The term agronomy relates to the science and technology which produce and use plants for food, fuel, fibre and land reclamation. Agronomy includes other disciplines including plant genetics, plant psychology, meteorology and soil science. As well as this, the discipline is a combination of sciences such as biology, economics, chemistry, earth science and genetics.
Nowadays, agronomists focus on different issues such as producing food, managing the impact that agriculture has on the environment, creating healthier food and extracting energy from plants. As well as this, these scientists are usually specialised in areas such as crop rotation, plant breeding, irrigation and drainage, soil classification, soil fertility, weed control, and insects and pest control.
Crop production is a branch of agriculture which focuses on the growth of the crops for food and fibre use. Crop production includes different type of grains, cotton, tobacco, vegetables, fruits and nuts. As well as this, crops are cultivated in different areas as some climates are more favourable for specific crops rather than others.
