About the Book
The farming system is considered sustainable only when productivity is maintained over a long period by enhancing the protection of natural resources with significant profitability to guarantee financial benefit to farmers. India leads the world in harboring the largest irrigated area.If India wants to improve sustainable farming practices and production, it must embark on new initiatives incorporating people, land and water with government, non-government and corporate support. In this book, the author, who is Tata Visiting Chair at NM Sadguru Water and Development Foundation, highlights the “Sadguru Model of Rural Development”in the Indian context, and how it promotes rural development at the grassroots while enhancing farming sustainability and food security. If the model highlighted in this book is adopted across the drylands of India and elsewhere, it would greatly increase agriculture output, guarantee food security, protect natural resources, and above all, wipe out poverty, which is the greatest insult to human dignity.
