Eco-friendly Pest Management

Research in this area explores alternative and environmentally friendly methods for controlling pests and diseases in agriculture, reducing the reliance on chemical pesticides.

Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering

This subtopic involves the application of biotechnology tools to modify and improve plants and animals for various agricultural purposes, such as developing drought-resistant crops or disease-resistant livestock.

Biodiversity Conservation

Conservation biology studies aim to protect and sustain the planet’s rich biodiversity, addressing issues like habitat loss, species extinction, and the preservation of ecosystems critical for agriculture and life on Earth.

Soil Health and Nutrient Management

This area delves into maintaining and enhancing soil fertility, minimizing soil erosion, and optimizing nutrient management practices to ensure sustainable agricultural production while preserving soil ecosystems.

These subtopics represent just a fraction of the diverse and dynamic field of Agricultural and Biological Sciences, highlighting the importance of research in addressing pressing global challenges related to agriculture, ecology, and human well-being.
