Crop sciences are concerned with Selection and improvement of crops. It includes research and development on production techniques, improving agriculture productivity, minimizing the effects of pest, planting, maintenance, protection, harvesting, and storage aspects of post-harvest. Crop sciences also take part in conservation and sustainable use of genetic resources of plants, insects, and other invertebrates, and microorganisms. Agronomy and crop science professionals focus on increasing crop yields while ensuring the safety of food supplies. Crop Science involves crop breeding and genetics; crop biology and metabolism; crop ecology; seed physiology, production, and technology; turf grass science; genomics, molecular genetics, and biotechnology; germplasm collections and their utilization; forage and grazing land ecology and management; and bio-medicinal, health benefits, and nutritionally expanded plants.
Agritech provides an opportunity for the scientists and researchers to explore the innovative and latest study developments in the field of Technological interventions that will increase the crop production.
