Agriculture for Competitive Examinations

B.B. Singh (Author)

A large number of students appear in UPSC-IFS (Agriculture) examination every year and Agriculture is one of the subject. Agriculture graduates always find difficulty in preparation of this examination due to lack of good books. Keeping the aforesaid points in view, I have made an attempt to write a book, which is designed as per latest syllabus of UPSC-IFS (Agriculture), since all facets of Agriculture are covered in this book which is spread over in 22 chapters viz. Agriculture: An Overview, Ecology, Environmental Pollution, Cropping Pattern, Forestry, Weed Management, Soil and Plant Nutrients, Soil Conservation, Irrigations, Agricultural Economics, Cells, Genetics and Mutation, Plant Breeding, Seed Technology, Plant Physiology, Metabolism, Growth and Development, Diseases of Various Crops and its Control, Pesticides, Rhizobial Inoculants and Microbial Toxins, Storage Pests and their Control and Foods.

Presentation of this book is simple, lucid and unambiguous for easy understanding of the subject matter. Though the book is based on the syllabus of UPSC-IFS (Agriculture), it may be useful not only to IFS aspirants but also to all those who are preparing for PCS, ICAR exams, Bank Services and other such examinations.
