Background

Background

Adoption of agricultural innovations has been an important factor affecting the productivity of agriculture, the welfare of farmers, and the economics of the food sector. Prior to adoption, the dissemination process also plays a pivotal role to bring about a practice change in the way how to adopt new technology. Furthermore, a new technology enables sustainable and profitable production of not only food but also fibre that is critical for both food security and economic development. Therefore, the dynamics of technical change in agriculture has been an area of intense research interest, either in developed or in developing countries. Over the decades, approaches to agricultural research and development have evolved considerably, shifting sequentially from ‘commodity and productivity orientations, farmer participatory research and rural livelihoods’ to ‘farmer-to-farmer approaches and social learning through farmer field schools’.


The first ADAI International Conference 2021 will be an innovative and informative International Conference reflecting the direction of agricultural innovation, dissemination including extension approaches, and agricultural development towards the future pathways. It also serves to foster communication among researchers and practitioners working in a wide variety of scientific areas with a common interest in improving agricultural technology application. All full paper submissions will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability. 

Objectives

a.    To share and communicate the current knowledge and research results on Agricultural Innovation and Dissemination

b.    To formulate improved management systems in innovation and dissemination to achieve sustainable agriculture development. 

Target Participants

The target participants are scientists, academicians, policy makers, NGO’s, students, entrepreneurs, government officials, and agriculture practitioners from across the world, especially those who have good background of agricultural innovation and dissemination.
