Current Trends and Innovations in Agriculture Development include technologies which reduce carbon footprint in agriculture as against the climate challenges. Technologies which enhance the health and yield of crops and herds are included as these reduce waste from the industry and alleviate pressure to convert native land into agricultural fields. Other technologies include are land and resource management practices to decrease or eliminate nutrient drain and erosion of soils such that the land may sustain cultivable yields indefinitely. Sustainability in crop farming focuses on increasing yields as well as improving resilience and persistence of crops. This session discusses about crop resilience describes the capacity of the plant to buffer shocks and stresses while persistence describes the ability of arable land to sustain a crop rotation indefinitely without diminishing yields.
