About Pomology

Plants are grown in order to study them. This is done by observing their growth, examining the plant’s structure and its genetics. The study of plants is an important aspect of botany. Farmers often use plants to grow crops such as fruits and vegetables. Scientists also use plants to study nature and the environment. They do this in order to protect the environment and learn more about what affects it. In addition, researchers use plants to develop new medicines or ways to grow food in space. A person who practices pomology is a botanist or a gardener.

Pomological research can be divided into two main areas: plant breeding and plant pathology. Breeding involves crossing different varieties of plants together in order to create new ones with desirable traits, such as disease resistance or higher yields. It is also used to make sure that seeds will grow into healthy plants with good traits when planted. Pathology, on the other hand, involves studying diseases that affect a particular type of plant or even particular parts of a plant (such as leaves or roots). It can also involve checking if there are any harmful organisms present on a plant’s surface (such as bacteria, fungi or viruses).
