Introduction
Sustainability means keeping an effort going continuously, or the ability to last out and keep from falling. So sustainable agriculture means successful management of resources for agriculture to satisfy the changing human needs, while maintaining or enhancing the quality of environment and conserving natural resources. Crop yields remaining stagnant, pesticides polluting the eco-systems, reducing soil fertility, imbalance in host-parasite and predator-parasite relationships have pushed agriculture into dangerous mode. Scientists have looked into the production technologies that facilitated ecological imbalances. Long term projections have indicated that agriculture is being subjected to diminishing returns with severe damage to eco-systems. Hence, in recent years a concept of sustainable agriculture is developed in order to ensure that the agro-eco-systems are stabilized and sustained crop yields are assured on long term basis. It is sustainable agriculture which ensures pollution-free food production and which also ensures continuation of agriculture with least damage to eco-system. This is because, sustainable agriculture involves practices such as organic farming, biological and natural control of pests, emphasis of watershed approach to conserve the soil and water, build-up of microflora in close harmony with beneficial soil - inhabitants and advocates the minimal use of synthetic chemicals.

Aims and Scope:

Special Issue of Sustainable Agriculture under Earth Science (ISSN Print: 2328-5974 and ISSN Online: 2328-5982) seeks to publish high quality of original research, short communication and reviews on sustainable agriculture to improve agricultural production. It actively seeks submissions from academicians and researchers researching into sustainability of agriculture. Special Issue of Sustainable Agriculture is determined to make the leading Special Issue in its regular issues of Earth Science. Primary research articles should report hypothesis driven investigations that provide new insights into sustainable agriculture and that determine productivity and properties for more exploitation. Review articles are welcome but they must be critical in approach and provide particularly new and far reaching insights. Submissions of original articles, short communication and review should be in English.

  1. Soil Fertility
  2. Soil
  3. Soil Management
  4. Agronomy
  5. Crop Management
