  • Agricultural science
    Agricultural science is a broad multidisciplinary field of biology that encompasses the parts of exact, natural, economic and social sciences that are used in the practice and understanding of agriculture.
  • Weed
    A weed is a plant considered undesirable in a particular situation, "a plant in the wrong place".
  • Cherry leaf spot
    Cherry leaf spot is a fungal disease which infects cherries and plums.
  • Roslin Institute
    The Roslin Institute is an animal sciences research institute at Easter Bush, Midlothian, Scotland, part of the University of Edinburgh, that is sponsored by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council.
  • Crop rotation
    Crop rotation is the practice of growing a series of dissimilar or different types of crops in the same area in sequenced seasons.
  • Phytophthora infestans
    Phytophthora infestans is an oomycete that causes the serious potato disease known as late blight or potato blight.
  • Agricultural engineering
    Agricultural engineering in forestry
  • Agricultural chemistry
    Agricultural chemistry is the study of both chemistry and biochemistry which are important in agricultural production, the processing of raw products into foods and beverages, and in environmental monitoring and remediation.
  • Sowing
    Sowing is the process of planting seeds.
  • Plant pathology
    Plant pathology (also phytopathology) is the scientific study of diseases in plants caused by pathogens (infectious organisms) and environmental conditions (physiological factors).
  • Gibberellin
    Gibberellins (GAs) are plant hormones that regulate growth and influence various developmental processes, including stem elongation, germination, dormancy, flowering, sex expression, enzyme induction, and leaf and fruit senescence.
  • Trees for the Future
    Trees for the Future is a Maryland-based nonprofit organization founded in 1989 that helps communities around the world plant trees.
  • Agricultural experiment station
    An agricultural experiment station (AES) is a scientific research center that investigates difficulties and potential improvements to food production and agribusiness.
  • Yin T. Hsieh
    Yin T. Hsieh (Traditional Chinese: 謝英鐸) (Taiwan, 14 April 1929) is a Taiwanese scientist based in Dominican Republic.
  • Institut national de la recherche agronomique
    The Institut national de la recherche agronomique (INRA, pronounced [inʁa]; English: National Institute of Agricultural Research) is a French public research institute dedicated to agricultural science.
  • Central Sheep and Wool Research Institute
    The Central Sheep and Wool Research Institute (ICAR-CSWRI) is an Indian Council of Agricultural Research subsidiary commissioned for research, training and extension activities related to sheep and rabbits.
  • Foundation for Agronomic Research
    The Foundation for Agronomic Research (FAR) is a non-profit (501(c)(3) research and education foundation, created in 1980 by the Board of Directors of the Potash & Phosphate Institute (PPI) to expand its research efforts beyond that possible with PPI’s resources and mandate. The mission of FAR is to improve the economic vigor and sustainability of agriculture in North America and around the world, while protecting and enhancing the environment. FAR works to integrate a broad spectrum of interests and to assemble multi-regional projects with multi-disciplinary research teams.
  • Gene-for-gene relationship
    The gene-for-gene relationship was discovered by the late Harold Henry Flor who was working with rust (Melampsora lini) of flax (Linum usitatissimum).
  • Animal science
    Animal Science (also Animal Bioscience) is described as "studying the biology of animals that are under the control of humankind".
  • Agronomy for Sustainable Development
    Agronomy for Sustainable Development is a peer-reviewed scientific journal covering research on the interactions between cropping systems and other activities in the context of sustainable development.
  • Agricultural geography
    Agricultural geography is a subdiscipline of human geography concerned with agriculture.
  • Beneficial weed
    Although erroneously assumed to compete with neighboring plants for food and moisture, some "weeds" provide the soil with nutrients, either directly or indirectly.
  • Abhayavapi
    Abhayavapi (Sinhalese: අභයවාපි) or commonly Abhaya Wewa (Sinhalese: අභය වැව) is a reservoir built by King Pandukabhaya who ruled in Anuradhapura from 437 BC to 367 BC, after constructing the city.
