Physical Methods in Agriculture
Approach to Precision and Quality
edited by Jiri Blahovec and Miroslav Kutilek

The papers in this book deal with both the physical theories and their applications in the full broad range of agriculture:

  • soils, their parameters and transport processes
  • soil technology
  • precision agriculture
  • agricultural products and their processing
  • testing and storage and products
  • genetic modification of agricultural plants
