The Indian Nitrogen Assessment: Sources of Reactive Nitrogen, Environmental and Climate Effects, and Management Options and Policies provides a reference for anyone interested in Reactive N, from researchers and students, to environmental managers. Although the main processes that affect the N cycle are well known, this book is focused on the causes and effects of disruption in the N cycle, specifically in India.
The book helps readers gain a precise understanding of the scale of nitrogen use, misuse, and release through various agricultural, industrial, vehicular, and other activities, also including discussions on its contribution to the pollution of water and air. Drawing upon the collective work of the Indian Nitrogen Group, this reference book helps solve the challenges associated with providing reliable estimates of nitrogen transfers within different ecosystems, also presenting the next steps that should be taken in the development of balanced, cost-effective, and feasible strategies to reduce the amount of reactive nitrogen.
- Identifies all significant sources of reactive nitrogen flows and their contribution to the nitrogen-cycle on a national, regional, and global level
- Covers nitrogen management across sectors, including the environment, food security, energy, and health
- Provides a single reference on reactive nitrogen in India to help in a number of activities, including the evaluation, analysis, synthesis, documentation, and communications on reactive nitrogen

Prof. Y.P. Abrol, President ING-SCON (Indian Nitrogen Group), Former Head of the Division of Plant Physiology at the Indian Agricultural Research Institute, Hamdard University, India. Professor Abrol’s exhaustive Analysis on nitrogen fertilizer use contributed significantly to the 'understanding of the 'regulation of nitrate assimilation'. Professor Abrol worked out a complete N balance sheet of wheat and barley, which formed the basis for understanding and recommendation for optimal utilization of Nitrogen. He published more than 150 research papers and several review papers in different Indian/International Journals, and also edited 15 volumes of publication in various fields relating to agricultural and plant studies.
