Recent Systematic Approaches in Agrotechnology


Since 2012, the open-access journal Agrotechnology has published articles that have undergone peer review. The Journal discusses a range of agrotechnology topics, such as watersheds, nutrient management technology, weather forecasting, technologies to combat abiotic stress, crop selection, land reclamation and remediation technology, recycling of organic components, agrometeorology, nursery management, agroforestry, agro-hydro modelling, dry land farming, and more. The magazine focuses on disseminating latest innovations and breakthroughs in management technology, resource conservation, agricultural production, and development as well as concepts and approaches for sustainable development.

Climate change, crop modelling, supplemental irrigation, adaptation strategy, yield sustainability, irrigation water stress, and water usage efficiency were among the subjects covered in the issues published this year. The agriculture industry is immediately and significantly affected by climate change. Crop management is now crucial for maintaining food output. Based on the daily meteorological variables such as rainfall, maximum temperature, lowest temperature, and sun radiation observed over the previous few years, this study examines the influence of climate change and management choices for sorghum crop productivity. The authors assessed the influence of supplemental irrigation as a management option on sorghum productivity in the semiarid environment as well as simulated the phenology, growth, and yield of sorghum to forecast the impact of predicted climate change on sorghum output.

The study showed that the grain yield of sorghum increased significantly as predicted, and that in future climate conditions, the grain yield of sorghum could be significantly increased using supplemental irrigation and long maturing cultivars. This higher grain yield of the long maturing cultivar was related to the rise in rainfall. On the other side, it was anticipated that the high temperatures would have an impact on crops by accelerating their developmental and growth phases and shortening their life cycles, leading to cultivars that mature quickly. Climate change is defined as an increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, a rise in global average temperature, and a shift in the frequency of natural disasters like floods and droughts. Water supplies, crop production, livestock, and the dispersal of agricultural diseases and pests are all impacted by these changes. Due to the dependence of 80% of the population on rainfed agriculture and its dispersed geographic location is severely impacted by climate change. Agriculture: The effects of climate change on agricultural production and related management alternatives.

They have stressed how changes in the environment affect the growing season, which has an impact on food security. Technology development, technology adoption, governmental initiatives, crop insurance, altered agricultural methods, reforestation, agroforestry, soil and water conservation, and land rehabilitation are a few examples of adaption measures. According to the review, crop production is impacted by climate change directly by how their biophysical development is affected, indirectly by how crop yields are affected, indirectly by how heat and water stress are caused, and ultimately by how long the growing season lasts. This analysis is useful for coming up with practical solutions to mitigate the effects of climate change and raise the economic standing of those who depend on agriculture and agricultural resources.
