Sessions/Tracks

Agriculture Engineering 

Agricultural Engineering is leading to create a new revolution in sustainable agriculture which is totally eco-friendly. By the middle of the 20th era, Agricultural Engineering derives into four types of activity like Power and machinery, Irrigation and drainage, Farm constructions and environment, Processing and electrification. Most Agricultural Engineering is aware of organic engineering, well-organized use of irrigation water, renewable energy, and environmental issues. Agricultural Engineering is fronting three great encounters: Food safety and Food security, protecting the species and natural resources and decreased employment status.

Agricultural Engineering is focused on engineering skills and technologies that take a tough approach to present complications. Food security and crop production will be much stronger if Agricultural Engineering can be developed appropriately.

Agricultural Production Systems  & Agribusiness 

Agriculture focuses on the topic agribusiness. Agribusiness is the business of agricultural production. It includes agrichemicals, breeding, crop circulation, farm machinery, processing, and seed accumulation, as well as marketing and retail sales. All agents of the food and fiber value chain and those institutions that influence it are part of the agribusiness system.

Within the agriculture industry, "agribusiness" is used easily as a valise of agriculture and business, attributing to the range of activities and disciplines encompassed by novel food production. There are academic degrees in and departments of agribusiness, agribusiness trade associations, agribusiness publications, and so forth, worldwide.

Agriculture event intimate Agricultural productivity is measured as the ratio of agricultural outputs to agricultural inputs. While individual products are usually measured by weight, their varying densities make measuring overall agricultural output difficult. Therefore, the output is sully measured as the market value of final turn out, which swill intermediate products such as corn feed used in the meat industry. This output value may be compared to many various types of inputs such as labor and land (yield). These are called partial measures of productivity. Agriculture conference imparts an opportunity to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of Agricultural Production Systems.

Agriculture and Environment

Agriculture focusses on the environmental impact of agriculture varies based on the wide variety of agricultural practices employed around the world. Ultimately, the environmental impact depends on the production practices of the system used by farmers. The connection between radiation into the environment and the farming structure is incorrect, as it also depends on other climate fribbles such as rainfall and temperature.

The environmental impact of agriculture contains various factors from the soil to water, the air, animal and soil diversity. Some of the environmental matter that is connected to agriculture are atmospheric conditions change, deforestation, soil degradation, and waste. Agriculture conference accommodates opportunity to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of Agriculture and Environment.

Agricultural Biotechnology

Agriculture focusses on Agricultural Biotechnology is the combination of scientific tools and techniques including genetic engineering, molecular markers, molecular diagnostics, vaccines, and tissue culture to modify agricultural productivity, quality, diversity and species protection. Agricultural Biotechnology is developed to cope up with current challenges which are usually cannot be solved by traditional practices. Agricultural Biotechnology also helps in climate adaptation, stress management, and disease management. Biotechnology has introduced modern technologies to deal with the global food crisis. Agriculture conference provides an opportunity to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of Agricultural Biotechnology.

Greenhouse & Horticulture

Greenhouse is a shape with walls and roof made largely of transparent material, such as glass, in which plants requiring managed climatic conditions are grown. These structures range in size from small sheds to industrial-sized buildings. A miniature greenhouse is known as a cold frame. The interior part of a greenhouse exposed towards the sunlight becomes extremely warmer than external temperature. The primary crops grown in greenhouses include pepper, tomato, cucumber, lettuce, herbs, and strawberry. 

Agriculture event focusses on horticulture that deals with the art, science, technology, and business of fruits, vegetables, flowers and ornamental plants. It includes production, improvement, marketing and scientific analysis of medicinal plant, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, herbs, sprouts, mushrooms, algae, flowers, seaweeds and non-food crops such as grass and ornamental trees and plants. It also deals with species conservation, landscape restoration, landscape and garden design, management, and maintenance, research, and marketing. Horticulturists apply their knowledge, skills, and technologies to grow plants for human food and non-food uses like the garden or landscape design, decorations etc. Their field also involves plant propagation and tissue culture to improve plant growth, diversification, quality, nutritional value, and resistance and adaptation strength to environmental stresses. Agriculture conference gives an opportunity to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and latest developments in the field of Horticulture and its related field.

Agronomy and Crop Science

Agronomy is the Science of production and utilization of plants for multidisciplinary use along with soil, crop and water managementAgronomy related to work in the areas of plant genetics, plant physiology, Agrometeorology, and soil science. Agronomy is the application of combined sciences like biology, chemistry, economics, ecology, earth science, and genetics. Agronomy is now an important research field for scientists to study the behavior of plant in different environmental conditions including climate, soil type and irrigation, fertilization etc. 

Crop Science and Technology is the area handle with the Selection, Breeding, Crop productivity, Seed production, Organic crops, Crop technology transpiration, Field crops research, and Crop and Irrigation technology. Crop science deals with food, feed, turf, and fiber crops and their management. It is a broad field includes breeding, genetics, production, and management of crops and animal feed. Crop science also takes part in supervision and viable use of genetic resources of plants, insects, and other invertebrates, and microorganisms

Agroforestry & Landscaping

Agriculture focusses on Utilization & Potential Utilization - Agroforestry is an intensive study on a land management system that benefits biological interactions between forest trees or shrubs and agricultural crops and/or livestock. Agroforestry helps to conserve species diversity and protect natural resources, reduce pollution, control soil erosion, and enhance wildlife biodiversity. The benefits of agroforestry comprise enhancement of the growth of agro-economy and reserves sustainability. Agroforestry practices also influence agroecosystem and diversification of endangered crop species. The best research need is to develop farm-level analyzes to increase economic costs, benefits which may reduce risks associated with agroforestry and boost the price of products.  Agriculture conference gives an opportunity to researchers and scientist to analyze the modern and latest research growths in the direction of Agriculture & Forestry.

Agriculture and Food Science Education

Agriculture Education is the teaching of agriculture, natural resources, and land management through hands-on experience and guidance to prepare students for entry-level jobs or to further education to prepare them for advanced agricultural jobs. Classes that may be taught in an agricultural education curriculum include horticulture, land management, turf grass management, agricultural science, small animal care, machine and shop classes, health and nutrition, livestock management, biology courses, etc. Agricultural education can be taught at the elementary level, middle school level, secondary, post-secondary and adult levels. Elementary agriculture is taught in public schools and private schools and deals with such subjects as how plants and animals grow and how soil is farmed and conserved. Vocational agriculture trains people for jobs in such areas as production, marketing, and conservation. College agriculture involves training of people to teach, conduct research, or provide information to advance the field of agriculture and food science in other ways. General education agriculture informs the public about food and agriculture.

Robotics in Food Science and Agriculture

Agricultural and food robots or agbot is a robot deployed for agricultural purposes. The main area of application of robots in agriculture today is at the harvesting stage. Emerging applications of robots or drones in agriculture include weed control, cloud seeding, planting seeds, harvesting, environmental  monitoring and soil analysis

Food Engineering

Food Engineering is a branch of Food Sciences which deals with the microbiology, applied physical sciences, chemistry for food and related industries. The development of the new product, modern technologies in the preservation of the food and maintenance of the food has been derived from the Food Engineering and Sciences. It provides a valuable platform for the Food Engineers to establish their views on crop development.

Food Marketing

Food marketing brings together the food producer and the consumer through a chain of marketing activities. The marketing of even a single food product can be a complicated process involving many producers and companies. For example, fifty-six companies are involved in making one can of chicken noodle soup. These businesses include not only chicken and vegetable processors but also the companies that transport the ingredients and those who print labels and manufacture cans. The food marketing system is the largest direct and indirect nongovernment employer in the United States.

Food Science & Chemistry

Food Science is a combined derivative of Food Chemistry, Technology, Nutrition, Microbiology and Engineering to give one the scientific knowledge to solve the associated problems related to Food products. Wherein, the Food Chemistry is a branch of Food Science which studies the chemical process, interactions of biological and non-biological food, fermentation procedure and dehydration. It includes compounds such as carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and fats with the combination of water, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, food additives to control the food being contaminated and toxified.

Food Science & Technology

Food the most needed element in one’s life to be alive. The stuff we get from plants, animals, glucose, milk, vegetables, proteins so on is just the food we intake. The technology is the science which aids in the preparations of the food with all the stuff we get. The technology even aids in the preservation and storage processes. Modern food technology has emerged in such a way that has decreased the human work pressure. The modulations in the genomics of the food, applications of the nanotechnology for a greater production have been some valuable food technologies.

Food & Nutrients

Agriculture focusses on the subject Food & Nutrients. Although many people think that food and nutrition mean the same thing, they don’t. Food refers to the plants and animals we consume. These foods contain the energy and nutrients our bodies need to maintain life and support growth and health. Nutrition, in contrast, is a science. Specifically, it is the science that studies food and how food nourishes our bodies and influences our health. It identifies the processes by which we consume, digest, metabolize, and store the nutrients in foods, and how these nutrients affect our bodies. Nutrition also pays attention to the factors that influence our eating patterns, and also make recommendations about the amount of food we eat and the type of food, and addressing issues related to the global food supply. When compared with other scientific disciplines such as chemistry, biology, and physics, nutrition is a relative newcomer. The cultivation, preservation, and preparation of food have played a critical role in the lives of humans for millennia, but in the West, the recognition of nutrition as an important contributor to health has developed slowly only during the past 400 years.

Food  Nanotechnology  

Food nanotechnology is a branch of nanotechnology concerned with the application of nanotechnology to food or food packaging so as to extend the life or safety of food, to detect harmful bacteria, or to produce stronger flavors. Nanotechnology has begun to find potential uses around functional food by engineering biological molecules toward functions various from those they have in nature, opening a whole new area of development. When nanotechnology or its application or Nanomachine is used during production, cultivation, processing or packaging of food then the food is called as Nanofood. It does not mean that atomically modified food or food made by Nanomachines.

Medicinal Food

The foods that are formulated and intended for a diet management of a disease that has unique nutritional needs that cannot be met by a normal diet chart are considered as medical food. The food which has an ability to cure the disease or control the cause of a disease is known as medicinal food. Tulsi, turmeric, rosemary, ginger, manuka honey are considered to be the top medicinal food curing and controlling the chronic diseases from time.

Fertilizer and Pesticide

Agriculture conference focusses on fertilizer which is any material of natural or synthetic origin that is applied to soils or to plants tissues to supply one or more plant nutrients essential to the growth of plants. Fertilizers enhance the growth of plants. This goal is met in two ways, the traditional one being additives that provide nutrients. The second mode by which some fertilizers act is to enhance the effectiveness of the soil by modifying its water retention and aeration.

Pesticides are substances meant for attracting, seducing, and then destroying, or mitigating any pest. They are a class of biocide. The most common use of pesticides is as plant protection products (also known as crop protection products), which in general protect plants from damaging influences such as weeds, plant diseases or insects. This use of pesticides is so common that the term pesticide is often treated as synonymous with plant protection product, although it is, in fact, a broader term, as pesticides are also used for non-agricultural purposes. Agriculture conference provides an opportunity to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of Fertilizer and Pesticide.

Food-related Chronic Diseases

Chronic diseases are long-lasting diseases that are not contagious and preventable. Hunger and malnutrition are the most traumatic problems faced by the poorest countries, often leading to physical or mental disorder or even death. Malnutrition leads to the chronic conditions like obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, and cancer.

Aquaculture

 Aquaculture is the farming of fish, crustaceans, mollusks, aquatic plants, algae, and other aquatic organisms. Aquaculture involves cultivating freshwater and saltwater populations under controlled conditions and can be contrasted with commercial fishing, which is the harvesting of wild fish. It is less commonly spelled aquiculture), and is also known as aqua farming. Mariculture refers to aquaculture practiced in marine environments and in underwater habitats.

Plant Science

Agriculture focusses on the subject Plant Science. Plant cells are immobile, encased in a fixed cell wall. Unlike animal cells, migration and programmed cell death play less role in the patterning of plant cells fates, nor can they move when their environment changes. If the supply of food is less or if there is a predator, animals can move, fight or fly. But plants cannot. They have to adapt constantly to their environment and their development is highly plastic. Development of the animal is mostly embryonic. The shape of the body is defined during embryogenesis and the adult derive from the enlargement of the embryo. In contrast, in plants, most of the development takes place post-embryonically and never ceases. In fact, because plants can't escape from their physical locations, they adapt and "escape" through development. When there is a lack of nutrients or energy, the plant develops its root system to explore the ground or its aerial system to get some light. Under attack from a pathogen or herbivore, the plant is able to synthesize signaling molecules to change its development and defend itself.

Soil Science

Agriculture focusses on soil which provides ecosystem necessary for plants and animal life. Soil acts as a base medium provide habitat, water, and nutrition to living organisms. The soil is used as a holding and interacting facility for nutrients, microorganisms, plants, and water. The soil is responsible for Agroecosystems and Eco-agriculture which indirectly help in food security. Soil purifies groundwater, provides nutrients, help in the growth of plants and regulate the Earth's temperature. Industrial, household and non-point source pollution negatively influence soil environment and finally the whole ecosystem. In recent decades, scientists have developed new practices which limit the mobility of contaminants which reduce pollution. Agriculture conference gives a chance to researchers and scientist to explore the latest and modern developments in the field of Soil Sciences and its related technology.

 

 

 

 

 

Market Analysis

IMPORTANCE AND SCOPE:

Agriculture is the backbone of Economic System. Most countries have an economy that is dependent on agriculture – either in a small or big way. From employment generation to contribution to National Income, agriculture is important. Agriculture as a concept has grown as well. A decade or two back, it was associated solely with the production of basic crops. Modern agriculture includes forestry, bee keeping, fruit cultivation, poultry, and even dairy farming. Webster’s Dictionary says, “Agriculture is the art or science of production of crops and livestock on farm.”                                 

Food processing and science have evolved to make food the basis of a healthy civilization, help society overcome hunger and disease, and improve safety, nutrition, convenience, affordability and availability of foods. The world has progressed through hunter-gatherer, agricultural, and industrial stages to being a provider of goods and services.  Along the way, our reliance on a stable food supply has increased dramatically.  This started with the domestication of plants and animals in order to feed our ever growing population which has now reach nearly 7 billion! The majority of the populations are no longer connected to their food nor are they familiar with general agriculture production practices that make food so readily available.  Funny how things always seem back to agriculture. The commitment of food science and technology professionals is to advance the science of food, all the while ensuring a safe and abundant food supply and contributing to a healthier people everywhere.  The research involved with the food industry encompasses many different disciplines including but not limited to the American farmer, biotechnologists, chemists, geneticists, microbiologists, nutritionists, sensory scientists all the way down to grocers.

Proverbially, India is known as “Land of Villages”. Near about 67% of India’s population live in villages. The occupation of villagers is agriculture. Agriculture is the dominant sector of our economy & contributes in various ways such as:

  • National Economy
  • Total Employment
  • Industrial Inputs
  • Food Supply
  • State Revenue
  • Trade

Why Richmond, Virginia?

Agriculture is an important part of Richmond’s history. Early settlers were attracted to Richmond by the fertile soils of Lulu and Sea Islands and promise of agricultural productivity. Over the years, Richmond has grown and evolved into a vibrant, cosmopolitan urban Centre. Despite the dramatic changes, a significant portion of Richmond’s land area remains agricultural. Today, agriculture forms an important part of the local and regional economy as well as a major land use in the city. Approximately 4,993 ha (12,338 ac) of Richmond’s land base, or 39% of the City, is within the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). The total amount of area within the ALR and area zoned Agriculture outside of the ALR is approximately 5,563 ha (13,746 ac). The 211 farms that reported in the 2011 Census of Agriculture recorded gross farm receipts of $48.6 million. This is an increase from the $40.5 million of gross farm receipts reported by 172 farms in 2006 and $37.6 million of gross farm receipts reported by 182 farms in 2001.

Global Agriculture Market Analysis:

The rapid escalation of food demand due to the growing population worldwide is boosting the demand for smart agriculture. The smart agriculture engages advanced technologies such as Big Data, GPS, IoT and connected devices. Smart agriculture helps in automated farming, collection of data from the field and then analyses it so that the farmer can make accurate decision in order to grow high quality crop. The field data are collected with the help of sensors, cameras, micro controllers, and actuators. Then the collected data are transferred via internet to the operator or the farmer for decision making. Geographically, the smart agriculture market is categorized as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America. Asia Pacific is the fastest growing region in the global smart agriculture market during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025. North America held the largest market share in 2016 in the market for smart agriculture. Asia Pacific is the fastest growing region in the global smart agriculture market during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025

American Agriculture Market:

The major industry which is a net exporter of food in the United States is Agriculture.  As of the 2007 census of agriculture, there were 2.2 million farms, covering an area of 922 million acres (3,730,000 km2), an average of 418 acres (169 hectares) per farm. Although agricultural activity occurs in all states, it is particularly concentrated in the Great Plains, a vast expanse of flat, arable land in the center of the United States and in the region around the Great Lakes known as the Corn Belt.

The United States was a leader in seed improvement i.e. hybridization and in expanding uses for crops from the work of George Washington Carver to the development of bio plastics and biofuels. The mechanization of farming and intensive farming have been major themes in U.S. History, including John Deere's steel plow, Cyrus McCormick's mechanical reaper, Eli Whitney's cotton gin to the widespread success of the Fordson tractor and the combine harvesters first made from them. Modern agriculture in the U.S. ranges from the common hobby farms, small-scale producers to large commercial farming covering thousands of acres of cropland or rangeland.
