On Wednesday, August 7, 2019, the Department of Agronomy and Horticulture held the launching of the book titled Fundamentals of Agronomy by Prof. (Em) Dr. Ir. Sri Setyati Harjadi, M.Sc.
This book is a gateway for students in agriculture study fields to understand the basics of agriculture, with emphasize in agronomy. In this book, there are 3 main points, namely the insight of past and future agriculture, in-depth knowledge of plants and their growing environment (soil, sunlight, climate), and plant cultivation techniques. The author intends to comprehensively embody agronomic knowledge in this book.
This book is very important as a guide for both undergraduate and graduate students in agriculture. We hope that this book is widely useful both for IPB University and other universities for understanding the concepts of agronomy, including maintaining high and sustainable crop production.
