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 involves studying the factors that influence our eating patterns, making recommendations about the amount we should eat of each type of food, maintaining food safety, 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

griculture 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.

griculture 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.

griculture 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. The European fertilizer market will grow to earn revenues of approx. €15.3 billion in 2018.

The environment impact of agriculture varies based on the wide variety of agricultural practices employed around the world. Ultimately, the environment impact depends on the production practices of the system used by farmers. The connection between flow into the environment and the farming system is indirect, as it also depends on other climate variables such as rainfall and temperature.
There are two types of signals of environmental impact: “means-based” which is based on the farmer’s production methods, and “effect based” which is the Impact that farming methods have on the farming system or on emission to the environment. An example of a means-based indicator would be the quality of groundwater, that is effected by the amount of nitrogen applied to the soil. An indicator reflecting the loss of nitrate to groundwater would be effect-based
