Nanotechnology in agriculture
This branch of engineering is involved in designing farm machinery, land development, soil management, mechanization and automation of livestock farming. Also, it implicates in efficient planting, harvesting, storage and processing of farm commodities. The main objective of this field is to improve the efficacy and sustainability of agricultural practices.
Precision agriculture is also known as satellite agriculture. Precision agriculture is one of the approach to the farm management which uses information technology (IT) to ensure the crops and soil receive exactly what they need for optimum health and productivity. This method relies upon specialized equipment, software & IT services. This method of approach includes accessing real-time data regarding the conditions of the crops, soil and ambient air along with other relevant information such as hyper-local weather predictions, labor costs and equipment availability.It relies on the specialized equipment, software, and IT services. The main objective of Precision agriculture is to ensure profitability, sustainability, and protection of the environment.
Conservation Agriculture is a set of soil management practices that minimize the disruption of the soil's structure, composition and natural biodiversity. Inspite of high variability in the various crops grown and specific management regimes, these pagriculture share three core principles.
1. Maintenance of permanent or semi-permanent soil cover (using either a previous crop residue or specifically growing a cover crop for this purpose).
2. Minimum soil disturbance through tillage (just enough to get the seed into the ground).
3. Regular crop rotations to help combat the various biotic constraints.
It is a method of approach mainly focuses on maintaining economic stability of farms and helping farmers improve their techniques and quality of life. It is type of agriculture practice focuses on producing long-term crops and livestock while having minimal effects on the environment and tries to find a good balance between the need for food production and the preservation of the ecological system within the environment. Several goals associated with sustainable agriculture includes water conservation, reduction in the use of fertilizers and pesticides and promoting biodiversity in the crops grown and in the ecosystem.
Agronomy is an advanced concept of agriculture which deals with the principles and practices of soil, water & crop management. It has come to encompass work in the areas of plant genetics, plant physiology, meteorology, and soil science. It is the application of a combination of sciences like biology, chemistry, economics, ecology, earth science, and genetics.

The science of Arboriculture studies how trees grow and respond to their environments as well as the techniques used to cultivate them. The practice of arboriculture is executing those techniques used to maintain trees such as selecting which trees to plant, applying fertilizer, spraying to control insects and diseases, cabling and bracing, diagnosing tree ailments, removing trees and pruning.
