SESSION TRACKS

Track 01: Agriculture Engineering

Agriculture conference focus on the topic Agriculture Engineering. Agricultural Engineering is developed to make advances in sustainable agriculture which is totally eco-friendly. By the middle of the 20th century, Agricultural Engineering evolved into four types of activity like Power and machinery, Irrigation and drainage, Farm structures and environment, Processing and electrification. Most Agricultural Engineering focused on biological engineering, efficient use of irrigation water, renewable energy and environmental issues. Agricultural Engineering is facing three great challenges: Food safety and Food security, protecting the species and natural resources and reduced employment status. Agricultural Engineering is focused on engineering skills and technologies that take a strong approach to current problems. Food security and crop production will be much stronger if Agricultural Engineering can be developed appropriately.

Track 02: Agriculture & Food Security

Agriculture conference focuses on the topic food security and welcomes to all person who related to food security. A policy orientation for food security and safety include state-wise, previous, current and future policy issues, and cope-wise sustainability of agriculture. The particular part of food distribution in our society can be examined through the research of the changes in the food supply chain. Globalization, in particular, has significant effects on the food supply chain by validating scale effect in the food distribution industry. Provision of an adequate amount of essential nutrients to human beings has ever been the challenge in the province of food security. Hence, malnutrition is heavily interlinked to food security consideration, yet difficult to be eliminated. food security and policy, therefore, become magnetic in the province of research.

The scope of the plant science ranges from developing molecular techniques for genetic engineering to ecological research in the field of plant science. Ultimately the natural products want to contribute to a fundamental knowledge of basic biological processes related to development and health and the sustainable production of more healthy foods, flowers, and high-value biobased products. By accelerating the application of technology, plant genomics significantly increases the value of seeds and agricultural products. This increase adds much wealth to the customers, company owners, employees, and citizens of the nations in which genetic supply companies operate, and to both producing and importing nations whose food costs consequently are decreased.

Track 04: Agricultural Production Systems & Agribusiness

Agriculture conference focuses on the topic agribusiness. Agribusiness is the business of agricultural production. It includes agrichemicals, breeding, crop production distribution, farm machinery, processing, and seed supply, 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 simply as a portmanteau of agriculture and business, referring to the range of activities and disciplines encompassed by modern food production. There are academic degrees in and departments of agribusiness, agribusiness trade associations, agribusiness publications, and so forth, worldwide.

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 usually measured as the market value of final output, which excludes intermediate products such as corn feed used in the meat industry. This output value may be compared to many different types of inputs such as labour and land (yield). These are called partial measures of productivity.

Track 06: Agriculture and Environment

Agriculture conference 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 emissions into the environment and the farming system is indirect, as it also depends on other climate variables such as rainfall and temperature.

The environmental impact of agriculture involves a variety of factors from the soil to water, the air, animal and soil diversity, people, plants, and the food itself. Some of the environmental issues that are related to agriculture are climate change, deforestation, genetic engineering, irrigation problems, pollutants, soil degradation, and waste.

There are five basic types of agroforestry practices have been developed: windbreaks, alley cropping, silviculture, riparian buffers and forest and hill farming. Agroforestry helps to conserve species diversity and protect natural resources, reduce pollution, control soil erosion, and enhance wildlife biodiversity. The benefits of agroforestry include improvement of the growth of agro-economy and resource sustainability. Agroforestry practices also influence agroecosystem and diversification of endangered crop species. The greatest research need is to develop farm-level analyzes to increase potential economic costs, benefits which may reduce risks associated with agroforestry practices and increase the market value of products.  Agriculture conference provides an opportunity to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of Agriculture & Forestry.

The soil is used as a holding and interacting facility for nutrients, microorganisms, plants and water. The soil is responsible for Agro ecosystems 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 provides an opportunity to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of Soil Sciences.

Track 11: 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.

  • Single nutrient fertilizers
  • Multinutrient fertilizers
  • Biofertilizers

In recent years, livestock farming is very well managed as animals are provided with proper nutritional food and shelter. Nowadays stress management is also a part of livestock farming as it finally improves product yield and quality. Pigs and poultry are reared intensively in indoor environments. However, indoor animal farming has often been criticized for multiple reasons - on grounds of pollution and for animal welfare reasons.

MARKET ANALYSIS

The industry Agriculture includes statistics, facts and market data on the primary sectors Farming, Forestry, and Fishery & Aquaculture.

Farming is one of the oldest businesses and comprises the cultivation of crops and animals for mainly food or use as biofuel. The farming sector provides figures on production and production value and highlights leading producing states on the national level. In addition, it covers infrastructure information such as commodity prices, income levels and number of production facilities, and shows data on industry employment. Top-tier companies in the agricultural landscape include seed and crop protection producer Monsanto, flour-miller Archer Daniels Midland, and agricultural machinery and farm equipment manufacturer Deere & Company (commonly known under its brand name John Deere). In this context, a broad range of company-related statistics is presented.

Fishery is an industrial sector dealing with raising or harvesting fish for food production or further processing. Fishery distinguishes between commercial and recreational fishing. The sector provides data on the number of domestic landings, annual prices for different fish species, generated sales and trade data on major imports and exports.

The third sub branch of the primary sector agriculture – forestry – covers the management of forests to produce raw materials and to use wood in a sustainable way.

The United States was always destined to be one of the world’s leading agricultural producers and suppliers. In 2017, the U.S. farming industry employed more than 827 thousand people around the country.

Across the U.S. there are numerous farms of various sizes. In 2018, the total number of farms stood at approximately 2.08 million. On average, farms in the U.S. are around 438 acres in size and in total there are nearly 913 million acres of farmland across the country, of which slightly more than one third is operated by full owners. Altogether the real estate value of farming land in the U.S. amounted to more than two trillion U.S. dollars.

The United States is a major player in the global trade of agricultural products. In 2018, exports of agricultural products were worth some 133 billion U.S. dollars. The most important countries of destination were China, Canada, and Mexico. Conversely, imports worth around 113.5 billion U.S. dollars made their way into the United States that year. The principal countries/regions of origin were Canada, the European Union, and Mexico.

Farming also involves significant production costs. A closer look at the composition of these costs shows that feed made up the largest share, followed by costs associated with farm services, livestock and poultry.

Over the last decade, the issue of genetic engineering has increasingly been on the agenda. The United States has by far the highest acreage of genetically modified crops worldwide. Some crops have a very high share of GM crops per species.

 

Impact on EU exports and imports (2018-2025, % difference to baseline)

The global market for arable crops has been marked by several consecutive years of record supply, which have led to stock replenishment and a strong drop in prices from the 2015 peak. However, in 2018 cereal prices remained between EUR 150/t and EUR 180/t on the back of solid world demand, which is expected to remain steady in the medium term. In the EU, domestic demand for cereals and oilseeds is driven mainly by feed use. The EU’s cereals export potential will be constrained by a reduction in arable land. EU cereals production is expected to grow further, to around 320 million t by 2025. Demand is driven by feed demand and good export prospects, for wheat and barley. Growth is constrained by a steady reduction in arable land and slow yield growth in the EU as compared with other regions. It is assumed that maize stocks will recover from their current low level and wheat and barley stocks remain significantly above the 2012 level over the outlook period, albeit below historic levels. Prices are expected to be relatively low, recovering towards the end of the outlook period to close to EUR 190/t for common wheat. Upward price spikes are likely for periods following a production shortfall in a major producer. In the next decade, developments in the oilseed complex should be driven mainly by the expansion in the livestock sector and the consequent increase in demand for oilseed meals. This should trigger a shift towards more imports of soybeans and especially meals, while domestic rapeseed and sunflower seed production is expected to stabilize at 28 million t in 2025. The proportion of vegetable oils in the biofuels complex is projected to decrease in favor of waste oils and residues. Total food use is expected to decline marginally, bringing total use of vegetable oils down to 22 million t in 2025.

 

Production of Cereals from 2005-2025

 The current low prices for dairy commodities  and milk are mainly the result of a surge in world and EU supply at a time when China has started to reduce its purchases and Russia has introduced an import ban. However, import demand from other regions of the world has risen significantly and is expected to grow steadily over the outlook period, driven by population growth and a change in diets in favour of dairy products. In addition, Chinese imports should resume growth.

This outlook for EU agricultural markets and income is based on a specific set of assumptions regarding the future economic, market and policy environment. Also, the baseline assumes normal weather conditions, steady yield trends and no market disruptions (e.g. from animal disease outbreaks, food safety issues, etc.). An uncertainty analysis accompanying the baseline quantifies some of the upside and downside risks and provides background on possible variation in the results. This takes account of the macroeconomic environment yield variability for the main crops, and selected scenarios: the impact of lower oil prices, greater depreciation of the euro against the US dollar and the possibility of China reducing its livestock production in view of environmental constraints.
