The Potential of Anti-transpirants for Efficient Water Use and Irrigation Management: A Possible Way of Climate Resilient Agriculture

Abstract

An increase in the population and the change in diet have put enormous pressure on the Indian soil. Farmers struggle to maintain their level of harvesting, soil degradation, water shortages, declines in biodiversity, and more frequent natural disasters. In addition, agriculture accounts for nearly 14 percent of India’s total greenhouse gas emissions. CSA or climate-resilient agriculture can contribute to adapting agricultural systems and attenuating the devastating impact of climate change while producing food and energy sustainably. CSA is an integrated approach to farming, livestock, forests, and fisheries management. It can also solve the interconnected problems of food security and rapid climate change. Smart agricultural practices can help India and the world achieve the following results: increased productivity, improved resilience, reduced emissions, and governmental partnerships, especially in soil and crop management. This paper reviews the potential of anti-transpirants for achieving sustainable agriculture practice, and efficient use of water and management of irrigation.
