ESA 14 - Growing landscapes – Cultivating innovative agricultural systems:
The conference theme "Growing Landscapes - Cultivating innovative agricultural systems" recognizes that agriculture is the dominant use of land in Europe. Most of our landscapes are places where food and fibre is grown for our use, but they also provide us with a wide range of ecosystem goods and services. Agronomic research underpins the development and management of innovative agricultural systems from crop to field to landscape scale and seeks to balance the delivery of all ecosystem services from land. The 14th Congress of the European Society of Agronomy provides an opportunity to share the latest findings from research and practice, build new networks and collaborations and explore the relationship between land and food in Scotland – The Land of Food and Drink.
