Abstract

The Semi-Arid Tropics (SAT) is the region of the world where average monthly rainfall exceeds potential evapo-transpiration for about 2-7 months in a year and mean monthly temperature is above 18°C. This geographical region contains a variety of soils, climates, crops and people. Here the poorest of the poor live, and disasters caused by droughts and failure of crops are very common, because most of the farming is rainfed and the rainfall is unreliable. The soil and management of edaphic and climate resources for increasing and stabilizing food production thus assume great importance in improving the standards of living of the people.
