Significance Of Radiation In Agriculture

The importance of the radiation in crop production is as follow:
1. It provides the necessary energy for all the phenomena concerning biomass   production.
2. Photo synthetically Active Radiations (PAR) are the real source of energy for photosynthesis process. Plants are the efficient biological converters of solar energy into biomass.  Radiation defines the yield of crop in particular region.
3. It laso provides the energy for the physical processes taking place in plants, soil and atmosphere.
4. It conditions the distribution of temperature and hence crop distribution on the earth surface.
