Welcome to the official site of International Scientific and Practical E-Conference on Agriculture and Food Security "Anthropogenic evolution of modern soils and food production under changing of soil and climatic conditions"!

A man interferes into the nature processes in different ways. Discussing the ecological consequences of this interference, great accent is drawn to its forms which devastating effect on the natural interrelations is obvious: melioration measures, nuclear energetics, technogenic landscapes and etc.

Meanwhile there are some mechanisms that have been used by the humankind to influence the environment for many centuries, scarcely thinking over ecological consequences and limits.

One of the such-like impacts is the substitution of natural vegetation by cultivated plants on considerable part of the land. It is a tremendous in scale impact on biosphere and predominantly on the most important element – soil.

In the run of this impact the agrogenic and technogenic loading on the soil covering of our planet has grown quickly. During the course of the agricultural centuries-long activity of the human being the change of the soil usage modes took place; various agrolandscape restructuring was done repeatedly.

Soil plays a very important role in biosphere. The agrogenic and technogenic loading greatly affects its functions. To save and to increase soil fertility are the main humankind problems.

As a result of intensification of agriculture production the humankind has gained great success in the food problem solution. Considerable achievements in this field are typical characteristics of scientific and technical progress of the second half of the XX century. But never the less in spite of the achievements the intensive agriculture generated many problems.

As a result of high level of crop science intensification many regions of the world have become ecological disaster zones. Melioration, chemical use, mechanical equipment application and other factors of the intensive agriculture result in antropogenic environmental impact reinforcing. The scale of their influence is large enough to emerge the ecological crisis disaster on a global basis.

In this regard the problems of today’s conference are of particular significance. These conference guidelines are determined by the particular importance and vitality of the problems under consideration for Russia. Soil covering is the main treasure of our country. Its preservation is the most important national concern.

The conference is aimed to provide the integration of the International Scientific Community efforts to solve the most important problems of soil science and soil management. This is of particular vitality in connection with the FAO announcement of 2015 the year of soils. Within the period of big changes in the world it is important to consolidate the people ethics origins, which are based on the concern about soil covering of the planet.
