Agronomy

All about agronomy

What is Agronomy

Agronomy is the science of producing and using plants for food, fiber, and fuel. Agronomy has come to improve work in the areas of plant genetics, plant physiology, meteorology, and soil science.

Genetically modified food

Agronomy is also making genetically modified food that is more healthy for you. Some people don't approve of genetically modified food because they think it's not healthy and is bad for you but some people also agree. Agronomy also helps water be more clean.

Chemical Vs Mechanical

Chemical weathering is the erosion of rocks that are caused by chemical reactions. Mechanical weathering is when the weather makes rock break down into something else. Here's an example, there is wind that is blowing on a mountain and some rocks fall off the mountain into somethings else, that would be called mechanical weathering.

Soil

There is a lot of stuff in soil. There's humus which a type of mineral that is made out of dead animals and plants. Soil also has water and air in it. The layers of soil is, humus, topsoil, subsoil, parent material, bedrock. The texture of soil is gravel, sand, silt and clay.

How soil is formed

It takes a long time to make soil naturally. There are five thing that make soil. Those five thing would be, time, climate, parent material, topography and relief. Soil can be formed anywhere if it has those five factors.

Remote Sensing

Remote sensing is a type of way to study the earth. You have to have a satellite and scan the earth and see what is happening to the earth.

Why do we need soil?

We need soil so plants can grow because soil has nutrients in it that plants need to grow and then those plants give out oxygen that we need so we can live. We also need soil for food.

Common misuses of soil

There are a lot of common misuses of soil. People try to experiment with soil and then when they fail they just throw the soil away. People also use it and then just live it in there yard to die. People don't know how much there harming the earth by doing that.

How agronomy can help the world

Agronomy can help by making the world more healthy and also making the food and water more healthy. Agronomy can help the earth live longer and help make more food for people that is healthy.
