Track 1 : Soil Management
As indicated by the EPA, rural soil administration practices can prompt creation and discharge of nitrous oxide (N2O), a noteworthy nursery gas and air toxin. Exercises that can add to N2O emanations incorporate compost utilization, water system and culturing. The administration of soils records for over portion of the discharges from the Agriculture part. Dairy cattle domesticated animals represent 33% of outflows, through methane discharges. Fertilizer administration and rice development additionally discharge emissions. Methods that essentially upgrade carbon sequestration in soil incorporate no-till cultivating, build up mulching, cover trimming, and product turn, all of which are more generally utilized as a part of natural cultivating than in traditional cultivating. Since just 5% of US farmland presently utilizes no-till and deposit mulching, there is a huge potential for carbon sequestration Soil management As indicated by the EPA, rural soil administration practices can prompt creation and discharge of nitrous oxide (N2O), a noteworthy nursery gas and air toxin.

Track 2 : Crop Diversity
Trim differences is the fluctuation in hereditary and phenotypic qualities of plants utilized as a part of agribusiness. Two parts of this are the hereditary differing qualities inside every product (inside harvest differences), and the quantity of species ordinarily developed (between-yield assorted qualities); both segments have by and large declined as a worldwide pattern in the previous 50 years. Trim differences misfortune debilitates worldwide sustenance security, as the world's human populace relies on upon a lessening number of assortments of a decreasing number of product species. Yields are progressively developed in monoculture, implying that if, as in the notable Irish Potato Famine, a solitary ailment beats an assortment's resistance, it might annihilate a whole reap, or as on account of the 'Gross Michel' banana, may bring about the business termination of a whole assortment
Track 3 : Genetic Modification
Hereditary designing, additionally called hereditary change, is the immediate control of a living being's genome utilizing biotechnology. It is an arrangement of progressions used to change the hereditary cosmetics of cells, including the exchange of qualities inside and diagonal over species limits to create enhanced or novel creatures. New DNA might be embedded in the host genome by first separating and replicating the hereditary material of enthusiasm utilizing atomic cloning techniques to create a DNA succession, or by combining the DNA, and after that embeddings this develop into the host living being. Qualities might be evacuated, or "thumped out", utilizing a nuclease. Quality focusing on is an alternate strategy that utilizations homologous recombination to change an endogenous quality, and can be utilized to erase a quality, expel exons, include a quality, or present point transformations
Track 4 : Composting
At the least complex level, the way toward fertilizing the soil basically requires making a load of wetted natural matter identified as green waste (leaves, nourishment waste) and sitting tight for the materials to separate into humus following a time of weeks or months. Cutting edge, orderly treating the soil is a multi-step, nearly checked process with measured contributions of water, air, and carbon-and nitrogen-rich materials. The deterioration procedure is supported by destroying the plant matter, including water and guaranteeing appropriate air circulation by frequently turning the blend. Worms and organisms promote separate the material
Track 5 : Weed Management
Various plant species are considered weeds in agronomic editing frameworks. Weeds have numerous ascribes undesirable to harvest makers, not the slightest being the capacity to decrease edit yields through rivalry for assets, for example, daylight, water, supplements, and space. Weeds likewise may harbor creepy crawlies and give a host to certain plant pathogens. Some weed species, for example, wild garlic and eastern dark nightshade, can lessen the nature of the collected yield.
Track 6 : Biological Pest Control
Organic control is a technique for controlling irritations, for example, creepy crawlies, vermin, weeds and plant infections utilizing other organisms. It depends on predation, parasitism, herbivore, or other characteristic systems, however normally additionally includes a dynamic human administration part. It can be an imperative part of incorporated irritation administration programs. There are three essential sorts of organic bug control techniques: importation (in some cases called traditional organic control), in which a characteristic adversary of a vermin is presented in the trust of accomplishing control; growth, in which locally-happening regular adversaries are reared and discharged to enhance control; and protection, in which measures are taken to expand normal foes, for example, by planting nectar-creating crop plants in the outskirts of rice fields
Track 7 : Livestock Management
Domesticated animals are tamed creatures brought up in a farming setting to deliver items, for example, nourishment, fiber, and work. The term is regularly used to allude exclusively to those raised for sustenance, and now and then just cultivated ruminants, for example, steers and goats. As of late, a few associations have likewise raised domesticated animals to advance the survival of uncommon breeds. The rearing, support, and butcher of these creatures, known as creature cultivation, is a segment of cutting edge horticulture that has been polished in numerous societies since humankind's move to cultivating from seeker gatherer ways of life.

Track 9 : Biodynamic Agriculture
Biodynamic horticulture is a type of option agribusiness fundamentally the same as natural cultivating, however which incorporates different elusive ideas drawn from the thoughts of Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925).Initially created in the 1920s, it was the first of the natural farming movements. It treats soil ripeness, plant development, and animals mind as biologically interrelated tasks, underscoring otherworldly and mysterious viewpoints
Track 10 : Agro Ecology
Agro ecology is the investigation of natural procedures connected to farming creation frameworks. The prefix agro-alludes to farming. Conveying natural standards to hold up under in agro ecosystems can recommend novel administration approaches that would not generally be considered. The term is frequently utilized loosely and may allude to "a science, a development. “Agro ecologists study an assortment of agro ecosystems, and the field of agro ecology is not connected with any one specific technique for cultivating, whether it be natural, coordinated, or traditional; serious or broad. Despite the fact that it has a great deal more regular deduction and standards with a portion of the before specified cultivating frameworks
Track 11 : Permaculture
Permaculture is an arrangement of agrarian and social plan standards focused on recreating or straightforwardly using the examples and components saw in regular biological communities. Permaculture was created, and the term instituted by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in 1968.It has numerous branches that incorporate however are not restricted to biological outline, natural building, ecological plan, development and coordinated water assets administration that creates reasonable design, regenerative and self-kept up living space and horticultural frameworks demonstrated from regular environments.
Track 12 : World Food Security
Sustenance security is a condition identified with the supply of nourishment, and people's entrance to it. Worries over nourishment security have existed all through history. There is proof of silos being used more than 10,000 years prior, with focal compelling voices in civic establishments including old China and old Egypt being known to discharge nourishment from capacity in times of starvation. At the 1974 World Food Conference the expression "nourishment security" was characterized with an accentuation on supply. Nourishment security, they said, is the "accessibility at all seasons of satisfactory world sustenance supplies of essential foodstuffs to manage a consistent development of sustenance utilization and to balance changes underway and prices" .Later definitions added request and get to issues to the definition. The last report of the 1996 World Food Summit expresses that nourishment security "exists when all individuals, at all times, have physical and monetary access to adequate, sheltered and nutritious sustenance to meet their dietary needs and sustenance inclinations for a dynamic and solid life"
Track 13 : Flower Farming (floriculture)
Floriculture, or flower farming, is a discipline of horticulture concerned with the cultivation of flowering and ornamental plants for gardens and for floristry, comprising the floral industry. The development, via plant breeding, of new varieties is a major occupation of floriculturists. Floriculture crops include bedding plants, houseplants, flowering garden and pot plants, cut cultivated greens, and cut flowers. As distinguished from nursery crops, floriculture crops are generally herbaceous.
Track 14 : Crop Rotation
Crop rotation is the practice of growing a series of dissimilar or different types of crops in the same area in sequenced seasons. It is done so that the soil of farms is not used to only one type of nutrient. It helps in reducing soil erosion and increases soil fertility and crop yield.
Track 15 : Bugs and Pests
A pest is any living organism which is invasive or prolific, detrimental, troublesome, noxious, destructive, a nuisance to either plants or animals, human or human concerns, livestock, or human structures. It is a loose concept, as an organism can be a pest in one setting but beneficial, domesticated or acceptable in another. The Hemiptera or true bugs are an order of insects comprising some 50,000 to 80,000 species of groups such as the cicadas, aphids, plant hoppers, leafhoppers, and shield bugs. They range in size from 1 mm (0.04 in) to around 15 cm (6 in), and share a common arrangement of sucking mouthparts. The name "true bugs" is sometimes limited to the suborder Heteroptera. Many insects commonly known as "bugs" belong to other orders.
Track 16 : Organic crop systems
Organic farming is an alternative agricultural system which originated early in the 20th century in reaction to rapidly changing farming practices. Organic agriculture continues to be developed by various organic agriculture organizations today. It relies on fertilizers of organic origin such as compost, manure, green manure, and bone meal and places emphasis on techniques such as crop rotation and companion planting. Biological pest control, mixed cropping and the fostering of insect predators are encouraged.
Track 17 : Plant Nutrition
Plant nutrition is the study of the chemical elements and compounds necessary for plant growth, plant metabolism and their external supply. In 1972, E. Epstein defined two criteria for an element to be essential for plant growth:
a) a) In its absence the plant is unable to complete a normal life cycle.
b) b) Or that the element is part of some essential plant constituent or metabolite.
Track 18 : Natural Agriculture (Natural Farming)
Natural Farming is a sustainable farming. Natural Farming makes all inputs from natural materials, observes the law of the Nature and respects the rights of crops and livestock. Natural Farming heals the soil slashed by chemicals, herbicide and machines. Where Natural Farming is practiced, the soil and water become clean and ecology is recovered. It is even being used as a tool to fight desertification.
Track 19 : Green Manures
Green manures are crops grown specifically for building and maintaining soil fertility and structure, though they may also have other functions. They are normally incorporated back into the soil, either directly, or after removal and composting. Green manures have generally been little used in the United Kingdom by conventional (nonorganic) producers, but have been enthusiastically adopted by organic producers.
Track 20 : Erosion Protection
Soil conservation is the prevention of soil loss from erosion or reduced fertility caused by over usage, acidification, salinization or other chemical soil contamination. Slash-and-burn and other unsustainable methods of subsistence farming are practiced in some lesser developed areas. A sequel to the deforestation is typically large scale erosion, loss of soil nutrients and sometimes total desertification. Techniques for improved soil conservation include crop rotation, cover crops, conservation tillage and planted windbreaks and affect both erosion and fertility. When plants, especially trees, die, they decay and become part of the soil. Code 330 defines standard methods recommended by the US Natural Resources Conservation Service.
Track 21 : Organic Dairy Form
Organic milk refers to a number of milk products from livestock raised according to organic farming methods. In most jurisdictions, use of the term "organic" or equivalents like "bio" or "eco", on any product is regulated by food authorities. In general these regulations stipulate that livestock must be: allowed to graze, be fed an organically certified fodder or compound feed, not be treated with most drugs (including growth hormone), and in general must be treated humanely.
Track 22 : Organic Movement
The organic movement broadly refers to the organizations and individuals involved worldwide in the promotion of organic farming and other organic products. It started around the first half of the 20th century, when modern large-scale agricultural practices began to appear.
Track 23 : Animal Manure
Manure is organic matter, mostly derived from animal feces except in the case of green manure, which can be used as organic fertilizer in agriculture. Manures contribute to the fertility of the soil by adding organic matter and nutrients, such as nitrogen, that are trapped by bacteria in the soil.
Track 24 : Integrated Farming System
Integrated Farming (IF) or integrated production is a whole farm management system which aims to deliver more sustainable agriculture. It is a dynamic approach which can be applied to any farming system around the world. It involves attention to detail and continuous improvement in all areas of a farming business through informed management processes. Integrated Farming combines the best of modern tools and technologies with traditional practices according to a given site and situation. In simple words, it means using many ways of cultivation in a small space or land.
Track 25 : Organic Marketing
Organic Marketing is same as Inbound Marketing. This can also be termed as C2B or Consumer to Business Marketing. In this type of marketing, the marketers try to brand themselves in all available and/or workable media to ensure that the consumers come to their business
Track 26 : Education in organic Farming
Organic farmers raise crops using natural pest control and fertilizers as well as other sustainable techniques, such as composting. ... Organic farmers spend a good deal of time outdoors, and their work can be physically demanding. A year-round, 7-day work week with long hours is common.
Track 27 : Organic grains, oil seeds other speciality crop
The science of crop production has advanced considerably with increased understanding of genetics, cellular biology, cellular physiology, soil plant interfaces, nutrient uptake, pest interactions, stress physiology, system biology, ecology, soil water relations, economics and basic soil and crop sciences.
Track 28 : Organic Sprays and Dusts
Organic dust toxic syndrome (ODTS) is a potentially severe flu-like syndrome originally described in farmers, mushroom workers, bird breeders and other persons occupationally exposed to dusty conditions. Pesticides are substances meant for attracting, seducing, and then destroying any pest. They are a class of biocide. The most common use of pesticides is as plant protection products, which in general protect plants from damaging influences such as weeds, fungi, or insects.
Track 29 : Organic Farming to Mitigate Climate Change
Organic agriculture has a significant role to play in addressing two of the world’s biggest and most urgent issues: climate change and food security. The aim of this guide is to explain how climate change mitigation and adaptation and food security are inseparable and inherent characteristics of organic agriculture. Organic agriculture has well established practices that simultaneously mitigate climate change, build resilient farming systems, reduce poverty and improve food security. Organic agriculture emits much lower levels of greenhouse gases (GHG), and quickly, affordably and effectively sequesters carbon in the soil.
