especially in arid and semi-arid regions, where solutions are urgently needed. This book offers actionable insights into mitigating the impacts of climate change on agricultural systems, making it essential reading for anyone invested in sustainable land management and food security.
