Toronto is the capital of the Canadian provenance Ontario. It is the largest city in Canada by population. Indigenous peoples have travelled through and inhabited the Toronto area, situated on a broad sloping plateau interspersed with rivers, deep ravines, and urban forest, for more than 10,000 years. The population of Toronto considers its present and historical role as an important destination for immigrants to Canada.

The Economist intelligence unit "Safe Index 2015" named Toronto the safest city in North America, eighth safest in the world. However like any large city, Toronto does have crime problems, but if you stay near the tourist areas, you won't have any troubles.

 

Track 1: Agricultural Waste Management:

Agriculture is the largest contributor of any resource sector, to the economy of Prince Edward Island. It is also a large generator of waste materials. If wastes are not properly handled they can pollute surface and groundwater and contribute to air pollution. Agricultural wastes can be Livestock, Poultry, Farm waste etc., Agricultural Waste management can decrease the pollution produced from agricultural waste. Soil properties are important considerations in areas where soils are used as sites for the treatment and disposal of organic waste and wastewater. Selection of soils with properties that favour waste administration can help to prevent environmental damage. The separate sessions Agriculture and Horticulture Conference deals with major fields like Land Applications, pesticides and fertilizer.

Track 2Polymer in Agriculture

Agriculture Conference focuses on Polymer in Agriculture. Super Absorbent Polymers (SAP) are prepared from acrylic acid and a cross-linker by solution or suspension polymerization. SAP can absorb water up to several hundred times of its own weight and turn into natural gel from within seconds. SAP does not contain any toxic compounds which affects the soil fertility. SAP Release the fertilizer efficiency slowly. SAP can be applied together with fertilizer, pesticide, micro-element, etc. Polymer in agriculture can produce good yield with minimal supplement of water, nutrients. The Agriculture and Horticulture Conference handle with some fields like soil moisture, soil erosion and water management.

Track 3Post Harvest Technology

Agribusiness gathering pointed on Post cultivation innovation which is a procedure connected to agrarian create after reap for its security, preservation gather innovation lies in the way that it has capacity to meet sustenance prerequisite of creating populace. This development is trigger agrarian creation. The three essential steps of applying post-gather development to harvested results of the dirt are: 1) To keep up quality 2) To guarantee sustenance prosperity, and 3) To diminish adversities among accumulate and usage. Agronomy, cultivating biotechnology, and soil science are the standard fields related to this session of Agriculture and Horticulture Conference.

 Track4Horticulture Therapy

Agriculture conference focuses on agricultural medical aid. Horticulture is the science and art of cultivating fruits, vegetables, flowers, and alternative cultivars (plants). It conjointly includes plant conservation, landscape restoration, soil management, landscape and horticulture style, construction, maintenance and tree cultivation. In distinction to agriculture, agriculture doesn't embody large-scale crop production or farm animal production. Agriculture medical aid is intentional use of plants and plant-related activities to push health and well-being of people or teams. In Canada, agriculture medical aid has been more {and more} used as an evidence-based on observes over the past sixty years. The same session of Agriculture and Horticulture Conference deals with the subsequent fields.

Track 5Pesticides and Fertilizers

Agricultural conference mainly focuses on Pesticides and Fertilizers which has the capability to improve the plant growth when applied in suitable amounts. When over-applied, fertilizers can increase insect and disease issues. Amendment of soil with fertilizers and pesticides strongly influences a range of soil functions and properties. They are mentioned according to whether they provide a unique nutrient (e.g., K, P, or N), in which case they are defined as "straight fertilizers." "Multi nutrient fertilizers" (or "complex fertilizers") provide two or more nutrients, for example N and P. Using pesticides decrease the amount of time required to manually vanish weeds and pests from the fields. Agriculture and Horticulture Conference provides an opportunity to explore the present strategies in the field of Pesticides and fertilizers.

Track 6: Agriculture and Environment

Agriculture conference mainly focuses on the environmental impact of agriculture varies based on the wide variety of agricultural practices hire around the world. Eventually, the environmental effect depends on the production application of the system used by farmers

The environmental effect of agriculture include a variety of factors from the soil to water, the air, animal and soil diversity, people, plants, and the food itself. Some of the environmental problems that are related to agriculture are climate change, deforestation, genetic engineering, irrigation issues, pollutants, soil degradation, and waste. Agriculture conference gives a chance to researchers and scientist to expand the advanced and latest research developments in the field of Agriculture and Environment.

Track 7: Soil & Water Management

Agriculture conference focusses on soil which provides ecosystem necessary for plants and animal life. Soil acts as a base medium provide habitat, water, and nutrition to living organisms. The soil is used as a holding and interacting facility for nutrients, microorganisms, plants and water. The soil is responsible for Agro ecosystems and Eco-agriculture which indirectly help in food security. Soil purifies groundwater, provides nutrients, help in the growth of plants and regulate the Earth's temperature. Industrial, household, and non-point source pollution negatively influence soil environment and finally the whole ecosystem. In recent decades, scientists have developed new practices which limit the mobility of contaminants which reduce pollution. Agriculture conference gives a chance to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and new research growth in the field of Soil Science.

Track 8Soil Fertility

Agriculture Conference focuses on soil fertility. It is the ability of soil to provide all the essential plant nutrients in available form. The soil which contains nutrients by is nature is known as inherent fertility. The fertility developed by application of manures and fertilizers is known as acquired fertility. This is said to be fertile when it contains all the required nutrients in the right proportion. Soil purifies groundwater, provides nutrients, help in the growth of plants and regulate the Earth's temperature. Scientists have developed certain practices which improves the fertility of the soil.

Track 9: Greenhouse & Horticulture

 A miniature greenhouse is called as a cold frame. The interior of a greenhouse exposed to sunlight becomes significantly warmer than the external ambient temperature, protecting its contents in cold weather. The primary crops grown in greenhouses include pepper, tomato, cucumber, lettuce, and herbs. 

Agriculture event focusses on horticulture that deals with the art, science, technology, and business of fruits, vegetables, flowers and ornamental plants. It includes production, improvement, marketing and scientific analysis of medicinal plant, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, herbs, sprouts, mushrooms, algae, flowers, seaweeds and non-food crops such as grass and ornamental trees and plants. It also deals with species conservation, landscape restoration, landscape and garden design, management, and maintenance, research, and marketing. These fields apply their knowledge, skills, and technologies to grow plants for human food and non-food uses like garden or landscape design, decorations etc. Agriculture conference provides an opportunity to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of Horticulture.

Track 10: Rice Research

Agriculture conference focusses on the rice research. Rice is one of the most consumed cereals in the world as a food product. Rice is the seed of the grass species Oryza sativa (Asian rice) or Oryza Glauber Rima (African rice). For example a cereal grain, it is the most commonly consumed staple food for a large part of the world's human population. Since a large portion of maize crops are grown for purposes other than human consumption, rice is the most important ounce with regard to human nutrition and caloric intake, as long as more than one fifth of the calories expended worldwide by humans. Agriculture conference offers an opportunity to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and modern research growths in the field of Rice Research.

Track 11Agricultural Economics

Agriculture Conference focuses on agricultural economics, which is a division of applied economics that habits both microeconomic and macroeconomic tools to explain harms in particular areas. The field of agricultural economics can go hind to the study of land economics. Research on agricultural economics has tackled the decline in agricultural production earnings and correspondence of farmers' costs and supply. Regarding natural resources, agricultural economists have developed quantitative tools for improving land management, preventing corrosion, managing pests, protecting biodiversity, and preventing disease in livestock. Soil ecosystem, Water scarcity and Agroforestry are the major fields covered in the sessions of Agriculture and Horticulture Conference

Track 12: Food & Nutrients

Agriculture conference focusses on the subject Food & Nutrients. Although many people think that food and nutrition mean the same thing, they don’t. Food refers to the plants and animals we consume. These foods contain the energy and nutrients our bodies need to maintain life and support growth and health. Nutrition, in contrast, is a science. Specifically, it is the science that studies food and how food nourishes our bodies and influences our health. It identifies the processes by which we consume, digest, metabolize, and store the nutrients in foods, and how these nutrients affect our bodies. Nutrition also includes studying the aspects that influence our eating patterns, making references about the amount we should eat of each type of food, maintaining food safety, and addressing issues related to the global food supply. When compared with other scientific disciplines such as chemistry, biology, and physics, nutrition is a relative newcomer. Food policy & applied nutrition

 

 

Introduction:

Canada is the world's huge agricultural producers and exporters. Like other developed countries, the proportion of GDP dedicated to population and agriculture dramatically declined in the 20th century, which is an important element of the Canadian economy. The vast agriculture in Canada is practiced from Oar’s vast wheat field to the summer production of the Okanagan Valley. In the federal government, Canada's agricultural profile is the responsibility of agriculture and agricultural food departments. Canada agriculture reaches the lives of people all over the world, from scientific research and technological changes to expensive contributions to the Canadian economy.

Scope and Importance:

The agricultural sector plays a strategic role in the process of national economic development. It has already contributed greatly to the economic prosperity of developed countries and its role in the economic development of the least developed countries is extremely important. An increase in agricultural output and an increase in productivity tend to make a big contribution to economic development throughout the country, and it is considered reasonable and appropriate to focus on further development of the agricultural sector. Agriculture, whether undeveloped, developing or developed, is a fundamental source of food supply in all countries of the world. Due to the sharp rise in the population of developing and developing countries and its rapid increase, food demand is rapidly increasing. In short, it can be said that the prosperity of the country depends on the prosperity of agriculture.

Research Value:

Increased research is needed on the management of the natural resources on which agriculture depends - soil, water, plants and animals. More efficient management strategies are needed for both soil and water. Research is needed to improve irrigation and to improve technologies for the protection and conservation of both soil and water. In addition, the research agenda must address issues of appropriate technologies for the conservation, maintenance and utilization of the diversity of biological resources needed on the farm.

Business Value of Agriculture in Canada:

In 19thcentury, agriculture was the single most common occupation, employing 1 million Canadians and accounting for one-third of all jobs. By 2008, about 327,000 people were primarily employed in agriculture, accounting for 1.8% of the labor force. The food manufacturing industry straightly employed 26,698 people and tobacco products manufacturing industry employed another 26,695 people. This total of 252,947workers accounted for 15.1% of the total employment in manufacturing. Green house production was enlarge, making crops like tomatoes, cucumbers and green peppers more obtainable year round. In 1986, there were 7.2 million square meter under glass. By 2006, greenhouse area had tripled to 21.9 million square meter.

Future prospect:

Even as technology changes, agriculture adapts and could never become obsolete -even in a time when it might conceivably be vastly different from what it might have been at the dawn of agriculture. After all, we are always going to need to increase the number of crops we grow for food and for clothing, dyes and oils, seed development and engineering to manage with the growing require of the world's population, even if the picture is not as exposed as the most unchanging concerns might suggest. Today, agriculture is as much a science as an art. With a need to expose with the growing needs of the planet's population, and to find ways to keep producing food and other crops as we develop into marginal landscapes, and modify to a changing climate, changes in agriculture practices, food technology and bio technology will continue to be a huge part of human civilization.

Conclusion:

Value added is rooted in the branding of health, quality, regional or other attributes corresponding to consumer demand. It appears in the growing confidence of consumers about food and high premiums for Canadian products across national borders. Canada is a country rich in resources and can produce high quality products in large quantities. However, in order for Canada products to remain competitive and acquire new markets, the value-added attributes must play an important role in future Canadian agricultural and agricultural systems.
