The vision of our faculty is to offer valuable learning experiences to our students and stimulate richer and sustainable quality of life for farming society in the Eastern region, the nation and the world. Mission of the faculty is to create a learning community. The Faculty organized an International symposium on Transformation for challenging Agriculture, in order to promote the research and capacity building in the field of Agriculture and to promote healthy Agriculture for the future.

About the Symposium

Food security and ensuring safe and nutritious food for all are the major global challenges. The demand for food is projected to increase by over 60% by 2050. However, availability of land and water resources for food production are limited. Global food production is also expected to decrease by 2% each decade for the next century due to climate change. Hence, adoption of new technologies and blending them with indigenous knowledge in food production is vital to produce more food with less land, water, and other inputs resources without harming our environment. In this context, the Faculty of Agriculture, Eastern University, Sri Lanka has decided to organize the 2nd International Symposium on Agriculture (ISA-2019) under the theme “Innovation and Invention on Sustainable Agriculture” on 9th January 2019. ISA-2019 takes the privilege to invite researchers, agriculturists, policy makers, engineers, economists, budding young scientists, students and all other enthusiastic participants to exchange their experiences, novel ideas and research findings in all aspects of agricultural science at the international forum with the global experts and to discuss practical challenges encountered and solutions to be adopted on sustainable agriculture.
