Organic Agriculture Seminar in Valencia (SAE-hp), is an informal organization that brings together various entities involved in the promotion and dissemination of agriculture and organic food. Since 1997, Congress has held in different places (Burjassot, Orihuela, Castellon, Gandia), coordinated by different entities (SCV Over Noguera, CERAI, La Union and SEAE-COAG).
This year, the entity that coordinates this structure is the Committee of Organic Agriculture of Valencia (CAE-CV), which is supported by the Spanish Society of Organic Agriculture (SEAE) and the Miguel Hernández University (UMH), Elche, is either to make a call and invite them to participate and make contributions to V Organic Agriculture Seminar, to be held this fall.
V Congress intended to reflect and learn about the progress and prospects in the field of Organic Farming in our community, within an institutional framework conducive to the development state of this method of production, increasingly defendant by consumers. Moreover, the realization of this event coincides with the Master Agroecology Officer, Rural Development and Farm of the UMH, which will support the extension of the sustainable development of agriculture sector.
This year has been a topic related to the rescue shaft and use of traditional orchards that exist in the valleys of many rivers that were once a true food pantry, in a context of increasing conversion of arable land in lowland areas.
In this regard, we intend to further emphasize the positive impact to the environment in general and agriculture in particular that involves the introduction of a more sustainable management model.
We believe that the quality of Mediterranean agriculture is enhanced by the practice of farming and is connected, as at present and in the near future even more to plant production and organic livestock, which contribute to the sustainability of agricultural systems.
