The conference will be followed by CASI Field Trips and Workshops from June 29 to July 1, 2022:

Conservation Agriculture is a farming system that promotes minimum soil disturbance (i.e., no tillage), maintenance of a permanent soil cover, and diversification of plant species.  It enhances biodiversity and natural biological process above and below the ground surface, which contribute to increased water and nutrient use efficiency and to improved and sustained crop production.  Sustainable Intensification (SI) is a concept that aims to improve resource use efficiency and enhance productivity of farms without creating negative environmental or social impacts. SI requires the efficient use of labor and access to appropriate mechanization and tools for efficient management of agricultural land.  SI not only takes into consideration components of biophysical sciences but also social sciences to measure impacts on multiple domains of social, human condition, economic, environment, and productivity (SHEEP).  Conservation agriculture for sustainable intensification aligns with several of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, is climate smart and is resilient. Under the context of CA4SI abstracts are requested on:

  • Horticulture and CASI
  • Grains and CASI
  • Livestock or Poultry and CASI
  • Aquaculture (Fish Innovation Lab) and CASI
  • Wild Gardens or Cover Crops and CASI
  • Holistic Planned Grazing and CASI
  • Urban Gardening and CASI
  • Agroforestry and CASI
  • Permaculture and CASI
  • Farming Systems and CASI
  • Enabling Environments and CASI
  • Gender and Youth and CASI
  • Nutrition and Human Health and CASI
  • Policy and CASI
  • Marketing and CASI

In addition, in your abstracts provide which indicator or set of indicators your presentation can be classified based on the Sustainable Intensification Assessment Framework.   The set of indicators are organized into the five SHEEP domains: Social, Human condition, Economics, Environment, and Productivity.   For more details on the sustainable intensification framework visit link.   Deadline for oral and/or poster abstract submission is March 31, 2022.
