The Plant Physiology studies how the plant functions in its environment, and then uses this knowledge to establish crop management alternatives for increased economic yield and environmental friendliness. They also use this information to establish screening procedures to be used in varietal improvement.
Knowledge of plant metabolic processes is essential to have a clear insight about the science involved in agriculture. Realizing this need a separate department of plant physiology was carved out from agricultural botany. The crop physiology offering 3 courses for Bsc (Hons) Ag. Viz, Cphy-162, Cphy261, and Cphy-361 with 7 credit hours. Department teaches about the plant metabolic processes, effect of environmental factors on plant growth development and low environmental pollution affect the crop health. Totally the department deals with internal process of plant.
