Role of climate and weather in crop production and management

Image Climate and weather are significant factors affecting agriculture production around the world. Both seasonal and regional variability in weather directly influences crop yield potential. While advances in technology have enabled farmers to adopt modern techniques in agriculture and thus enhance their farm output, weather remains a major factor affecting their crops. From plantation to harvest, precipitation, temperature, sunshine hours and wind can affect the quality and quantity of a crop. The correlation between crop volumes and weather can result in a successful yield or a financial disa... Read More

Applying modern tech to agriculture

Image Modern agriculture is driven by continuous improvements in digital tools and data as well as collaborations among farmers and researchers across the public and private sectors. During the Green Revolution in the 1960s, India could achieve self-sufficiency in food grain production by using modern methods of agriculture like better quality of seeds, proper irrigation, chemical fertilisers and pesticides. As time passed, more technological advances appeared in agriculture. The tractor was introduced, followed by new tillage and harvesting equipment, irrigation and air seedi... Read More

A brief summary of the origin and relevancy of crop protection in Agriculture

Image The struggle against pests, diseases and weeds commenced at the time that primitive man changed his life style from that of a nomadic hunter to that of a cultivator of crops. Throughout history we read about the devastating effects of the outbreaks of insect pests and plant diseases. A serious famine occurred for example in Ireland during the 1840’s due to the outbreak of Late blight of potatoes caused by the fungi Phytophthora infestans. More than 700 000 germans died of famine and disease due to a potatoe crop failure caused by Late blight and insects at the end of World W... Read More

Importance of crop science

Image In order to maintain profitable production of useful industrial crops, the Crop Science research focus area is equipped to study the importance of soil and crop cultivation practices in different environments on the growth, yield and quality of our mandated crops. Fully equipped soil, water and plant analytical laboratories support researchers and farmers with data useful on fertilizer recommendations to optimise efficient use of expensive fertilisers. Both commercial and small-scale producers are provided with optimum cultivation packages for cultivars in South Africa. ... Read More

Crop Yield: Definition & Consequences

Image There are a few reasons why understanding crop yield is so important. First, as we mentioned earlier, there are a lot of mouths to feed on our planet and there's a finite amount of land to grow food on. Being able to estimate crop yield allows us to understand food security, the ability to produce enough food to meet human needs in the foreseeable future. Second, each crop has an estimate of what its yield will be, called a potential yield. Individual farmers can compare their crop yields to this potential yield to see how well they are competing. The difference between their ... Read More

Smart Farming: The Future of Agriculture Technology

Image The Growing Use of Smart Farming Worldwide In the coming years, smart farming is projected to create a massive impact on the agricultural economy by bridging the gap between small and large-scale businesses. The trend is not only pertinent in developed countries — developing countries have also realized its immense importance as well. In countries such as China and Japan, wide-scale deployments of smartphones and internet of things (IOT) systems have led to a rapid adoption of precision agriculture solutions. The governments of several countries ha... Read More

Industrialized Agriculture and Subsistence Agriculture

Image Industrialized Agriculture and Subsistence Agriculture Industrialized agriculture is able to produce large quantities of food due to the farming methods used. Instead of using animal and manpower to work the fields, industrialized agriculture utilizes large machines, which are more powerful and can work faster and harder. The shift towards machines has increased the use of fossil fuels on industrial farms, and, therefore, the price of food can fluctuate as the price of oil changes. Industrialized agriculture also increases crop yield by investing in large irrigati... Read More

Growth and Development of the Agriculture Sector

Image Agriculture is one of the major sectors of the Indian economy. It is present in the country for thousands of years. Over the years it has developed and the use of new technologies and equipment replaced almost all the traditional methods of farming. Besides, in India, there are still some small farmers that use the old traditional methods of agriculture because they lack the resources to use modern methods. Furthermore, this is the only sector that contributed to the growth of not only itself but also of the other sector of the country. India largely depends on the agriculture sec... Read More
