Instrumentation and Computation
Instruments have become an indispensible part of modern scientific research; may it be laboratory/field research, use of one or more instruments is inevitable. The knowledge of instruments about their function, principle, and safety measure during use is an essential part of research activities. Thousands of instruments with their variants are being put into use in research. Everyday a number of new instruments are being invented and dedicated for the betterment of the humanity. One can hardly provide description of all these instruments at any point of time. In this chapter, our attempt will remain to provide a brief description of some of the mostly used instruments in agriculture and allied fields. It must clearly be noted that this attempt is neither exhaustive nor any effort to list the instruments. The following table gives a glimpse of few instruments used.
