About this event
The heat is on agriculture and food production in the tropics. With the global population expected to reach 9.8 billion by 2050, the greatest pressure will likely be experienced in the world’s tropical zone which is home to half the world’s population, including more than half of its young people, and many of its fastest growing economies.
The TropAg 2019 program will focus on ‘Shaping the science of tomorrow’ and include five program themes across field crops, horticulture, livestock, nutritious food and an AgFutures stream focused on technology and investment. The three day conference attracts around 750 delegates including researchers, growers, investors, industry, policy makers and agribusiness. The program is set to celebrate scientific research success stories and discuss how the tropics will address challenges in the future. Over 300 speakers will present during the conference plenary and symposia sessions.
