"Microbes and climate are major influences on crop growth, and therefore significantly influence the quality, productivity, and sustainability of food production systems. Global warming is projected to significantly impact agriculture in terms of temperature, precipitation, chilling and glacial run-off etc. Microbes can be both beneficial and detrimental in agriculture; the array of functions they perform under stressed/limited conditions are currently underestimated. Agriculture is affected by the crop microbiome, nutrient cycling microbes, endophytes, and mycorrhizae, as well as pests and disease. Agricultural sustainability has always been highly dependent on the relationships between these factors. Various microorganisms can thrive under extreme conditions - extreme temperatures, extreme pH, high saline concentrations and pressures, etc. As a result, they provide excellent models for understanding the stress tolerance, adaptation and response mechanisms that can be subsequently engineered into crop plants to cope with climate change induced stresses. Use of these microorganisms may alleviate stresses in crop plants, which in turn opens a new and emerging application in agriculture. While there is an abundance of information on this topic, there is not yet a comprehensive volume pulling current research together. This text will be authored by leaders in the field and edited to ensure conciseness and clarity. Chapters will cover a broad range of agriculturally important crops, impact of climate change on crops as well as biotechnologically and environmentally relevant microbes; the text will serve as a springboard for novel research findings and new applications in the field"--Provided by publisher.

Rapid urbanisation, inequalities in income and service levels within and between communities, and population and economic decline are challenging the viability of rural communities worldwide. Achieving healthy and viable rural communities in the face of rapidly changing social, ecological and economic conditions is a declared global priority. As a result, governments all over the world, in both developed and developing countries, are now prioritizing rural and regional development through policies and programs aimed at enhancing the livelihoods of people living in rural regions. In recognition of the important roles that research can play in rural development, a range of systematic literature reviews have rightly examined key priorities in rural development including education, gender, economic development (especially agriculture), and health and nutrition (see Department for International Development [DFID], 2011). However, none of these works has systematically examined the extent to which rural development as a field of research is progressing towards facilitating sustainable change. This book evaluates trends in rural development research across the five continental regions of the world. Specifically, it assesses the total publication output relating to rural development, the types of publications, their quality and impact over the last three decades. Additionally, it evaluates the continental origins of the publications as well as the extent to which such publications engage with issues of sustainability. The aim is to determine whether the rural development field is growing in a manner that reflects research and policy priorities and broader social trends such as sustainability. Development policy makers, practitioners, those teaching research methods and systematic literature reviews to undergraduate and graduate students, and researchers in general will find the book both topical and highly relevant.

Irrigated agriculture, a vital component of general agriculture, supplies fruits, vegetables, and cereals consumed by humans and grains fed to animals. Consequently, agriculture is the largest user of fresh water globally, and irrigation practices in many parts of the world are biologically, economically, and socially unsustainable. Water management should balance the need for agricultural water and the need for a sustainable environment. Water-use efficiency is the prime challenge in worldwide farming practices where problems of water shortages are widespread. Currently, agriculture is undergoing significant changes in innovative irrigation, fertilizer technology, and agronomic expertise. These elements constitute a vital platform for sustainable agricultural success and for preventing environmental damage. This review presents several processes linked to environmental irrigation, balancing environmental protection with improved agricultural production.
