Message from Dr. V. Sivaram.
We take this opportunity and great pleasure to announce the INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON EMERGING TRENDS INTEGRATED PEST AND DISEASE MANAGEMENT FOR QUALITY FOOD PRODUCTION scheduled to be held from July 25-27, 2017 at The Waterfront Hotel, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia. The integrated pest management (IPM) has an important role in sustainable agriculture and quality food production by providing maximum economic yields to the farmer, while improving or... maintaining the production site and protecting the environment. The procedures to improve economic yields while reducing inputs include: the integration of pesticides with cultural techniques for disease control; and biological, behavioral, and environmental controls of pests such as weeds. Especially biological and biotechnological control methods have a vital importance as the alternatives to chemical control in integrated pest management. Biotechnology promises to have a major impact on IPM through the use of recombinant DNA techniques to genetically engineer microbes for the control of diseases, insects, and weeds, and to generate plants that resist insects, pathogens, and herbicides.
The international conference on emerging trends integrated pest and disease management for quality food production is being organized by V Sivaram Research Foundation in partnership with Universiti Teknologi MARA, Sarawak and supported by Government of Sarawak and also many national and international organizations. The organizers are pleased to invite scientists, students, farmers, as well as representatives from government, non-government organizations and industry to share their research expertise for sustainable agriculture to eradicate hunger around the globe. The IPM Conference will provide the platform to enhance knowledge with latest trends through keynote speeches, thematic scientific papers and poster presentations. We hope to have an extensive technical program covering various themes around IPM technologies and invite eminent speakers to stimulate our agenda on all aspects of Pest management for quality food production.
On behalf of the organizing committee, we warmly invite you to Kuching, Sarawak the land of Rainforests and Hornbills.
Looking forward to your active participation for the success of this important conference in Malaysia

Hello, this is advertisement for International Society for Plant Pathology (ISPP) journal "Food Security: The Science, Sociology and Economics of Food Production and Access to Food."
The journal Food Security offers a mixture of original refereed papers taking a synthetic view of the science, sociology and economics of food production, agricultural development, access to food, and nutrition, together with review articles, case studies and letters to the editor. The journal c...overs the principles and practice of food security per se, taking an overview of the subject or analyzing it with a broad perspective over its many component disciplines.
To address the challenge of global food security, the journal probes the constraints - physical, biological, socio-economic and political - which not only limit food production but also the ability of people to access a healthy diet. From this perspective, the journal covers Global food needs; Global food potential; Nutrition, food quality and safety; impinging socio-political factors, and more.
Food Security is an official publication of the International Society for Plant Pathology.
Food Security is available through Springer Developing Countries Initiative such as AGORA and HINARI.
