Plant nutrition is defined as the study of the chemical elements and compounds necessary for plant growth, and their external supply. Due to lack of nutrition, the plant is unable to complete a normal life cycle, or that the element is part of some essential plant constituent or metabolite and the nutrients in soils, plant and ecosystems of plant production with the aim, to improve the growth of plants, and also to increase the quality of harvest products.
Plant biotechnology comprises a diversity of procedures that are used in plants for specific purposes and to provide justifiable food and good nutritional support. By changing the genome and the specific traits of the plant species are discovered that are disease resistant, drought-resistant plants that will survive in any environmental conditions. Many research works have been conducting to find out the specific genes and the genetic engineering principle are gene-editing molecular markers have been involved in creating a specific trait. The researchers select a specific genes in genetic resources and transfer genes for specific traits into plants which they are needed
Agricultural Administrators manage all aspects of running farms and different facilities that manufacture crops, a number of their duties embrace designing, direction, and generally collaborating within the planting, fertilization, and harvest home method.
Medicinal plants are used as traditional medicine. The plant produces phytochemicals that have pharmacological effects with rigorous efficacy and safety. The various compounds of phytochemicals are alkaloids, glycosides, polyphenols, and terpenes. These medicinal plants used as alternative medicine and dietary supplements. Herbal medicine is derived from the plant extracts thus used for various ailments. Herbal medicine also is known as phytomedicine or phytotherapy. Herbal products dietary supplements are used in phytomedicine. Thus, Medicinal plants are used as a nutraceutical, food supplements, folk medicines, pharmaceutical intermediates for synthetic drugs.
Plant genetics comprises the study of genes, heredity, genetic variation. The genetic modification includes two methods such as Gene gun method and Agrobacterium method. The plant genome assembly involves the arrangement of a genomic sequence into chromosomes and other organelles by using DNA fragments that are obtained by the gene sequence technique. The assembly strategies methods are Sanger clone-by-clone method, Sanger whole-genome shotgun (WGS), Next-generation sequencing (NGS) and Third-generation sequencing (TGS). Genetic variation such as mutation can contribute to the development of polyploidy. Plant genetics and genomics involve the areas of Genetics revolution, single-gene inheritance, Gene interaction, DNA structure and replication, RNA transcription and processing, Gene isolation and manipulation, plant breeding and macroevolutionary processes.
Agronomy,prime department dealing fundamentals of crops and totally different agro techniques of crop production. Entamology, differing kinds of insects their classification and identification their harmful effects on varied field and farming crops. Horticulture, during this department package of practices of fruits, vegetables, flowers, decorative plants. Medicinal, aromatic plants and plantation crops yet as spices area unit studied
World populations and economies square measure increasing their demands for food and fibre. Agricultural systems measure placed besieged to satisfy environmental, social and economic goals. The global problems with food security and temperature change unify analysis during this theme, and analysis to boost our understanding of what limits plant growth and replica with a read to increasing productivity while not harming the surroundings. Current approaches to tackle this question vary from molecular-based analysis of plant development and sickness to ecological studies of agricultural ecosystems and marker-assisted plant breeding
Plant physiology is study of the functioning of plants. The five main areas to study plant physiology are Phytochemistry, environmental interactions, cellular interactions, plant morphology and molecular and cellular biology. The principle chemical elements that are constructed by plants are carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, phosphorus, nitrogen, sulphur. various pigments are absorbed by plants and some dyes are extracted from plants that are used in manufacturing rubber and biofuel. Medicinal plants have a pharmacological activity such as salicylic acid from which aspirin, morphine, digoxin is made. The different plant pigments are porphyrins, carotenoids, anthocyanins, chlorophyll, betalains. Plant hormone the Plant growth regulators (PGRS) that regulate the chemical for plant growth and development.
Crop protection is that the science and apply of managing plant diseases, weeds and different pests both vertebrate and invertebrate that injury agricultural crops and biology. Agricultural crops embrace field crops like maize, wheat, rice, etc., vegetable crops like potatoes, cabbages, etc., and fruits.
Plant breeding is defined as changing the traits of plants in order to produce the desired traits for better nutritional quality. The techniques of plant breeding are selection and propagation of desirable characteristics by interbreeding, back-crossing and so on. The desires traits that plant breeders tried to incorporate in crop plants to improve quality, nutrition, flavour and greater beauty, increase the yield of the crop, increase tolerance of environmental stress such as salinity, extreme temperature, drought. And also for the resistance of microbes, increased tolerance to insect pests, increased tolerance of herbicides, to increase longer storage period for harvesting. Molecular plant breeding techniques involve the application of plant biotechnology or molecular biology.
