Background / Highlights of Activity

1.Rationale
Stable production and supply of food crops are utmost important to provide people good nutrition and health. Food crop production includes the process from field cultivation, harvesting, processing, marketing, and table consumption. Food safety probably is the most important issue for consumers. This proposal is aimed to recruit experts from Asia-Pacific countries to address the key issues of crop production from the field to table use, emphasizing consumers’ demands in the depth case report by different countries. The next topic to be covered is the use of smart technologies in agriculture applications to help increase production efficiency and decrease agricultural management risks. Finally the decreased use of chemical pesticides to maintain food security and increase food safety will be emphasized by introducing inspection and certification of agricultural products, biological control strategies, and the new concept of plant doctors to help farmers for efficient and safer pest control measures.

2.Objectives
•Understand consumer's demand in different countries so to adjust the direction of crop production
•To share experiences in development of novel crop cultivars adapting to diverse environment and low input of energy for friendly agricultural production
•Exchanging ideas and practices on the use of smart agriculture technology and biocontrol strategy
•To emphasize certification and traceable agriculture production for food safety issues
