Description Crop production and environment FB2

Crop production depends on the successful implementation of the soil, water, and nutrient management technologies. Food production by the year needs to be increased by 50 percent more than the present levels to satisfy the needs of around 8 billion people.

Much of the increase would have to come from intensification of agricultural production. Importance of wise usage of water, nutrient Cited by: Soil is a complex body that exists as many types, each with diverse properties that may vary widely across time and space as a function of many factors.

This complexity makes the evaluation of soil quality much more challenging than that of water or air quality. Evaluation of soil quality now considers environmental implications as well as economic productivity, seeking to be more holistic in.

Decline of arable weed seeds during 20 years in soil under grass and the periodicity of seedling emergence after cultivation.

tilling the soil for crop production is through the use of plow and harrow drawn by a carabao. This method is so tedious and also consumes much of the farmer’s time.

Because there is a need for faster crop production processes, farm mechanization was started to be introduced. Many. MODULE 4: CROP PRODUCTION SYSTEMS The successes and failures of crops have always been subject to prevailing environmental factors and hence the mechanisms for managing the stresses imposed by these factors have remained subjects of extensive studies in varied disciplines.

It is noteworthy that currently, crop production is increasingly. First published in Nutrition is a major environmental factor in regulating plant growth, and is therefore of significant practical concern to agriculturalists and ecologists.

In order to achieve efficient plant production, it is essential to gain a full understanding of the basic principles underlying the three-way interaction between the plant, its nutrition and its environment.5/5(1).
