Innovative Technologies and Sustainable Agricultural Development

Ritambhara Singh and R.V. Vyas


Monotonous practices in agriculture over the years have resulted in declining crop yield, loss of soil fertility, and have also contributed to environmental problems. This acts as a hindrance in addressing bigger issues like climate change, and food and nutritional security for an ever growing population. In order to address climate change, increase crop yields, and ensure food and nutritional security to all, it is suggested that we follow and promote a mix of innovative technologies, like biotechnology, bio-fertilizers and bio-pesticides, nanotechnology, magnetic agriculture, etc. Adoption of these technologies will also help in achieving long run sustainability in agriculture.
