Agronomy is a branch of agricultural science, which deals with principles, & practices of soil, water & crop management. Principles of agronomy deal with scientific facts in relations to environment in which crops are produced. We generate and apply knowledge about plants that feed and benefit humankind. Agronomy is a main branch of Agriculture. It is synthesis of several disciplines like soil science, Agricultural chemistry, crop physiology, plant ecology, biochemistry and economics. We find and implement answers to problems and opportunities concerning efficiency and sustainability of crop production and in safe and environmentally sound ways. We study the interactions among cropping systems, climate, and the environment.
