Climate change influences the start and length of growing seasons and the duration and magnitude of heat and water stress in agricultural production systems. Emergence of social, economic or environmental challenges for sustainable development of food production system could signify the novelty or intensification of their consequences, the development of new management options, or the identification of issues that have gone previously unrecognized. Therefore, the present conference “Prospects and challenges of environment and biological sciences in food production system for livelihood security of farmers” provides a forum to discuss such emerging issues and advances in the areas of food production system, environment, biological and social sciences for sustainable development of agriculture. The conference will be a best combination of eminent scientists, researchers, scholars, and students who will share the latest developments in the relevant fields to promote the overall sustainability of food production system for enhancing farmers livelihood, environmental and social security.
