Agricultural Chemistry

Agricultural chemistry is a branch of science that studies how to impact chemical and biochemical processes in soil and plants, as well as plant mineral nutrition and the use of fertilizers and other chemical methods to boost fertility and yield. It also covers a variety of different methods for increasing production, such as herbicides and growth stimulants, and serves as the scientific foundation for introducing chemical processes into agriculture. Agricultural chemistry shares goals, techniques, and research issues with both chemical and biological sciences. The relation between plants, animals, and the environment is stressed in agricultural chemistry in order to better the agricultural sector. A biochemist uses strategies to improve the production, protection, and use of animals and crops using their knowledge of biochemistry.
