Book Description:

Chapters in this book provide an in-depth description of ecological agricultural research. The scientific ecological agriculture research illustrates the sustainable and productive potential of ecologically-designed agricultural systems. Book chapters highlight the importance of understanding:i) ecological processes in soils and crop plant systems, ii) ecophsyiology: and iii) the role of genetic diversity and biodiversity in the management of insect pests, plant-pathogens, and weed populations. This book has the potential to spark a reader's interests in agricultural ecology, and the opportunities to manage agricultural systems more sustainably.
