Plant growing manual is intended primarily students of faculties of agricultural higher education institutions, the discipline of plant growing profile worldwide agricultural education and a basic component of agricultural sciences. The manual is addressed equally to all professionals interested in knowing the most important elements of biology, ecology and plant cultivation technology of high culture in Romania.
This manual continues the tradition Plant growing phyto-scale works written in collaboration by teachers of plant growing of the agriculture university centers in Romania, from textbooks and edited by Professors Nicholas treaties Zamfirescu, Velican Vasile Gheorghe currency, Nicholas Saulescu, I. Safta, F. Balance (1959-1960 and 1965), continuing with the manuals developed by Professors George Bîlteanu, Salonta Alexandru Constantin Vasilica, Florea Ciobanu, John Borcean, John Fazecaş, Victor Bârnaure (1979, 1983, 1991) and books written by teachersLeon Sorin Muntean, John Borcean, Michael Axinte, George Valentin Roman (1995, 2001, 2003, 2006).
Large crops (field crops) subject to phyto (cereals, legumes, oilseeds, textiles, tuberculifere, root, tobacco, hops, medicinal and aromatic plants) occupy over 70% of Romania's arable land and have a significant weight between plants grown in the world. They provide much of the necessary products and feeding animals food people, representing an important source of raw materials for production of other goods useful in daily life of human communities.
In drafting textbook authors paid special attention to modern technological measures, high productivity, economic efficiency and without polluting the environment impact, cost and energy consumption reduced. Technologies developed in the manual are based on knowledge of plant biology and ecology elements and consider upgrading the genetic potential of varieties and hybrids are in cultivation. They watched as efficiently capture solar energy and photosynthetic efficiency, biomass production useful consumption of fossil energy balance, chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Were considered and the changes that have occurred in recent decades in agriculture and rural areas of Romania, in the context of transition from centralized economy to a market economy, the changes in the organization of agricultural production and forms of ownership in agriculture, the accession European Union and its gradual integration into the structures.
