Agriculture has been the very key to human sustainability since the beginning of time. Humans began to domesticate animals and plants for consumption and other purposes about 11, 500 years ago! Malaysia is currently ranked 41st on the Global Security Food Index (GSFI), with a heavy reliance on imports for essential food products. Additionally, Malaysia has been a prominent country in ASEAN in terms of Agricultural Research and Development. There is plenty of valuable and impactful research developed in universities and research institutes. Nonetheless, the research translation process to be applied in agricultural settings is the overriding issue which includes Mechanization and Automation in Modern Farming, Breakthrough of Agri-biotechnology in Malaysia and Cultivating Sustainable Energy from Bioresources.
In the 5th instalment of the Hyper Interdisciplinary Conference in Malaysia, with the theme, Unlocking Frontier Agricultural Technology towards Food Security and Sustainability, we hope to expose the research findings/innovations from universities and research institutes to corporate attention and create future collaboration across different institutes and disciplines. The time is now to gather great minds to discuss and generate solutions for a future that ensures food security and sustainability for the mass population!
