Agriculture and Climate Change
Adapting Crops to Increased Uncertainty
15 - 17 February 2015, NH Grand Krasnapolsky Hotel, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The conference Agriculture and Climate Change: Adapting Crops to Increased Uncertainty will focus on the likely impact of climate change on crop production and explore approaches to maintain and increase crop productivity in the face of climate change.

Maintaining crop production to feed a growing population during a period of climate change is the greatest challenge we face as a species. 

The increasing crop yields during the Green Revolution in the last century were brought about mostly through the application of chemical fertilisers and pesticides (and during an uncommon period of climate stability). Yield increases have slowed and may go into decline as the world runs out of sources of phosphate and fossil energy used to produce nitrate fertilisers. New approaches to yield improvement are desperately needed to produce more climate resilient crops.
