Conference10th International Symposium on Plant-Soil Interaction at Low pH (10th PSILPH2018)
Abbreviated titleAchieving Sustainable Food Production on Acid Soils
OtherThe main objective of the symposium is to address issues related to sustainable food production on soils with low pH, with the intention of achieving environmental sustainability.

In tropical regions of the globe, soils with low pH are very common due to the prevailing weather conditions of high temperature and high rainfall all the year round. Low pH soils can cause injuries to the plant root systems, inhibiting overall plant growth. Agriculture and agronomic practices are continuously being developed and/or improved to overcome the problems, facing growers without necessarily neglecting the environment.

In line with the symposium theme “Achieving Sustainable Food Production on Acid Soils, the 10th PSILPH aims to gather researchers, scientists, experts and academicians in the field of soil science, plant physiology and others to share and discuss the latest research findings and thoughts on current status of agriculture production and practices; thus, ensuring food security and environmental sustainability.
