Large Farm Management 2013: Know-how for large agricultural holdings

21.08.2013
International conference in Kiev, Ukraine, 19-20 September 2013

More than 500 participants are anticipated to attend the international conference ‘Large Farm Management: Organization and Strategy’ in Kiev, Ukraine, on 19 and 20 September. The event will be held for the fourth time and is deemed in CIS states and in Europe as the leading forum for discussing issues and problems of large farm management.

The conference is hosted by the Association Ukrainian Agribusiness Club (UCAB) with support of IAMO and the Federation of German Industries' Committee on Eastern European Economic Relations. Interested parties are invited to register.

High-profile keynote speakers will introduce four panel discussions which will deal with the following main topics:

• Global development trends in agricultural productivity: What is the importance of farm size?
• Productivity and know-how: How to achieve maximum yields?
• Human resources: Successful qualified staff recruitment and retention schemes
• Effective governance structures for modern agribusiness: Priorities and challenges

A field trip is scheduled for the second conference day. Participants will visit the Industrial Milk Company, an agricultural holding with properties of 140 000 hectares of land and 3 000 dairy cows. In addition, the conference provides opportunities of meeting and discussing with many senior executives and representatives of farm businesses, food producers, government and research institutions.

Detailed information about the conference program, conference fees and registration formalities are provided in the program (http://www.iamo.de/uploads/media/Large_Farm_Management_2013_PROGRAM_EN.PDF) and in the conference website at:

About IAMO
The Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Central and Eastern Europe (IAMO) analyses economic, social and political processes of change in the agricultural and food sector, and in rural areas. The geographic focus covers the enlarging EU, transition regions of Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe, as well as Central and Eastern Asia. IAMO is making a contribution towards enhancing understanding of institutional, structural and technological changes. Moreover, IAMO is studying the resulting impacts on the agricultural and food sector as well as the living conditions of rural populations. The outcomes of our work are used to derive and analyse strategies and options for enterprises, agricultural markets and politics. Since its foundation in 1994, IAMO has been part of the Leibniz Association, a German community of independent research institutes.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
