Plant Physiology

Plant science / physiology is concerned with the functioning, or physiology, of plants

Crop physiology is the study of the plant processes responsible for the growth, development, and production of economic yield by crop plants.

Soil management is the application of operations, practices, and treatments to protect soil and enhance its performance. It includes soil conservation, soil amendment, and optimal soil health.

Soil management is an integral part of land management and may focus on differences in soil types and soil characteristics to define specific interventions that are aimed to enhance the soil quality for the land use selected.

Specific soil management practices are needed to protect and conserve the soil resources.
