The Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Nations has forecasted the need to increase world food production by 70% in order to keep pace with the growing demand of food due to the ever-growing global population [1]. Increasing food production is the primary objective of all the countries, as the global population is expected to reach ≈10 billion by 2050. Moreover, to feed the burgeoning global population, we need to produce more food and livelihood opportunities from reducing per capita arable land and water. To meet the food, feed and fodder requirements we have deployed intensive agriculture which uses green revolution technology. The green revolution technology has been characterized by excessive use of high yielding varieties, chemical fertilizers, pesticides and irrigation water. While the gain in agricultural production has been very impressive, the input intensive agriculture has resulted in several undesirable effects on the environment and the overall sustainability of the farming systems.
