This full-color introduction to agronomy and crop science offers both traditional agricultural students and students with nonagricultural backgrounds a timely look at the principles of crop science, sustainable agriculture, and a host of related societal issues. A must-read text for anyone interested in what are arguably the most profoundly important issues of our time, INTRODUCTION TO AGRONOMY, second edition addresses the basics of safe and sustainable food and fiber production as well as big picture topics such as energy, ecology, and environmental quality. Throughout the text, readers will find information and illustrations on the latest agricultural methods, regulations, and practices--and how each is impacting our society and each individual within it.
Features
• The text''s simplified, concise presentation of concepts related to crop science, agriculture and environmental quality helps readers understand the crop-based sources of their food and fiber, how the food production system works, and how these topics impact us as individuals.
• The authors highlight the interconnection of food and agriculture--from the food that we consume to crop sources of food--and point out key changes in America''s food consumption patterns.
• The text demonstrates why farming is still one of our most important occupations and why the future of agriculture hinges on the widespread adoption and use of sustainable practices.
• Critical Thinking Questions at the end of each chapter encourage learners to apply concepts discussed in their everyday lives, while Review Questions are provided to reinforce major points covered in the chapter.
