Soybean Physiology, Agronomy, and Utilization attempts to cover and treat in logical sequence the factors that contribute to the potential and versatility of soybeans. The soybean is a major crop plant in the United States. Based on the utilization of the bean, or products therefrom, a substantial soybean industry has also developed. Its uses, agricultural and industrial, primarily depend on the high content of both protein (ca. 40%) and oil (ca. 20%) in the bean. The book begins by discussing soybean production in the United States and worldwide; the uses and economics of soybean products; and the soybean in physiological research. It explains the growth and development of soybeans. It discusses the physiological processes responsible for assimilating the plant body from the environment, namely photosynthesis, nitrogen fixation, and nitrate reduction. Subsequent chapters examine the impact of environmental variables—such as light, temperature, water, wind, and pests—on soybean plant characteristics as well as soybean breeding, production, processing, and utilization.

Advances in Agronomy continues to be recognized as a leading reference and a first-rate source for the latest research in agronomy. As always, the subjects covered are varied and exemplary of the myraid of subject matter dealt with by this long-running serial. Volume 89 contains six comprehensive and timely reviews. Chapter 1 presents a thorough coverage of wet chemistry and state-of-the art molecular scale techniques, such as x-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopies, that can be used to characterize phosphorus in organic wastes. Chapter 2 discusses the Wheat Genetics Resource Center that has served the scientific community for 25 years. These resources have been useful to scientists in 45 countries and 39 of the states in the U.S. Chapter 3 covers various aspects of the biology and management of Stevia, a sweet herb of Paraguay. Chapter 4 is a timely review of aspects of soil fertility decline in the tropics as assessed by soil chemical measurements. Chapter 5 covers nematode interactions and assessment of models for their control on crop plants. Chapter 6 presents data and algorithms on ammonia emission form animal operations, a current area of much interest in the area of environmental quality. Over 40 figures and 32 tables Presents a review of the present and future status of soil science Offers an analysis of biodiversity in agronomy

Agronomy is that branch of agriculture, which deals with the study of plants in order to get food, fiber, fuel, etc. The major topics included in agronomy are plant breeding, crop rotation, soil classification, weed control, irrigation, plant physiology, soil fertility, pest control, etc. This book provides detailed information about the subject of agronomy. It aims to understand the various topics that fall under this discipline, and also examines the techniques and how these have practical applications. Coherent flow of topics and student friendly language make this text an invaluable source of knowledge.

Nanometal Oxides in Horticulture and Agronomy, a volume in the Nanomaterial-Plant Interactions series, summarizes the physiological, morphological, biochemical, and molecular regulation of metal oxide nanoparticles in plants under normal conditions as well as during different stresses. With a focus on impact and applications, it presents the latest advances in the roles of metal oxide nanoparticles in both horticulture and agriculture. Metal oxide nanoparticles have been reported as beneficial inorganic materials for the growth and development of plants, playing a protective role against the abiotic and biotic stresses. Researchers need to understand the different regulatory pathways of metal oxide nanoparticles, including their mechanisms of operation under different stressful conditions. This volume presents the physiological, morphological, biochemical, and molecular regulation of metal oxide nanoparticles in plants in normal conditions as well as during different stresses. It also discusses tolerance mechanisms and the variety of roles and applications that metal oxide nanoparticles have within plant biology. Beginning with an introductory overview to metal oxide nanomaterials, chapters discuss the effect of metal oxide nanomaterials on biochemical pathways within the plant, highlighting key applications such as fertilizers, weed control systems and pest control systems. It describes the impact of metal oxide nanoparticles in different challenging environmental conditions. Concluding with a discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of metal oxide nanoparticles in agriculture, Nanometal Oxides in Horticulture and Agronomy provides inspiration for further research and advancement. This book is an essential read for researchers and students interested in horticulture, agronomy, and plant nanomaterials. Bridges the interdisciplinary knowledge gap between metal oxide nanoparticle synthesis and biological relevance in agriculture and horticulture Evaluates why metal oxide nanoparticles are superior to other nanomaterials for horticultural and agricultural applications Interprets the impact of metal oxide nanoparticles against a variety of different stressors, including drought, salinity and heavy metal contamination

This book has been written in short, as a 'practical text book' in Agronomy subject, based on theoretical background, for thorough knowledge of that subject, after a long teaching experience in the universities. Practical classes, with lesson numbers have been fitted, immediately after theoretical discussions, in different sub-chapters in Chapters, on the same studies. The lesson, has been divided into 'Introduction', 'Objective', 'Materials required' & 'Procedure'. In some cases, 'assignments' have also been given.
