The books deals with the critical issues of climate change and its impact on agriculture and proposes climate smart agriculture as the probable solution to this issue. It discusses the impact of climate change and greenhouse gases emission on agriculture. It covers the strategies and management options of climate smart agriculture by including crop, water, soil, and energy management with examples and case studies. The subject matter has been presented in a very lucid language, containing real-time case studies, questions and few solved problems in specific chapters. The text is further enriched with simple line diagram and figures, chart, flow charts and tables. The book is primarily intended for researchers and professionals in the research areas of environmental science, agriculture, soil science, etc.

Dr. Pratap Bhattacharyya is currently working as ICAR-National Fellow and Principal Scientist at ICAR-National Rice Research Institute, Cuttack, Odisha, India. He obtained B. Sc. (Ag.) from BCKVV, West Bengal, and subsequently, completed M.Sc. and Ph.D. (Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry) from IARI, New Delhi. He started his career as Scientist in 2001 at IISWC, RC, Chandigarh. His fields of specialization are climate change, climate smart rice production, soil fertility and microbiology, soil and water conservation. Dr Pratap extensively worked on natural resource management, particularly climate change aspect on rice, climate resilient and climate smart rice cultivation in lowland rice, soil conservation, watershed management, nutrient and carbon management, and resource conservation technologies in rice. Dr Pratap has given a unique concept that lowland rice ecology is a net carbon sink by using advanced eddy covariance techniques. He also identified the acetoclastic and serine pathways are the predominate ones in methanogenesis and methanotrophy, respectively in lowland rice ecologies by using whole genome metagenomic approach. Dr Bhattacharyya is ICAR-National Fellow; Fellow of National Academy of Agricultural Sciences, India (FNAAS); Fellow of IASWC; got ICAR-LBS young scientist award; Dr K J Tejwani award on NRM by IASWC; Mosaic Foundation young scientist award on plant nutrition; Certificate of Excellence on Eddy covariance techniques by University of Georgia, USA. Dr Pratap has published more than 150 research articles included research papers, books, book chapters, and popular articles. He has guided 5 PhD and 8 MSc students. He served as associated editor for the Journal of Indian Society of Soil Science”.
