It includes mitigation techniques such as use of bioenergy crops, fertilizer and manure management, conservation tillage, crop rotations, cover crops and cropping intensity, irrigation, erosion control, management of drained wetlands, lime amendments, residue management, biochar and biotechnology. It also includes Management of GHG emissions Crop models as decision support tools QTL analysis Crop water productivity Impacts of drought on cereal crops Silvopastoral systems Changing climate impact on wheat-based cropping systems of South Asia Phosphorous dynamics under changing climate Role of bioinformatics The focus of the book is climate change mitigation to enhance sustainability in agriculture. We present various kinds of mitigation options, ways to minimize GHG emissions and better use of the latest techniques in conservation and environmental-sustainability.Subject(s): ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT | GESTION DE L'ENVIRONNEMENT | GESTIÓN AMBIENTAL | CLIMATE CHANGE | CHANGEMENT CLIMATIQUE | CAMBIO CLIMÁTICO | RENEWABLE ENERGY | ÉNERGIE RENOUVELABLE | ENERGÍA RENOVABLE | NATURAL RESOURCES | RESSOURCE NATURELLE | RECURSOS NATURALES | GREENHOUSE GASES | GAZ À EFFET DE SERRE | GASES DE EFECTO INVERNADERO | PRODUCCIÓN ALIMENTARIA | PRODUCTION ALIMENTAIRE | PRODUCCIÓN ALIMENTARIA | PLANT PRODUCTION | PRODUCTION VÉGÉTALE | PRODUCCIÓN VEGETAL
