Soil Science Conference of Malaysia 2007 (SOILS 2007)
The Malaysian Society of Soil Science (MSSS), Department of Agriculture Sarawak (DOA), and UNDP/GEF in collaboration with the Incorporated Society of Planters (ISP) will hold the SOILS 2007 Conference in conjunction with MSSS Annual General Meeting on April 17-19, 2007 in Mukah, Sarawak.
The theme of the conference is PEAT AND OTHER SOIL FACTORS IN CROP PRODUCTION. In rain-fed agriculture on tropical soils, crop production is commonly limited by soil resources. A good understanding and proper management of soil resources is of utmost importance to optimize crop production, minimize production costs and maintaining or enhancing soil resources for future generations, which should lead to sustainable agriculture and forestry.
This conference provides an ideal platform to all involved in agriculture especially soil scientists, agronomists, agriculturists, crop scientists, planters (general managers and estate managers) and agro-based entrepreneurs to meet and present their latest research findings, exchange ideas and share experiences especially on soil science, peat soil management and crop production.
