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.

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 will 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 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.

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 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 than the food is called as nanofood. It does not mean that atomically modified food or food made by nanomachines.

The energy stored in biomass also termed as organic matter is called bioenergy. This energy has generally been produced through the process of photosynthesis or is an organic by-product from a waste stream. Bioenergy can be used as to give heat, or for making electricity and also used in making biological fuel. Wood, which people have used to cook and keep warm for thousands of years, is the biomass resource people are most familiar with. Bioenergy is the sustainable renewable energy source which will become a support towards global energy conservation.

Crop Protection is the science and routine of overseeing plant ailments, weeds and different vermin (both vertebrate and invertebrate) that harm agrarian yields and ranger service. Agrarian yields incorporate field crops (maize, wheat, rice, and so on.), vegetable harvests (potatoes, cabbages, and so on.) and natural products. The yields in a field are presented to numerous elements. The yield plants might be harmed by creepy crawlies, fowls, rodents, microscopic organisms, and so on. Crop security is the study and routine of overseeing nuisances, plant illnesses, weeds and other unsafe living beings that harm agrarian products and ranger service and in this manner, influence monetary quality and agri-market.

Natural Resources Management deals with the sustainable utilization of major natural resources, such as land, water, air, minerals, forests, fisheries, and flora and fauna present on the planet. Together, these resources provide the ecosystem services that are responsible for human life on this planet. While poverty alleviation and sustainable NRM are generally compatible, difficult trade-offs may occur at several times. Never the less the fact remains that without poverty alleviation, the environment in developing countries will continue to degrade, and without better NRM, poverty alleviation will be undermined. Developing countries and cities, as a group, are expected to grow by 160% over the period, whereas rural populations will grow by only 10%.Integrated natural resource management is a process of managing natural resources in a systematic way, which indulges multiple aspects of natural resource use (biophysical, socio-political, and economic) meet goals regarding production of producers and other direct users (e.g., food security, profitability, risk aversion) as well as goals of the wider community (e.g., poverty alleviation, welfare of future generations, environmental conservation). It focuses on sustainability and at the same time tries to incorporate all possible stakeholders from the planning level itself, reducing possible future conflicts.

Organic farming is another agricultural system which began early in the 20th Century. An organic farm, properly speaking, is not one that uses certain approach and substances and avoids others; the independence and the benign dependence of an organism. Organic farming methods combine scientific knowledge of ecology. Organic farming methods are studied around agro ecology. The principal approach of organic farming includes crop rotation, green manures and compost and biological pest control.

Global Climate change is one of major topic for the environmentalist to concern about. This effect is the result of heat-trapping gases (also known as greenhouse gases) like water vapor, ozone, carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide, which absorb the heat radiated from the Earth’s surface and lower atmosphere and then radiate most of the energy back towards the surface. Without this natural greenhouse effect, the surface temperature of the Earth would be about 15.5°C colder. However, increasing activities by humans have been releasing additional heat-trapping gases, intensifying the natural greenhouse effect, thereby changing the Earth’s climate. Global temperatures are markedly rising over this century; by how much and for how long, it depends on several factors, which include the amount of heat-trapping gas emissions and how sensitive is the climate to those emissions.
