Welcome to the site for the 10th International Symposium on Agriculture and the Environment!
"Adaptability of Agriculture and Conservation Systems in a Changing Environment"
Our environment continues to evolve, as factors such as global climate change and atmospheric warming alter local weather and growing conditions for agricultural crops. To some extent increasing carbon dioxide levels and higher temperatures may enhance plant growth, but other factors such as more variable and extreme precipitation events, flooding, drought, and excessively high temperatures may act to diminish crop production. This tenth International Symposium on Agriculture and the Environment seeks to provide a forum for scientists to present new research on environmental studies, agricultural research, processes of soil erosion by wind and water, conservation policies, and innovative practices to preserve and protect the soil, water, and air resources while at the same time providing for a sustainable agriculture.
