Academic Questions in Agricultural Science
A female chicken less than one year old is referred to as a _____.
Small plants that grow via vegetative propagation from the parent plants are called _____.
The female part of the flower comprising the stigma, style and ovary is the _____.
Which of the following food is best preserved through pasteurization?
The total number of parasites that are present in a host organism is termed _____.
All plants are crops.
TRUE or FALSE
This is a continuation of the agricultural terms and definitions for letters "P and Q".
This is the accumulation of plant’s leaves, twigs, bark, stem, branches, fruits, seeds, flowers and other plant parts on the surface of the soil.
This is a very large area of agricultural land on which one type of crop may be established through planting.
Examples of plantations are cotton plantations, tobacco plantation, sugar cane plantations and so on.
These are small plants or young plants that grows via vegetative propagation from the parent plant.
Note: Vegetative propagation is a form of asexual reproduction in plants.
These are recombinant antibodies that are produced from genetically modified crops.
This is the shrinking of a living plant cell, animal cell or bacteria cell as a result of water loss from the cell cytoplasm to its environment; due to an outward osmotic water flow.
These are trees in which their outward appearance are much bigger when compared to an average tree of the same species grown on a similar area of land.
Such plus trees may also be pest and disease resistant.
Pollen (Pollen Grains)
This is the male germ cell or gametophytes (or sex cell) in plants.
Pollen grains are present in the anther of a flower.
This is the fall of large amount of pollen grains and spores on a particular area.
Pollination is the transfer of pollen (male gametes) from the anther of a flower to the stigma of a flower.
Pollination is of two types:
- Self Pollination: This is the transfer of pollen grain from the anther of a flower to the stigma (of the same flower or another flower) of the same plant.
- Cross Pollination: This is the transfer of pollen grain from the anther of a flower to the stigma of another flower on a different plant. Cross pollination may be brought about by wind, water and insects.
This is a branch of botany that deals with the science or study of growing and cultivating fruit.
Postharvest Food Safety
This is the process of ensuring that food products from farmland are fit for human consumption.
The includes various processes like disease control, ripening initiation, preservation techniques, packing and grading of harvested crop in order to make them fresh for marketing and processing.
A poult is a young turkey of either sex and usually not more than two months of age.
Poultry consist of domestic birds raised for meat and eggs.
This is the process in which large quantities of fruits or vegetables are rapidly cooled prior to loading for shipment.
This is a soil in which the chemical, physical, and biological conditions are ideal for the economic production of certain crops in a given area.
This is the initial and natural development of the vegetation (usually plants or lichens) on a bare or barren area.
Note: Lichen is a symbiotic association between algae and fungi.
A pullet is a female chicken less than 1 year old.
This is an acute disease caused from infected dust and passed into cattle, sheep, goats and domestic animals.
The bacteria Coxiella burnetti present within these domestic animals are responsible for Q fever.

Amazing facts in Agricultural Science
Although plants neither see nor hear, they can recognize their siblings and even give them preferential treatments 🤔
Squirrels do plant more 🌲 trees 🌲 (through their actions) than an average human in their lifetime. They often hide their acorns and nuts underground and forget about them 😁
🐄 Cows 🐄 have got the ability to walk up stairs, but not down stairs
A group of cows 🐄 🐄 🐄 is called a team, drove or herd.
People just prefer to call them herd
NOTABLE POINTS IN Agricultural Science
There are about 630 different kinds of carnivorous plants.
Carnivorous plants are plants that derive some or most of their nutrients by consuming small animals, especially insects.
Carnivorous plants are also referred to as insectivorous plants.
Some example of carnivorous plants include sundew and Venus flytrap.
