Agronomy Overview

The study of crops and their nutrient requirements is critical to agricultural development. From providing soil and water requirements to breeding highly productive varieties and providing the cultivated crops with good management practices, agronomy plays an important role in optimizing crop yields. It ensures that the nutrients supplied by the soil are adequate and in the right mix. In cases of inadequacy, fertilizers are applied at the right time and in the right doses. In recent times, fertilizer application has transitioned beyond blanket fertilization. The previous approach was found to be wasteful and unsafe for the environment. Practitioners are encouraged through soil testing to supply crop and site-specific fertilizer blends that can optimize yields and protect the environment. Soil testing can be carried out on-field with immediate results or in the laboratory.
Integrated Soil Fertility Management (ISFM) is another sustainable soil management practice that increases productivity by combining improved seeds with the use of organic and inorganic fertilizers. Regenerative agriculture also integrates several agronomic and agricultural practices targeted at preserving biodiversity, improving the soil, increasing productivity, and sustaining ecology. The application of robotics and artificial intelligence in monitoring crop performance and carrying out basic farm management practices is also an efficient agronomic practice.
