Welcome from the Chairs

Dear colleagues,

The world’s agricultural systems face a great balancing act between two challenges: (1) raise the production of high quality and safe food on the available farmland to feed the global population expected to increase to more than 9.3 billion by 2050, and (2) reduce agriculture’s impact on the environment. Balancing these two challenges presents the major focus for scientists, extension specialists and producers, which mandates an intelligent use of resources in agriculture production. Agricultural production depends to a large extent on limited, non-renewable, and strategic resources: soil, water, nutrients and energy.

The global pandemic has forced us to restrain traveling and to reflect on our ability to endow future generations with substantial scientific advances. Reduced mobility stimulates us to maintain connections with the scientific network using the available technologies. This conference is an opportunity to communicate our shared passion for agronomy.

The conference will include seven special sections which embrace the most important research opportunities in Agronomy. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

1. Application of New Breeding Technologies to Crop Improvement
2. Sustainable Management Practices for Soil Health and Food Security
3. Agronomic Innovations for Sustainable Intensification of Horticultural Production Systems
4. Challenges in Grassland Agro-Ecology in a Global Change Context
5. Weed Invasion, Biology and Management in Agricultural Settings
6. Sustainable and Resilient Farming Systems
7. Precision and Digital Agriculture

While our virtual conference will be a different experience from the traditional gatherings we all know and love, this virtual conference will allow us to connect in new ways while keeping our carbon footprints low and maintaining social distancing. Your presentation will be accessible to hundreds of researchers around the world. Hopefully, it will be a more inclusive and sustainable way of meeting because of the absence of registration fees and travel costs.

We warmly invite our colleagues from across the world to be part of this exciting event.

Speakers

Dr. Gianni Bellocchi

Dr. Gianni Bellocchi is the session chair of session "Challenges in Grassland Agro-Ecology in a Global Change Context" in this conference. He is a research director at the Grassland Ecosystem Research Unit (UREP) of the French National Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE). With expertise in agro-climatic and hydrological modelling, his research focusses on two main issues: the study of agro-ecosystem responses to environmental variables and management, and the development of participatory approaches to evaluate the simulation models used to study these responses. Oriented towards the modelling of carbon and nitrogen cycles in grasslands, his research interests range from sequestration/emission processes to the links between plant diversity and biogeochemical processes. In 2013–2016, he coordinated the EU-FP7 project MODEXTREME (MODelling vegetation response to EXTREMe events), in tandem with projects of the Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture Food Security and Climate Change, where he directed several activities of model inter-comparison for the simulation of production and biogeochemical variables in grasslands and field crops. In 2018-2019, as coordinator of the French project MODIPRAS (Modelling the relationships between species diversity, the functioning of grassland systems and their capacity to provide ecosystem services), he has addressed the incorporation of plant diversity dynamics into biogeochemical models. He is currently leading modelling tasks in the European Joint Programming on agricultural soil management and sits on the Editorial Boards of Agronomy, Agronomy for Sustainable Development and Atmosphere.

Dr. Catherine Picon-Cochard

Dr. Catherine Picon-Cochard is a research director and the head of the Grassland Ecosytem Research Unit (UREP) of the French National Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment (INRAE). Her main resarch topic is to understand how climate change and management affect populations, species and communities of perennial grassland, at above and below-ground levels. Ecophysiological and morphological traits of leaves and roots are studied for semi-controlled and field experiments. Manipulation of climate change drivers (drought, atmospheric CO2, warming) are applied in the field in order to predict the evolution of grassland properties (production, quality, extreme drought resistance and resilience). More recently, she coordinates research in agrivoltaism in sheep grazed grassland.

Dr. Massimiliano Probo

Dr. Massimiliano Probo is the head of the Grazing Systems Group in the Animal Production Systems and Animal Health Research Division at Agroscope, Switzerland. His main research fields are grassland ecology and management, above all in mountain ecosystems. Over the past 15 years he has worked on the relationshiphs among plant functional traits, botanical composition, biodiversity conservation, forage yield and quality, grassland management, feeding preferences by livestock, and milk quality. Currently, he is leading a national project on the use of robust livestock to develop sylvo-pastoral systems on extensive alpine shrub-encroached pastures. Since 2018, he is the head of the Western Switzerland Section of the Swiss Grassland Society.

Prof. Xian Xue

Dr. Xian Xue is the head of the Department of Desert and Desertification in the Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Her main research fields are desertification and restoration, climate and environmental change in the arid and cold regions. From 2002 to 2010, Dr. Xue's research focused on the dynamic process and mechanism of desertification and its rehabilitation in Northern China. Since 2010, she led a 10-year warming and grazing experiment in Qinghai-Tibet Plateau to explore the impact of global warming and human activity on the alpine ecosystem and land degradation. Currently, she is leading a national project on the survey of the desert ecosystem on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau. Dr. Xue is also the director of the salinization research station of NIEER. She leads the station members to restore the degraded land in the drylands by integrating water management, sustainable agriculture, and biological techniques.
