Agronomy and Crop Science deal with the challenges in agricultural problems such as drought, chemical constraints, extreme temperatures, flooding and oxidative stress, mineral deficiency and toxicity stress. It further focuses on increasing crop yields while ensuring the safety of food supplies. Agronomy and crop science also focuses on plants such as food and cash crops like grain and seed nutrition; and as well as increasing the amount and quality of food. It also strives to improve crop and soil conditions in cost effective and environmentally sound ways. Agronomy and Crop Science include the studies in subfields like soil chemistry, genetics, entomology, plant physiology, plant breeding and soil fertility, agroecology, turf grass management, seed production or pest management. This session discusses more on the latest developments in agronomy and crop science.
