Sessions/Tracks

Track 1:Agriculture production system

Agriculture conference focusses on the agricultural production system. It includes crop production systems these systems vary depending on the availability of resources. Shifting cultivation is the system in which forests are burnt releasing nutrients which are used to support annual and perennial crops. The agriculture products are cereals, vegetables, milk, meat etc., It also include Livestock production systems It is an assemblage of components which are united by some form of interaction and interdependence and which operate within a prescribed boundary and a specified agricultural objective can be achieved on behalf of the beneficiaries of the system. Farmers have slowly learned the art of manuring or tending practices to grow plants and develop their agriculture systems at one time the 'organic' approach using crop rotation, manures and some mineral fertilizers, appeared to be the only dominant method. However, during the last two years a number of methods came to assist in growing and fertilizing plants. Agriculture production systems have chosen to describe different approaches that farmers can use to increase the production of plants and manipulate agriculture systems.

Track 2: Energy and Agriculture

Agriculture conference focusses on the subject energy and agriculture. Agriculture  and energy go hand in hand. From the production of fertilizers to the processing and transport of food products to market, fossil fuels are mainly useful to keep industrialized agriculture in business. And increasingly, traditional food crops are being diverted to energy production, primarily turning corn into ethanol. Food and energy are connected. Agriculture is itself an energy conversion process, namely the conversion of solar energy through photosynthesis to food energy for humans and feed for animals. Initially, agriculture began scattering seeds on the land and accepting the scanty yields that resulted. Modern agriculture requires an energy input at every stage of agricultural production such as direct sources of energy were used in farm machinery, water management, irrigation, cultivation and harvesting. Post-harvest energy use includes energy for food processing, storage and in transport to markets. The data for energy use in agriculture also exclude the energy required for food processing and transport by agro-industries. Estimates of these activities range up to twice the energy reported solely in agriculture. Agriculture conference provides an opportunity to researchers and scientists to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of Energy and Agriculture.

Track 3:Agriculture law and policy

Agriculture conference describes a set of laws pertaining to domestic agriculture and business of foreign agricultural products, affecting the farming and ranching industries. It includes the use of pesticides, land use and zoning, environmental issues, and patents on genetically modified seeds. It can also affect small family farms as well as large commercial farming operations. Agricultural policy describes a set of laws relating to imports and domestic agriculture of foreign agriculture products. The main aim of agriculture policy is to achieve a specific outcome in domestic agricultural products in market like guaranteed supply level, price stability, product selection, product quality, land use or employment. Commercial agricultural operations include many areas such as secured transactions, sale of goods, leasing, commercial law, contract law, and commodity futures trading. Agriculture conference provides an opportunity to researchers and scientists to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of Agriculture law and policy.

Track 4: Horticulture

Agriculture conference focusses on Horticulture that include all products, raw or processed, that arise from horticultural industry. Products from horticultural industry that go to market still respiring are clear. When it becomes a major ingredient of another manufactured item the categorization becomes more complex. Horticultural professionals apply their knowledge of plant science to a variety of industries in numerous fields, such as crop management, gardening, production, marketing, research and landscape design. Horticulturalists who work in research study plant growth and develop new methods of harvesting. Agriculture conference provides an opportunity to researchers and scientists to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of Horticulture.

Track 5: Organic Farming

Agriculture conference focusses on Organic Farming it is a method of crop and livestock production that involves much more than choosing not to use pesticides, fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, antibiotics and growth hormones. Organic Farming can be explained as agriculture farming because it followed techniques like crop rotation, green manure, biological pest control. so organic agriculture is enforced in many nations is because it minimizes the use of various harmful chemicals that have hazardous effects on crops in the field Organic farming is developing rapidly. According to the latest survey on organic farming, almost 3.4million hectares are managed organically by more than 700,000 farmers. In 2001 to 2011 this demand has increased in organically managed farmland to 8.9% per annum.  As of 2011, approximately 37,000,000 hectares (91,000,000 acres) worldwide were farmed organically, representing approximately 0.9 percent of total world farmland. Agriculture conference provides an opportunity to researchers and scientists to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of Organic farming.

Track 6: Fertilizer and pesticide

Agriculture conference focusses on fertilizer and pesticide. Fertilizers are compounds that are added to plants to promote growth. They are organic and inorganic. The purpose of fertilizers is to supply nutrients, fertility to the soil to satisfy the demand of crops with high yield and compensate the nutrient by harvested crops. Inorganic fertilizers contain simple inorganic chemicals. Fertilizers contain nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. Fertilizers help in plant growth, pesticides work as a safeguard against pests. The substance designed for preventing, destroying, repelling or decreasing the damage of pest is a pesticide. Pesticides may be made of a chemical substance or a biological agent such as a virus, bacteria, pest repelling weeds and fish, pest eating insects, birds and mammals. In this section, pesticides refer only to those pesticides that include chemical substances such as phosphamidon, lindane, chlorpyrifos, heptachlor and Malathion. Many pesticides are known to be poisonous to humans. Conservative estimates report 30 to 50% of crop yields are attributed to natural or synthetic commercial fertilizer.

Market Analysis

Theme:  “To Create and Disseminate the Knowledge of Agriculture & Horticulture”.

Agriculture is a predominant industry in China, employing over 300 million farmers and ranks first in worldwide farm output primarily produces rice, wheat, tomato, sorghum, peanuts, tea, millet, barley, cotton. Oilseeds and soyabeans. In about 618 BC, it began with classical millet agriculture, and China's development of farming over the course of its history played a key role in supporting the growth of what is now the largest population in the world. 

The developing status of China and its severe shortage of arable land, farming has always been very labor-intensive. However, throughout its history, various methods have been developed and imported which enabled efficient farming production and efficiency. They also utilized the seed drill to help improve on row farming.

Although China's agricultural output is the largest in the world, only about 15% of its total land area can be cultivated. The arable land, which represents 10% of the total arable land in the world, supports over 20% of the world's population

Rice is main the crop produced in China and is raised on about 25% of the cultivated area followed by Wheat, Corn and Millet. During the years 2010-2014, China was the world’s leading paddy rice producer, followed by India and Indonesia. Other major rice exporting nations included Thailand, India, and Vietnam with around 9.5, 9.5 and 7 million metric tons, respectively. The largest rice importers were China and Nigeria in 2015/2016. 

OVERVIEW OF AGRICULTURE IN ASIA PACIFIC COUNTRIES:

The demand of agriculture combined strongly with growing global supply constraints is driving an enormous opportunity for agricultural trade and with many developing countries in the Asia Pacific region that experience strong economic growth.

With rapid growth of population, food demand is increasing dramatically therefore, the agricultural sectors have to be analyzed agriculture market and forecasted future market of agriculture. China captures most of the global Agri-markets with high production and export-import business, followed by India, US and other regions. World production of wheat and coarse grains is expected to increase by 14% and 20%, by the end of 2022. Wheat consumption has also projected to increase in both the developing and the developed countries. World sugar production increases by 1.8% in 2022 whereas cotton production rises by 1.7% p.a. in 2022, as the global stocks are gradually reduced. Biofuel production is projected to increase with production of sugar cane (31%), vegetable oil (14%), and coarse grains (13%) by 2022 globally. Biodiesel production is expected to grow faster; at a rate of 4.8% p.a. to reach 45 billion litres in 2022.China and Africa region will compensate economic losses in Agri market when raised by other developing countries. They will continue to capture 56 per cent of world feed consumption market by sharing grains, crops, horticulture commodities by 2050. Developing countries may increase livestock consumption towards 2050.

Conclusion:

The agricultural development within China has been based on specialization in only crop production aiming at urban markets and exports. This spectacular productivity increase was largely due to the policy environment during1950’s. It is though not easy to reproduce this process without similar market interventions and other policy measures. Meanwhile times have changed dramatically and the present international financial politics policy measures are very difficult to reproduce in the developing country context. The mainstream of research and policies further aim at further scale enlargement and technological development, while new farmer’s frequently aim at diversifying farm-income and optimizing rather than maximizing farm productivity. These farmers with their diversified knowledge and wide networks can be very helpful for research and policy towards sustainable dairy development; in fact they stand at the basis of agricultural transition.
