Introduction To Agriculture

Techniques

Below are some of the most common sustainable agriculture techniques employed by farmers today to achieve the key goals of weed control, pest control, disease control, erosion control and high soil quality.

Solid Wastes

Solid waste means any garbage, refuse, sludge from a wastewater treatment plant, water supply treatment plant, or air pollution control facility and other discarded materials including solid, liquid, semi-solid.

Soils

Soil is the loose surface material consisting of inorganic particles and organic matter that covers most of the land surface. Soil provides the structural support and the source of water for plants used in agriculture

Agriculture

The most common use of the term "tractor" is for the vehicles used on farms. The farm tractor is used for pulling or pushing agricultural machinery or trailers, for plowing, tilling, disking, harrowing, planting, and similar tasks
Resources in the Agriculture/Agronomy category cover a number of agricultural sciences, including general agriculture, agricultural economics, agricultural engineering, agronomy, tillage research, agroforestry, horticulture, and crop protection and science.
Resources in the Agricultural Chemistry category cover many aspects of chemistry related to disciplines in CC/AB&ES, including agrochemistry, agricultural biochemistry, food chemistry, analytical chemistry, cereal chemistry, and carbohydrate and lipid research.
The Biology category includes resources that individually cover a broad range of topics in the biological sciences. Resources covering specific areas in biology, such as general microbiology, protozoology, parasitology, biometrics, biological education, heredity, and evolutionary biology are also placed in this category.

Pestisides

Pesticides are substances that are meant to control pests or weeds. The term pesticide includes all of the following: herbicide, insecticide, insect growth regulator, nematicide, termiticide.

Fertilizers

The main "organic fertilizers" are peat, animal wastes, plant wastes from agriculture, and treated sewage sludge (biosolids). In terms of volume, peat is the most widely used organic fertilizer.

Grains

Grain is the harvested seed of grasses such as wheat, oats, rice, and corn. Other important grains include sorghum, millet, rye, and barley. Around the globe, grains, also called cereals.
