The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) is pleased to invite you to learn about some of the current agricultural research projects that OFA supports. Join us virtually on Thursday, May 6, 2021 to learn about topics such as: farmland values, mental health and wellness, workforce attraction, carbon tax, and environmental stewardship.
International Conference on Urban Agriculture aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Urban Agriculture.
AGRI SUMMIT 2021 Webinar will be held as an online event, around the theme: Current Research and Developments in Agriculture and Plant Science.
Cross-Sectoral Dialogue on the Adoption of Environmentally Sustainable Innovations. Meet experts in Agriculture and Farming from all over the world.
Bringing together vertical farming operators, investors, suppliers and customers, the 2nd annual Vertical Farming World Congress is designed to help develop and advance the sector’s future.
This conference is an absolute platform that’s a confluence of all participants, of the ecosystem –Industry, Academia, Researchers, Innovators, Regulators – assimilate to attending and discuss current topics in Agriculture, Horticulture, food sciences, food technology, Plant Protection, Plant & Forest Ecology, aquaculture etc.
International Conference on Innovative Agricultural Practices, Urban Agriculture and Vertical Farms aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Innovative Agricultural Practices, Urban Agriculture and Vertical Farms.
It is the largest gathering of specialised plant science with more than 2500 participants. The aim of this 31st edition is to contribute to the development of new collaboration between research, education and the industry on a national and global scale. Over one week, there will be a variety of plenary sessions, 25 symposia on various and transversal themes, workshops, networking, exhibitions, technical visits and a social programme.
Bringing together vertical farming operators, investors, suppliers and customers, this 3rd annual Vertical Farming World Congress is designed to help develop and advance the sector’s future. It is the most substantial dedicated event of the year, featuring two days of conference sessions, exhibits, local vertical farm tours, networking with key industry figures and presentation of the 2022 Vertical Farming World Awards. For new entrants as well as industry leaders.
The continually-growing world populations, the global trend to urbanisation, climate change and pressure on natural resources are key drivers for policies on global food security. Vertical farming is an innovative methodology for vertical cultivation of agricultural products in a small footprint, which can also realize true zero-mile city food supply.
GrowCanada Conference is Canada's premier agricultural event, providing a platform to connect with industry leaders from across the country, explore cutting-edge insight and build a stronger and more vibrant Canadian agricultural sector that ultimately contributes to a better world.
Hydroponics is the process of growing plants without the use of conventional soil or completely in water. In this basic Hydroponics class we will discuss various hydroponic systems (Deepwater Culture, Ebb & Flow, Nutrient Film Technique, Bato Buckets, etc) and which could be a good fit for your garden.
The International Forum on Agricultural Science and Technology (AGRIFORUM 2023) is a conference that covers topics such as:
- Agricultural Chemistry
- Agricultural Genetics
- Agricultural Biotechnology
- Agricultural Economics & Agribusiness
- Agricultural Engineering
- Agricultural Risk Management
- Alternative Farming systems and Vertical Farming
In this basic Hydroponics class we will discuss various hydroponic systems (Deepwater Culture, Ebb & Flow, Nutrient Film Technique, Bato Buckets, etc) and which could be a good fit for your garden. Topics like growing media, synthetic nutrients/fertilizers, growing environment, properties of water and testing equipment will be covered. We will also discuss various methods of vertical farming that can be implemented indoors or outdoors.
You are invited to join us for a morning of healthy discussion and knowledge exchange focusing on key aspects of managing land in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and National Parks. Following exit from the EU, the UK governments Agricultural Transition Plan incorporates plans to farm in such areas and boost nature recovery whilst safeguarding for the future, and this seminar will explore how this works in practice. To ensure future business sustainability, it is vital that farmers understand how this will affect them as they look to the future.
Vertical Farming is becoming critically important in increasing food production, maintaining high-quality crops and contributing to sustainable urban farming, hence playing an important role in increasing food security worldwide.
