III International Symposium on Underutilized Plant Species

Tamil Nadu, India

The focus on a few widely used species has helped to sustain the explosion in human population over the last twenty five decades. But it has dramatically narrowed the number of species upon which global food security and general economic agricultural pursues depend. With over half of humanity's calorific and protein needs being met by three crops – maize, wheat and rice – humankind faces a highly vulnerable situation and an urgent action to promote crop diversification is needed.
In this context, the 3rd ISUPS is scheduled to be held from 5th - 8th August, 2015 at AC & RI, Madurai as a mark of its Golden Jubilee celebrations, under the auspices of Tamil Nadu Agricultural University (TNAU) in collaboration with International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS), Belgium, to explore and conserve the underutilized plant species.
