The book consists of 32 chapters featuring the concepts and applications of precision farming
and protected cultivation broadly covered with theoretical and practical approach. The first 8 chapters are
exclusively designed to provide detailed information on concept, need, objectives, benefits, components,
applications and limitations of precision farming; laser leveler and its working mechanism, components
and functioning; mechanized sowing and types of mechanical seeders and their use; approaches for
mapping of soils and plant attributes; site-specific weed and nutrient management; precision management
of insect-pests and diseases; yield mapping in horticultural crops.
An attempt has been made to cover the concept and application of protected cultivation in chapters
from 9 to 30 characteristically highlighting the concept of greenhouse technology, its principles as well as
historical and technological developments, agrivoltaic system, its concept and features, response of plant species
under greenhouse conditions, criteria for the selection of crops and varieties for protected cultivation,
basic considerations for site selection, orientation and designing of greenhouse structures, climate control
mechanisms for cooling and heating in greenhouses, components, accessories and BIS codes for protected
cultivation, types of Irrigation system for greenhouse production system, growing media for greenhouse cultivation, soil pasteurization namely solarization, steam sterilization, chemical sterilization and
augmentation with biological agents, checking the suitability of soil and water for greenhouse crops, plug
tray nursery raising, basics of fertigation in greenhouse production system, packages of practice for
greenhouse cucumber, bell pepper, tomato and melons, potential of pruning as unconventional alternative
for mass multiplication of greenhouse cucumber and tomato, types of soil-less cultures, GAP for
protected cultivation and economic analysis of protected cultivation.
Note: T&F does not sell or distribute the Hardback in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
