Track 1: Global Warming and Agriculture

Agriculture is highly dependent on environment and Ecological conditions. Meetings on Climate Changeis related to our food resource, nutrient levels, soil nutrients, water management and other conditions. Changes in temperature, amount of carbon dioxide (CO2), and the rate and intensity of weather condition positively effects on crop yields, quality and production. Changes in the incidence and sternness of droughts and floods could pose challenges for farmers. Global Warming conferences focused on the cause to increase in temperature which causes major threat to species and their adaptation ability, which could disturb ecologies. Weather alteration marks it further difficult to grow crops which can be a problem for food security. The effects of weather change also essential to be painstaking along with other evolving factors that affect agricultural production, such as alterations in agriculture practices and technology. To fight against this situation is the biggest challenge for farm and agricultural sectors. Many types of machinery have been developed in recent years to improve crop yield, productivity and reworking power to the environment. Overview to Climate Smart Agriculture conference and Genetic Engineering conference are two most helpful conferences which displays possible effects in contradiction of Global Warming and Climate Change. These are most intensive research fields to deal with such environmental problems.

Track 5: Agronomy

Agronomy seminar is the science of making and use of plants for multidisciplinary use along with soil, crop and water managing. Agronomy related to work in the zones of plant genetics, plant physiology, Agrometeorology, and soil science. Agronomy is the solicitation of joint disciplines like biology, chemistry, economics, ecology, earth science, and genetics. Agronomy is now an important research field for scientists to study the behaviour of plant in different environmental conditions including climate, soil type and agricultural irrigation, fertilization etc. by conducting numerous trials in the fields, pots & laboratories. It is also involves application of research in the field or forming appropriate packages of performs under a given set of situations. Agronomists eventswork in identification of different environmental risks and find key solution to avoid those risks. Management techniques developed by agronomists include terracing, strip cropping, and reduced tillage methods to reduce soil erosion. Developments in Global Information Systems (GIS) and site-specific technology are being used by agronomists to more precisely manage soil amendments and fertilizers. This helps to detect proper time for the application of pesticides which reduce ecosystem pollution or contamination. GIS and Remote Sensing are extremely useful in agricultural management.

Track 7: Agriculture & Forestry

Agro forestry conference is an intensive study on land management scheme that benefits biological interactions between forest trees or shrubs and farming yields and/or livestock. There are five basic types of agroforestry practices have been advanced: windbreaks, alley cropping, silviculture, riparian buffers and forest and hill farming. Agro forestry helps to preserve species diversity and protect natural resources, reduce pollution, control soil erosion, and enhance wildlife biodiversity. The benefits of agroforestry include: development of the growth of agro economy and resource sustainability. Agroforestry practices are also influence agro ecosystem and diversification of endangered crop species. The greatest research need is to develop farm-level analyses to raise potential economic costs, benefits which may reduce risks related with agro forestry practice meetingsand upsurge marketplace value of products. This is a vital prerequisite to the objective evaluation of both production-and conservation-driven agroforestry practices with alternative land use options. Furthermore, awareness should be raised among farmers and labors to advance future market value of regional, national and international markets for commodities that can be formed through agroforestry system. Research o¬n tree-crop-animal-environment interactions should be pursued to deliver a scientific basis for optimizing agro forestry designs.

Track 11: Organic Agriculture

Organic farming conference is a form of agriculture conference that includes techniques such as crop rotation, green manure, compost, and biological pest control. Organic farming uses only natural fertilizers and pesticides (such as bone meal from animals or pyrethrin from flowers), but it strictly limits the use of some applications like synthetic fertilizers and pesticides; plantgrowth regulators hormones; antibiotic use in livestock; genetically modified organisms; human sewage sludge etc. This farming system ensures sustainability, openness, independence, health, and safety. Organic agricultural methods are applied, regulated and legally enforced by many nations. Since 1990 the market for organic food and other products has grown rapidly, reaching $63 billion worldwide in 2012.This demand has driven a similar increase in organically managed farmland which has grown over the years 2001-2011 at a compounding rate of 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. Organic farming meetings deal with biosafety management, soil conservation and environmental impacts.

Track 12: Agricultural Extension and Sustaining Practices

Sustainable agriculture eventsconcentrate on three main objectives: environmental health, economic profitability, and social and economic equity. Sustainability rests on the principle that we must meet the needs of the present demands without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Agricultural extension meetings is a general term meaning the application of scientific research and new knowledge toagricultural practices through farmer education and rural development programs. The field of 'extension' deals with communication and learning activities organized for rural farmers to expose them to proper knowledge about profitable and sustainable farming system. Extension practitioners can be from different backgrounds including agriculture, market, environment, and health and business studies and usually they work for government agencies. They are represented by several government and non-government organizations, networks and extension journals.

Track 13: Livestock Farming & Genetic Engineering

Livestock Farming is an agricultural event repetition to yield commodities such as food, fibre, leather, wool and labor by rising domestic animals like poultry, cow, cattle, fish and other mammals. In recent years, livestock farming is very well achieved as animals are delivered with proper nutritious food and shelter. Now a days stress management is also a part of livestock farming as it lastly recover product yield and quality. Pigs and poultry are reared intensively in indoor surroundings. Though, indoor animal husbandry has often been criticized for multiple reasons - on grounds of pollution and for animal welfare reasons. Livestock farming seminars plays major role in the agricultural business and economy of major emerging republics. They take significant part in crop agriculture. Most farms in the developing world are too minor to benefit tractor or additional machinery services and their main alternative is animal power. The innumerable welfares of livestock farming can definitely result in development in growth of agronomy, agroeconomy, biological ecosystem and other agricultural fields.

Market Research Report of Agriculture in South Africa

South Africa is the dominant country in Africa in agribusiness. But due to unfavourable climate condition, aridity of land and unavailability of sufficient water; agriculture face huge problem and thus lacking behind in foreign competition. The agricultural sector employs around 5 per cent of the total labour force and accounts for 7 per cent of total exports. 

Sugar cane is one of the main crops produced in South Africa, followed by maize and wheat. Maize and oranges are the main export crops in South Africa. Between 1999 and 2009, maize production was increased by 52 per cent and wheat production increased by 13 per cent. But in 2009, sugar cane production decreased by 3 per cent.  South Africa imports more from neighbours like USA, UK, Thailand, Germany, Indonesia, China etc. In 2009, South Africa imported around US$325 million worth of fruits, vegetables and spices.

In recent years, South Africa is trying to make room for exporters and it exports cocoa, cereals, canned beverages, oranges, fats and oils, fish, seafood and sugar to its neighbour like UK, Netherland, US, Japan and European Union (Figure 1 & 2). South Africa is trying to mark itself by increasing trade to improve Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and Gross Farming Income (GFI). Exports value of GDP increased from 1970 to 2005 of an average of 14 per cent.  The value of agricultural exports increased from 5% to 51 per cent from 1990 to 2008.

[Data Source: SA Agricultural, Forestry and Fisheries Export Trade, 2012]

The gross income of agricultural production was estimated at 171258 million in 2012, in compare to 149774 million from 2011 with an average increase of 11.5 per cent. The gross income from horticultural products was increased by 12.5% in 2013. The gross value of animal products, field crops and horticultural products contributed much of the gross economic with 47.2%, 28.3% and 24.5% respectively. Also South Africa has improved in wine exports faster than other countries and adds around 40 per cent to export value (Figure 3). The weighted average price of animal products increased in 2013 with an average of 11.9%. More trades have been received for dairy products, poultry meat and meat products, fish and wine.

Projected Agricultural Growth by next 10-20 years in Worldwide

With fast growth of population, food demand is rapidly increasing. So, agricultural sectors analysed agriculture market and forecasted future market of agriculture. Agricultural market is projected to increase with developing countries showing major export growth. On first position with world’s largest population, excellent agri-market growth and rapidly growing agri-food sectors, China is capturing 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 projected to increase by 16% and 22%, towards 2022. Wheat consumption has also projected to increase in both the developing and the developed countries. World sugar production is projected to increase by 1.9% in 2022. World cotton production is expected to grow by 1.6% p.a. in 2022, as the global stocks are gradually reduced. Biofuel production is projected to increase with global production of sugar cane (29%), vegetable oil (15%), and coarse grains (12%) by 2022. Biodiesel production is projected to grow faster, at 4.5% p.a. to reach 41 billion litres in 2022.

The world population is estimated to reach 9 billion by the year 2050. Modern Agriculture shows significant potential in enhancing food productivity while at the same time providing sustainable management of resources, business and technologies. The global precision farming market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 13.09% from 2015 to 2022, to reach over $6.43 billion by 2022.

China and Africa region will compensate economic losses in agri market 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. Per capita meat consumption in the developing countries is likely to grow at slower rates than past decades. Developing countries may increase livestock consumption towards 2050. The latest projections of the European Union forecast only 3 percent increase in the per capita meat consumption in 2020. Small declines in bovine and small increases in poultry and pork consumption also projected towards 2022.

Gradual increase in per capita consumption of dairy and dairy products will come from the developing countries. The developing countries will continue to increase per capita consumption than developed countries. Consumption in Asia will be more than other developing countries.

Arable land will expand by some 70 million ha in developed countries, with the expansion in developing countries by about 120 million ha. Major of the land expansion and water consumption in developing countries has projected to take place in sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America.
