Invitation to 2016 High Level Seminar

on

Sustainable Agricultural Mechanization Development (SAMD) in Asian-Pacific Region

 

The agriculture worldwide is actively exploring a new path of development in aim of pursuing an ecological sustainable development cycle by facing the pressure of increasing population. Nowadays, Chinese agriculture is focusing on agricultural optimization and technical innovation of traditional agriculture. The agricultural land output, labor productivity, commodity rate and resource utilization have had great enhances. As a representative of the advanced agricultural productivity becomes the symbol of agricultural production conditions and means of production. It’s clear that in order to realize the strategic target of the sustainable development of agriculture, we must attach importance to develop agricultural mechanization.

This seminar will rely on agricultural mechanization technology to have a sustainable development of agricultural mechanization of high-yield, high-quality and high-efficiency road in order to improve the current situation of shortage of land and freshwater and the worsening agricultural environment. Accordingly the Ministry of Agriculture of China entrusted Nanjing Research Institute for Agricultural Mechanization (NRIAM) to hold this high level seminar.
