Agronomy is the science and technology of using plants for food, fuel, feed, and
fibre. It encompasses work in the areas of plant genetics, plant physiology,
meteorology, and soil science, and it applies a combination of sciences like
biology, chemistry, ecology, earth science, and genetics. Agronomists today are
involved with many issues, including producing food, creating healthier food,
managing environmental impact of agriculture, and creating energy from plants.
Agronomists often specialize in areas such as crop rotation, irrigation and
drainage, plant breeding, soil classification, soil fertility, weed control, and
insect and pest control.
