Agronomy deals with all aspects of soil, water and crop management to increase the productivity in space and time and has made it possible to generate appropriate technologies for varied agro-climatic situations. It is, therefore, essential that students of agriculture have a good grasp of the subject. Textbooks on basic and applied aspects of agronomy as per the new syllabus recommended by 4th Dean’s Committee of ICAR are lacking. This Textbook on “Agronomy : Basic and Applied” by Dr. Gajendra Singh Tomar, Associate Professor (Agronomy), I.G. Krishi Vishwa Vidyalaya, Raipur (C.G.) is a timely and welcome contribution to fill up this gap. The book is divided into fifteen chapters and covers comprehensively the content of all courses in Agronomy. The author has vast experience in teaching, research and extension activities of agronomy and has presented the subject matter meticulously. This book would prove to very useful for UG and PG students of different SAU’s to understand the principles and modern concepts in Agronomy.
