OMICS Group invites all the participants across the globe to attend the 3rd International Conference on Agricultural & Horticultural Sciences (Agri-2014 October) during October 27-29, 2014 at Hyderabad, India.
The previous two Conferences on Agriculture which were held at Hyderabad, India brought together a forum of renowned personalities from the fields of agriculture, horticulture and food technology from the leading research institutes to most of the universities, making it largest and most successful international gathering by OMICS Group. The collaborative efforts from Centre for Good Governance and Indian Phytopathological Society have supported the conference to make it a grand success. All the presented abstracts were published in the Agrotechnology journal as a special issue.
Agri-2014 October provides a perfect symposium for scientists, professors, directors of research institutes & companies and research students in the field of Agriculture to meet and share their knowledge. The scientific program paves a way to gather visionaries through the research talks and presentations and put forward many thought provoking strategies. Agri-2014 October is not only a gathering of professionals, but would be a platform to mix with young talent and renowned personalities to provide new insights in areas such as Agriculture, Horticulture & Forestry etc. The scientific gathering ensures to satisfy the theme “Novel Strategies & Innovations in Agricultural & Horticultural Sciences”.
A technical approach in the field of agriculture by the application of science for efficient, quality reaching and more profitable production is termed Agro-technology. The technical approach of this includes the use of advanced machineries, tools and methods of plant protection. In recent days the development in these allied technologies for the development of the agriculture is widened. The mission of the Crop Genetics and Breeding Research Unit is to conduct research to solve agricultural and environmental problems of regional and national interest. Seeds are the delivery systems for agricultural biotechnology. High quality seed leads to excellent seedling performance in the field. It is the ultimative basis of successful companies that breed crop plants for seed production. Seed quality is a complex trait that is determined by interactions between multiple genetic factors and environmental conditions. Modern approaches to improve seed quality therefore combine classical genetics, plant molecular biology and a variety of seed technologies. These "seed biotechnologies" enhance physiological quality, vigor and synchronity to establish a crop in the field under diverse environmental conditions. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment. The IPM approach can be applied to both agricultural and non-agricultural settings, such as the home, garden, and workplace. IPM takes advantage of all appropriate pest management options including, but not limited to, the judicious use of pesticides.
