Agricultural geography is defined as the study of the geographical and locational attributes, patterns, and processes of crop and animal farming, and related subjects such as farm land, farm-associated human geographers, environmental issues, and theoretical works on the location of agricultural activities. Agricultural Geography provides the basic information of various types of the agriculture on the earth surface viz., subsistence, commercial, horticulture, specialised etc. Agricultural Geography is a sub-discipline of human and economic geography. The geography of human activities is called as ‘economic geography’ which examines the primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary activities of man. The study of agricultural geography is of great social relevance among all the branches of human geography. The text provides an extensive guide through this diverse and increasingly important geographical subject, aiming to show that a wide range of factors explain how agricultural practices differ from place to place. Dealing with the physical environment, economic behaviour and demands, institutional and social influences and the impact of farming upon the environment, the author has produced an important introductory text that is topical, incisive and ultimately essential to reach an understanding of the remarkable diversity of the world’s major industry.
