Modern Concepts and Advance Principles in crop production By S.C. Panda
This book entitled, �Modern Concepts and Advanced Principles in Crop Production� is written to serve a text/reference/guide book for the students of agriculture, agricultural meteorology, agronomy, veterinary, soil conservation, agricultural engineering-farm machinery and power, Agricultural Economics and field practitioners.
The book fills the need for an up-to-date comprehensive text on Increase the Crop Production by controlling the physical environment and more accurate forecasting for the students at under graduate and post graduate levels.
Forecasting may be of weather, it may be the predictions of crop yield and quality, or it may the estimation of livestock production and climatic hazards.
The control of the physical environment consists in preventing frost, growing windbreaks, adopting flood control measures, controlling temperature and humidity in livestock barns.
Contingent Crop Planning for different aberrant weather situations like flood, drought, cyclone, hail storm, land slide, heat and cold waves, epidemic out breaks and industrial hazards should be taken up in appropriate time to increase the crop production minimizing the loss or damage for adopting alternate methods or techniques for management.
This book will be of immense use in imparting knowledge on the basic principles and applied aspects of the Agricultural meteorology, Natural Disasters and its Management and Contingent Crop Planning for increasing Crop Production through the greenhouse and adopting modern scientific agricultural practices for students, teachers, scientists, extension workers and professionals engaged in agricultural development.
