About this eBook

PREFACE TO 3rd EDITION Agronomy, one of the most important branches of Agriculture, assumed newer dimensions to provide favourable environment to the crop for higher productivity. A number of books have been written dealing with specific branches of agronomy such as agrometeorology, crop management, soil managemet, nutrient management, water management, weed management, dryland agriculture, etc. The experience shows that either these books are not available to most of the students or if available they remain unread due to lack of adequate time. Therefore, to cater the needs of students competing for various examinations interviews the book "AGRONOMY AT A GLANCE" has been written. The book "AGRONOMY AT A GLANCE" written during 2001 was well accepted by the readers. Therefore, it was decided to further expand the book, in the form of two volumes Vol. 1 Basic and Applied Fundamentals and Vol. 2 Objective Fundamentals separately. The book covers almost entire field of Agronomy in ten chapters in the form of question answers. The questions are framed very critically in a manner they cover the entire main topics step by step. No doubt the two volumes of the book would be of paramount importance for students appearing for interviews, viva-voce, comprehensive and other competitive examinations as it would help them to revise the entire agronomy within a short time and recollect the vast knowledge they gained by reading different books of agronomy. The glossary of agronomic terms, list of important books of agronomy, common weeds associated with different crops, conversion factors for different units, area, production and productivity of crops, important abbreviations etc. are appended at the end which will be of added advantage. We sincerely thank the Agrotech Publishing Academy, Udaipur for publishing this book. Suggestions for improvement of the present book from worthy teachers and students will be greatfully acknowledged. P.L. Maliwal S.L. Mundra
