9781616928711: Computational Methods for Agricultural Research: Advances and Applications

Despite currents migration trends towards population centers, agriculture remains one of the most important staples of human culture, as these centers are dependent on a constant food supply.

Computational Methods for Agricultural Research: Advances and Applications brings computing solutions to ancient practices and modern concerns, sowing the seeds for a sustainable, constant food supply. This book treats subjects as old modeling flood patterns and predicting potential climates to distinctly 21st century topics such as pesticide leaching models and the impact of agricultural policy. All of these studies utilize cutting-edge computational techniques of interest to both academics and practitioners in agriculture but also computational modeling researchers, creating a reference practical significance.
