By Stanislaw Grundas and Andrzej Stepniewski

The belief of this ebook was once born a result of swift raise of the curiosity in excellence of agricultural construction within the point of either – the standard of uncooked fabric for nutrients creation in addition to within the element of setting security. Agrophysics is a box of technological know-how that makes a speciality of the standard of agriculture as a complete i.e. the interplay among human and surroundings, particularly the interplay among soil, plant, surroundings and desktop. Physics with its legislation, rules and principles is an effective device for description of the interactions, in addition to of the result of those interactions. a few elements of chemistry, biology and different fields of technological know-how also are taken into account. This interdisciplinary strategy can lead to holistic description of approaches which should still bring about development of the potency of acquiring the uncooked fabrics to make sure a adequate volume of nutrition, secure for human wellbeing and fitness. This booklet will be considered as the contribution to this description. The reader can locate a few uncomplicated in addition, as extra specific facets of the modern agriculture, beginning with the soil features and remedy, plant progress and agricultural items’ homes and processing.

There are two plat‐ inum electrodes placed in the titration cell. In the so called bipotentiometric technique, a constant current is maintained on the electrodes and the voltage is monitored. In the biam‐ perometric variation, the voltage is kept constant and the current is measured. When all the 25 26 Advances in Agrophysical Research water is consumed, the redox reactions between iodine and iodide ions occur, what causes an abrupt rise of current (biamperometric technique) or a sudden drop of voltage (bipoten‐ tiometric technique).

Weather prediction on the base of atmospheric parameters including barometric pressure, tempera‐ ture and air humidity will be more accurate after including soil parameters, like moisture in soil profiles and temperature distribution in the soil. , 2010). , 2011). Monitoring of soil temperature, which is one of the most important physical parameter apart from water content or water matrix potential, is not a technical problem. There are var‐ ious temperature sensors available including electronic ones that enable automatic measure‐ ment.
