Agriculture & Forestry Conference – Call for papers

Full paper Guidline

“The discovery of agriculture was the first big step toward a civilized life.” is a famous quote by Arthur Keith. This emphasizes that the agriculture plays a vital role in the economy of every nation. Since the dawn of history agriculture has been one of the significant earnings of producing food for human utilization. Today more and more lands are being developed for the production of a large variety crops and commercial purposes. Agriculture, also called farming or husbandry, is the cultivation of animals, plants, fungi, and other life forms for food, fiber, bio-fuel, drugs and other products used to sustain and enhance human life. Agriculture was the key development in the rise of sedentary human civilization, whereby farming of domesticated species created food surpluses that nurtured the development of civilization. The study of agriculture is known as agricultural science. The history of agriculture dates back thousands of years, and its development has been driven and defined by greatly different climates, cultures, and technologies. Agricultural growth and productivity remains central to poverty reduction, particularly in the poorest countries, where a large share of the population relies on agriculture and agribusiness for their livelihood.70 percent of the world’s poor who live in the rural areas, agriculture is the main source of income and employment. But depletion and degradation of land and water pose serious challenges to producing enough food and other agriculture products to sustain live hoods here and meet the needs of urban populations.

In order to feed a population of 9 billion in 2050, the world will need a new vision for agriculture – delivering food security, environmental sustainability and economic opportunity through agriculture. This will require producing more food with fewer resources while reinvigorating rural economies. It can be achieved through collaboration, investment and innovation among all stakeholders. Therefore the Agriculture and Forestry is a major are for researches all around the world.

The International Conference on Agriculture and Forestry 2014 (ICOAF 2014) is the premier forum for the presentation of new advances and research results in the fields of Agriculture and Forestry. The conference will bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and scholars in the domain of interest from around the world.
