Crop science is concerned with selection and improvement of crops. It includes research and development on production techniques, improving agriculture productivity, minimizing the effects of pest, planting, maintenance, protection, harvesting and storage aspects of post-harvest. Advances in Crop Science and Technology is the field dealing with the selection, breeding, crop productivity, seed production, organic cover crops, crop technology transpiration, field crops research, domestic animals, crop and irrigation technology. Crop technology is the application of organized and scientific knowledge to solve practical problems. Technological interventions like dwarfing gene, hybrid technology, biotechnology, seed technologies and agronomic technologies will increase the crop production. Crop productivity is the quantitative measure of crop yield in given measured area of field. The use of new crop varieties and the efficient application of agrochemicals, immensely contributed to increased plant productivity.
