Description


Background

Agricultural production in the future will be emphasized on productivity increase to support food security and product quality related to food safety. To realize it, there are some challenges, i.e. soil degradation, invasive organism of plant pest and disease and climate change. In the agricultural practices, most of Indonesian farmers tend to use excessive agro-chemical materials (fertilizer and pesticide). Consequently, inefficient fertilizer and pesticide residue in soil could contaminate to the environment.

In the future, innovative and environmental friendly technology in agricultural practices should provide solution to problems in food security and food safety. The current problems in agricultural production processes are soil contamination with heavy metals from various sources, high pesticides residues and some fertilizer pollution to water body. Hence, there is a need to bring together in innovative academics.

Good agricultural practices should be applied to promote environmental friendly agriculture. The innovative technology is including remediation, reducing pesticide residue, utilization of microbes-plant accumulator to reduce heavy metals concentration, management of slow-release N fertilizer and intermittent water irrigation, low GHG emission rice cultivation and sustainable agriculture, will be discuss during the workshop.

 

Objective

This workshop and seminar aims to:

  1. explore recently available environmental friendly technologies to boost crop yield
  2. reveal best practice and best experience in sustainable management crop production
  3. strengthen collaboration and networking on agricultural research and development for developing environmental friendly technologies

 

Expected Impact

This international workshop and seminar expectedly has positive impact on:

  1. The increase awareness of healthy soils to promote safety food by using the advanced environmental friendly technology.
  2. The exposure of eco-friendly agricultural technology innovation supports sustainable food self-sufficiency.
  3. Establishing communication between stakeholders (users and policy makers) related to environmental-friendly agriculture.

 

Time and Venue

The workshop and seminar will be held in Alila Hotel, Surakarta (Solo), Central Java, Indonesia, September 18-20 2018.
