Sustainable agriculture and forestry
The aim of sustainable agriculture is to supply sufficient food, feed, biomass and other raw-materials while safeguarding natural resources, such as water, soil and biodiversity, without compromising the ability of current or future generations to meet their needs. The trends of sustainable agriculture are oriented toward increasing the quality and value of agricultural products by delivering more sustainable and productive agriculture, including animal husbandry and forestry systems, which are diverse, resilient and resource-efficient. The trends of forestry are focused on the further development of production and sustainability of resource-efficient forestry systems, which are instrumental in the strengthening of forest resilience and biodiversity protection and which can meet increased biomass demand.
Current issues of the agricultural economy, rural development and landscape planning
Agricultural economics covers a wide range of issues like applied areas, having considerable overlap with conventional economics. It covers a wide range of matters concerning development, trade, macroeconomic policy implications, agribusiness, production and consumption, all the way to environmental and resource issues. The principles and methods of landscape planning need to be considered in the context of the environmental aspects of the national policy and national planning. The idea of environmentally sustainable development is a powerful factor currently determining strategic trends in approaches to the policy. Nature and environmental protection are viewed alongside economics as equally important goals.
Global trends and challenges in animal husbandry and veterinary medicine
Global trends in animal husbandry are oriented to address a challenge due to the necessity to produce larger quantities of high quality and affordable animal products in response to an increasing global demand while making that production systems sustainable from environmental, social and economic points of view. The challenges in animal husbandry are oriented to foster innovation adoption, to consolidation strategies, increasing productivity efficiencies, a fair distribution of profits along the food chain, economies of scale, which are focused on producing high quality, value-added products. Veterinary medicine is oriented to produce new drugs or vaccines and analysing the tissue culture to improve agricultural productivity, quality, diversity and species protection.
Climate-smart agriculture and food security
Climate-smart agriculture is an approach that involves increasing agricultural productivity by transforming and managing landscapes and agricultural systems to ensure food security keeping climate change in mind. The key objectives of Climate smart agriculture are sustainably improving agricultural productivity, building flexibility to climate change, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, wherever possible. The Climate Smart Agriculture approach simultaneously addresses food security and climate change while contributing to mitigating greenhouse gas emissions.
Digital agriculture and engineering
The current agriculture has converged with technologies such as information technology, biotechnology and environmental technology. It mainly focuses on areas such as cost reduction during production level, reduction in labour burden, high quality and organic production, and quality management in facilities. Digital agriculture and e engineering refer to the use of innovative agricultural technologies to collect, save, examine, and share electronic information along the agricultural value chain. It is also referred to as smart farming or e-agriculture. New technologies can provide the agricultural industry with ideas and a basis to make more informed decisions and improve crop productivity. Digital technologies provide farmers with the information and ability to meet these challenges and grab prospects for growth.
Environment in the context of climate change
Climate change affects all regions around the world. Climate change is human-induced, observed and projected long-term changes in climate averages, as well as climate variability, including anomalies such as droughts, severe storms and floods. Climate change is a development issue. In view of the possible impact of this phenomenon on many aspects of human life today, it is probably one of the important development issues. Adaptation involves taking action on the effects of climate change. This includes improving education, awareness and training on the impacts of climate change, as well as taking real steps such as planting drought-resistant plants and strengthening the protection.
