About this book

The present dictionary is the first of its kind and contains about 80,000 Russian terms and their English/American equivalents representing the modern level of knowledge in all fields of agriculture, agricultural science and food production. Special attention is devoted to such fundamental branches of agricultural science and agricultural practice as animal husbandry and veternary science, farming agriculture and field grop production, horticulture and growing of specific grops, agoforestry and agricultural reclamation, agrodology and science of the soil improvement, agricultural engineering and farm machinery, agroecology and environmental protection, and economics of agriculture and farm management. The dictionary also reflects the view that modern agriculture and food production are intergrating many biological technologies including molecular genetics, gene engineering, cell and tissue culture, and technical biochemistry.Polysemantic Russian terms are delineated in detail and various meanings are defined with useage labels and brief explanations. The dictionary covers not only nouns but also a fairly broad range of verbs, adjectives, and adverbs, as they are used in modern agricultural scientific-technical literature.
