Importance & scope
 
People become depend more and more on plants as a direct source of the protein in their diet. There is an urgent need to diversify our agriculture and find new non- competitive crops that can be grown profitably by farmers. The agricultural research service now expending approximately $1.5 Million per year in the search for new crops for new uses. Many valuable plants cannot be held as seed but must be maintained by vegetative propagation. The agricultural research service is now making inventories of such stocks being held at various states. The new crops research maintaining approximately 25,000 clonal stocks of fruits. Biological seed treatment market was USD 739.3 Million in 2017 projected to reach USD 1,251.4 Million by 2022. The plant growth chambers market is projected to reach USD 485.6 Million by 2022 from USD 398.2 Million in 2017. Controlled- release fertilizers market is projected to reach USD 2.12 Billion by 2022 from USD 1.56 Billion in 2017. The plant growth regulators market is estimated to be valued at 2.11 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach a value of USD 2.93 Billion by 2022. The global demand for plant growth regulators is increasing due to growing demand for organic food. Agricultural enzymes find wide applications in grains, oilseeds, pulses, vegetables, cerals and turf. The seed market is primarily driven by the consumption of its end products and is gaining awareness among the farmers.
 
The genetic supply industry will try to satisfy the growing demand by increasing the yield and quality of grain produced, possibly making an expanded acreage unnecessary. Yield increases over the past 45 years suggest that optimism is not unreasonable. During that time the population doubled, yield on the best land tripled, while acreage remained static. The feed-to-meat conversion efficiency also doubled, it now takes only 4 pounds of grain to produce 1 pound of pork, and further increases in this efficiency can be expected to contribute to future increases in productivity. Although it costs more to produce today’s high yields, wealth has increased faster than the costs. Food accounts for half as much of our income today (11%) as it did 45 years ago. Past gains in productivity were achieved by improved mechanization and agricultural chemicals, in addition to genetic improvements. Future gains will depend increasingly on genetics, with some sectors of the agricultural chemical industry being replaced by genetics (e.g., insecticides and fungicides). It is encouraging to note that at the same time productivity was tripling soil erosion per ton of food produced was cut by two-thirds.
 
Genomics will accelerate the application of gene technology to agriculture. As previously described, this technology will enhance food security, by increasing productivity, and food safety, by eliminating mycotoxins. There is a third benefit, derived from the first two: increased wealth. By accelerating the application of technology, genomics significantly increases the value of seeds and agricultural products. This increase adds much wealth to the customers, company owners, employees, and citizens of the nations in which genetic supply companies operate, and to both producing and importing nations whose food costs consequently are decreased.
 
Asia
 
Developing nations of Asia have come a long way since the food crises of the 1960s. Over the last 30 years, higher productivity gains have been achieved, thanks to agricultural technologies such as high yielding varieties of rice and wheat, chemical inputs, irrigation, and improved cropping systems. Between 1970 and 1995, per capita gross domestic product increased by 190%, cereal production doubled, and calorie availability per person increased by 24% (Asian Development Bank [ADB], 2001). In 1975, one out of every two Asians lived in poverty. By 1995, this ratio fell to one in four.
 
Many Asian governments—including China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam—have given high priority to plant biotechnology research in the hope of addressing the pressing challenges related to improving productivity, farmers' livelihoods, driving rural development, and meeting food security demands.
 
USA
 
Decades of documented evidence demonstrates that agricultural biotechnology is a safe and beneficial technology that contributes to both environmental and economic sustainability. Farmers choose biotech crops because they increase yield and lower production costs. Farmers get a greater financial return while using more environmentally friendly farming practices through the use of agricultural biotechnology.
 
U.S. farm income benefits from 1996-2007 are estimated at nearly $20 billion resulting from enhanced productivity and efficiency gains from agricultural biotechnology.
 
Herbicide Reduction Biotech varieties have dramatically reduced farmers’ reliance on pesticide applications: Since 1997, the use of pesticides on global biotech crop acreage has been reduced by 790 million pounds, an 8.8 percent reduction. Biotech Crops: Evidence, Outcomes and Impacts 1996-2007: Focus on Environmental Impacts. PG Economics Ltd., UK.) Through biotechnology, more specialized herbicides have been replaced by a smaller number of safer, broad spectrum compounds with reduced environmental impacts.
 
Why Frankfurt ?
 
Frankfurt is the business and financial centre of Germany and the largest city in the German state of Hesse. Frankfurt – the financial centre of the continent, the European city, the transport hub, the smallest metropolis in the world. Those who think of the city on the Main, think of the airport, the Paulskirche and Goethe, think of the Stock Exchange, the Book Fair and the skyline. There is no doubt about it; Frankfurt brings opposites together in a charming way. A city with a savoir-vivre, in whose streets multilingualism is an accepted way of life. At the same time, the flair of the global city and homely cosiness are often just a few steps apart.
 
With members from around the world focused on learning about Plant Genomics and its advances; this is your best opportunity to reach the largest assembly of participants from the Plant Science and Genomics community.  This conference seek to bring all such scientist, Noble Laureate, researcher, research scholar, students and people together who are involved in Plant Science and Genomics field and provide them to discuss about their unique innovation, sharing ideas and interaction with each other. World-renowned speakers, the most recent development and advancement in the field of plant genomics are the limelight of the conference.
 
Agriculture was expanded during the 1960s and 1970s as it had access to new land and unemployed labour. Between 1962 and 1983, the agricultural sector grew by 6.1% a year on average and in 1980 it employed over 78% of the working population. Yet, the state perceived developments in the agricultural sector as necessary for industrialization and exports were taxed in order to keep domestic prices low and raise revenue for state investment in other areas of the economy.

Sessions and Tracks

Track 01: Plant and Environment
 
Plants form the basis of most food chains on the planet. To pass on their genes, plants must find mates, avoid being eaten and compete for resources in an ever-changing environment — all while being rooted to the spot. They have evolved a myriad of strategies to deal with these environmental challenges.
 
Most adaptation strategies are chemical, many involving the production of secondary metabolites, such as alkaloids and steroids, which we, in turn, rely on as the basis of our pharmacological recipe book. Some 100,000 secondary metabolites have been discovered thus far, and technological advances will probably see this number double in the next decade.
 
The environment shapes plants, but plants also influence the environment. They store carbon, fix nitrogen and produce oxygen1. They shape weather patterns, provide flood defense, purify water, provide food, and offer solace and inspiration.
 
With nearly 7 billion humans affecting the environmental composition of the planet, however, plants are being forced to function under conditions outside their recent evolutionary experience, and it is unclear what the knock-on effects will be. Modelling studies are beginning to unravel the links between our changing environment and ecosystem health, but more research is needed to inform legislation.

Track 2: Plant Science and Natural Products
 
Transgenes appear to be particularly sensitive to epigenetic variation which can lead to transgene silencing, i.e. the complete or partial inactivation of transgene expression. Plants are ideal model systems to study the influence of changing environmental conditions on epigenetic patterns. We are especially interested to understand how certain genomic regions become targets for epigenetic modification and how environmental stress affects epigenetic gene regulation. Our applied work investigates how transgene silencing can be prevented and how epigenetic variation can be exploited for novel breeding strategies.

Track 06: Biodiversity and Evolution of Plants
 
Humankind has affected our planet in many ways. In the past few centuries the changes in society and the "Biodiversity" is the full complexity and variety of life, at all scales, from genetic diversity, up to species and even ecosystem diversity. So, we use the term "biodiversity conservation" to refer to attempts to conserve and any parts of this natural diversity. Plant diversity is a major plant of total biodiversity - just think of the richness of tropical rain forests -.it forms the basis of all food webs and underpins the functioning of all ecosystems. So, plant conservation is an essential component of efforts for biodiversity conservation. As plants are at risk of extinction, in all parts of the world, their conservation is a priority.
