Greetings

International Conference of Sustainable Agriculture (ICOSA) is an international conference that brings together relevant field experts, professors, researchers, policy makers, postdoctoral fellows, and research students from around the world, providing them with opportunity to report, present, share, and discuss scientific questions, achievements, issues and challenges in the agricultural field.

This conference consist of two main activities, namely plenary talk and parallel discussion. The plenary talk serves as a scientific forum enabling mutual information exchange and discussion among diverse stakeholder backgrounds and expertise regarding the latest yet globally happening issues in the agricultural sector. The parallel session is designated to facilitate the dissemination of valuable research progresses related to the selected scopes of studies. Scientific articles reflecting the results of a field study will be accepted, as well as review articles that contribute to the recognition of new research trends regarding circular economy and agriculture.

This 3th ICOSA measures in 29-30 November 2022 will facilitate networking, be able to exchange information and experimental results, discuss challenges encountered and solutions adopted and have opportunities to establish productive new academic and agricultural sectors collaborations. Therefore, it is our great pleasure to welcome you on behalf of the 3th ICOSA organizing committee, and to invite you to attend the ICOSA to be hosted in Medan, Sumatera Utara, Indonesia, by the Faculty of Agriculture, Universitas Muhammadiyah Sumatera Utara. The objective of this conference is not only to elaborate between academicians and practitioners around the world in the agricultural and bio industrial fields, but also to exhibit the history and culture of Medan.

Theme

“Circular Economy and Sustainable Development in Agriculture”

Sustainable development is a global priority that, since 2015, has received renewed interest following the publication of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Agriculture must become sustainable (SDG-2), focusing on production systems that respect the environment and help to reduce climate change (SDG-12). In this framework, circular economy and bioeconomy are the ideal tools for transforming conventional–linear agriculture into a more circular one, thus reducing, reusing, and recycling the inputs and outputs from agricultural activity. The aim of this special issue is to collect the research that is being conducted on the circular economy in agriculture in order to show the scientific community the new advances in the reduction in negative externalities from agriculture, new forms of sustainable production that reuse part of the plant waste as organic fertilizer, and new technologies and production structures that contribute to the reduction of certain agricultural inputs (water, fertilizer, etc.) or to the reduction of crop waste (debris).

Scope

 – Sustainabe agriculture

– Circular economy

– Bioeconomy

– Agricultural waste management

– New agricultural inputs

– Alternative crops

– Cost-benefit analysis

– New technologies
