Rice Science

K Annadurai (Author) R. Kavimani (Author) B Chandrasekaran (Author)

Agronomy deals with the principles and practices of crop production and soil management. In its broader sense, it includes crop ecology, crop production, crop nutrition, soil fertility, water management, weed control, seed technology etc. To be a good agronomist, one needs to have a sound knowledge of all these agronomic aspects and also name related aspects from other sciences. Rice continues to be the most important food source in the world, with about 20% of the global population depending on it as a staple food. A compilation of available information on rice has been a felt need of students, teachers, research workers and administrators in Agronomy. This book is aimed at providing a comprehensive text on rice cultivation/production with major emphasis on rice based integrated farming system models, organic farming aspects, alternate cropping, new techniques like SRI, role of Biotechnology etc., in an easily understandable manner. This book will help to enrich the knowledge of young researchers in various fields of agriculture and in particular, agronomy, as well as to the teachers and researchers of the Agricultural Universities/Research Organisations.
