InterMET Asia is the only dedicated weather and climate services event for the Asia, Africa and Pacific regions that addresses how meteorology technology and data can be used to help solve problems caused by extreme weather and climate change. It brings together under one roof the global weather and climate industry with financial donor agencies and a senior audience from more than 25 countries, including representatives of national meteorological agencies and the private sector.
InterMET Asia 2016 is held annually in Singapore and 2016 will mark the third event since launch in 2014. It will take place from 16 – 18 March at Marina Bay Sands Exhibition & Conference Centre.
InterMET is supported by the Singapore National Environment Agency (NEA), the World Bank and the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO), and the Hydro-Meteorological Equipment Industry Association (HMEI). website: http://www.intermet.asia/

Agricontrol 2016

Aug 14, 2016 to Aug 17, 2016

Sensing, control, automation and mechanization have been an important means for increasing agricultural productivity, improving worker health and safety, optimizing resource utilization, and reducing labor requirements. AGRICONTROL 2016: The 5th IFAC Conference on Sensing, Control and Automation for Agriculture’ aims to bring together scientists, engineers, students and others working in these areas from around the world to share their latest results. The conference will provide an opportunity for learning the state-of-the-art and for discussion on past achievements, and future directions in precision and automated agriculture. The conference is also expected to provide a venue for leveraging the advances in other lateral technologies for enhancing the productivity in agriculture.

Food By the Numbers

Some 80 percent of U.S. fruits and vegetables are grown on large farms and trucked hundreds of miles to their final destination. To track a crop's travels, two National Geographic reporters followed a truck filled with strawberries from a central California field to a store near the magazine's headquarters in Washington, D.C....More at National Geographic.
