ICDA 2018

International Conference on Dry Zone Agriculture-2018

01st & 02nd November 2018

“Multifaceted Technology for Dry Zone Agriculture”

After wandering in disarray for a quarter century, having fairly firmly established in Ariviyal Nagar, Kilinochchi, the Faculty of Agriculture envisages a successful display of ICDA-2018, its fourth endeavour in the venture. The Faculty is in anticipation and speculates a better performance this year investigating and researching into Agricultural Technology in all its features and functions seeking to address sustainable production and food security of the nation. Opportunity and access to multidisciplinary technological knowhow is essential for a struggling economy.  Climate change and its’ consequences present a formidable task to contend with. Technology now in the Dry Zone Region should task-engage both climate change and poverty. The farmer family should be delivered from these elements and set on their feet with help from the revised technology.  ICDA-2018 will bring together eminent researchers of the local and international community in all disciplines related to Agricultural science.  The conference will focus on Dry Zone Agriculture with special emphasis on Agriculture and Technology by providing a platform for the delegates to disseminate their research findings.

Sub-themes of the conference are;

  • Agricultural Economics & Extension
