Introduction
R.K.Naresh currently works at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel University of Agriculture & Technology, Meerut (U.P.), India. During last two decades, my work on Conservation Agriculture (CA) especially Residue Management, Soil Moisture Regime, Crop Intensification and Optimizing N Nutrition for Sustaining Soil Health in Subtropical India. In recent years, I am actively exploring the positive relationship between Soil health and Precision Water and Nutrient Management Practices in CA.
