Agriculture is one of the prime users of water, particularly in arid places with already-limited water resources, and its effects are diverse and far reaching. Providing a nuanced study of agricultural resource management, this informative book takes a four-pronged approach, covering research on:

* The impact of agriculture on water

* The impact of agriculture on soil quality and its ecological health

* Energy and greenhouse gases

* The impact of a growing population on agricultural resources

Topics include the connection between chemical fertilizer use in agriculture and stream water quality; beef and dairy production on livestock, dairy, and crops; livestock and greenhouse gases; energy consumption rates in agriculture; efficient farming techniques, such as precision agriculture, irrigation management, and sustainable water technologies; and more.

This informative and accessible volume offers a comprehensive guide to this vital and necessary field of study.
