As per available reports about 25 Open Access Journals, 20 Conferences, 421 open access articles are presently dedicated exclusively Agrotechnology and about 812 conference proceedings are being published on Agrotechnology.
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. In recent years, most of the countries are practicing these technologies to develop the quality as well as the quantity of agricultural products considering the emerging demand for food scarcity rising day by day.
The most demanding field and area of approach in the field of agri-technology are:
• Equipment, machinery and structure designing
• Systems for controlling the climatic conditions
OMICS International is an Open Access Publications group which organizes International scientific conferences worldwide. This can be achieved through the support of 700 Open Access Journals, 50000 Editorial team, 1000 more scientific societies 21 Days rapid review process with valuable 3.5 Million readers conducting 300 scientific conferences per year.
In this way OMICS International Conferences are engraved to the marks of success in open access publishing & also in organizing scientific events. The OMICS International event participants are typically high-level decision makers representing various parts of the industry and many participants are repeaters who know each other.
Conferences and Symposiums of OMICS International enlightens your research path by gathering scientific professionals from across the globe to discuss the recent scientific discoveries done followed by the interactive sessions through B2B meetings and scientific partnering. The importance and significance of OMICS International Conferences can be gauged by the fact that it has made huge advancements over the course of time and is continuing to influence various sectors.
Scope and Importance:
In agriculture, technology has enabled the genetic alteration of crops, improved soil productivity, and enhanced weed and pest control. In addition to increased crop productivity, it has the potential to create more nutritious crops. Vitamins, minerals, and amino acids are necessary to maintain healthy bodies, and a deficiency will lead to infections, complications during pregnancy and childbirth, and impaired child development. Agrotechnology has the potential to improve the nutritional value of crops, leading both to lower health care costs and higher economic performance (due to improved worker health). Crop production will have to cope with rapidly increasing demand while ensuring environmental sustainability. Preservation of natural resources and the need to support the livelihoods of farmers and rural populations around the world are major concerns.
Another useful application of agrotechnology is to give plants the ability to grow in a wider range of environments. Some plants do well only in certain climates or soil conditions. By introducing genes from other organisms, scientists can alter these plants so that they'll grow in climates that normally would be too harsh for them. Land previously unsuited for crops can be reclaimed for food production.
A third application involves making plants more resistant to disease, pests and chemicals. Genes can give plants a defence against threats that could normally wipe out an entire generation of crops. Genetic manipulation can lead to plants that are toxic to pests but still safe for human consumption. Alternatively, scientists can develop genes that will make crops resistant to pesticides and herbicides so that farmers can treat their crops with chemicals. By introducing new genes -- or turning off existing genes -- scientists can change everything from the appearance of food to its taste.
Transgenic crops emerged as the largest application segment of the global agrotechnology market. Rising demand for food production coupled with decrease in arable land is anticipated to drive the transgenic crops application. Hence, transgenic crops account for majority share of the overall agricultural biotechnology market and are widely adopted in developed as well as developing countries. Synthetic biology-enabled products and various tools used in agricultural biotechnology held a smaller share of the market.
Soybean and corn are the most widely consumed GM crops globally. Rising demand for animal feed due to increasing consumption of meat is expected to drive the market for these crops. Soybean is anticipated to be the fastest growing crop in the next few years. Corn is used in various industrial applications apart from its consumption as grain in the production of biofuels, bioplastics, etc. Cotton is widely used in Asia due to high demand from the textile industry. Other crops such as sugarcane, sugar beet and canola held nearly 10% of the overall market.
The global agrotechnology market was dominated by North America due to high cultivation of GM crops and acceptance of these crops by consumers. Biotechnology companies are spending 15–20% of revenues on R&D activities. Companies are establishing R&D centers in Asia Pacific in order to keep pace with the competition. The region is expected to grow significantly in the next few years due to rising demand for food and other bio-based products. There is hardly any production of GM crops in Europe due to stringent regulations and strong opposition from consumers. Hence, the market is estimated to grow at a moderate rate. Brazil is the next growth engine of the agricultural biotechnology market (after the U.S.). Large scale production of transgenic crops is expected to drive the rest of the world market during the forecast period.
