The XVe European Society for Agronomy Congress (ESA) will be held in Geneva from 27 to 31 August, where innovative cropping and farming systems for high quality food production systems will be presented and discussed.
The main challenge for the agriculture and food sector is to provide nutritious food for the world’s population whilst conserving natural resources. There is an increasingly broad consensus that agriculture and food systems need to be transformed in a way that they simultaneously provide adequate nutrition for all, minimize negative impact on ecosystems and human health and improve livelihoods and resilience whilst being economically viable.
These important issues will be addressed at the XV Congress of the ESA. The congress will offer a broad base of sessions related to crop physiology, cropping systems, farming systems and value chains in order to manage natural capital by making secure the availability and by managing the quality of natural resources.
It is organized by Agroscope, ETH Zurich, FiBL Switzerland and the Swiss Society of Agronomy, and it is open to scientists, professionals and students interested to discuss the scientific advances and possible practical applications.
Posters for the congress can now be submitted until 15 June 2018.
