Title: Sustainable transfer of concepts for global adaptation of smart farming to mitigate climate change due to agriculture
Biography: Ganesh C Bora
Optimized the use of chemicals and fertilizer by adapting precision agriculture (PA), has positive economic and environmental impact and increase in crop yield. PA technology is component of smart farming resulting in reduction of GHG emissions, aiding in mitigating climate change impacts. Similar technology with adaptive modifications/customization can be used in developing countries. Policy makers along with scientist, academicians and progressive farmers in South and South-East Asia have substantial influence on development of modern agricultural methodologies. The technology is there and some of the large farmers have started to use it for economic benefits. The adaptation of analytic techniques with importance of Q certificate, carbon balance, livelihood adjustment due to change in climate is being studied in Bangladesh, India, Thailand and Vietnam. The impact of global change research by practicing PA technology with advanced mechanization is assessed by reducing agricultural inputs and its effect on CHG emission in these countries. The impact is substantial in terms of crop yield increase as well as on the environment.
