ISPA Economics Community
The ISPA Economics Community held a meeting during the 15th ICPA in Minneapolis. The outcomes from the meeting included a resolution to maintain Economics Community inter-conference activities, increase participation, and extend its influence globally to reach all ISPA members. We very much look forward to the 2024 ICPA and encourage ISPA members to consider attending the conference and becoming part of the ISPA Economics Community. We would also like to thank Jiali Shang (outgoing Economics Community Leader) for her wonderful support and commitment to the ISPA Economics Community from 2018-2022.
Call for Nominations – Deputy Economics Community Leader
The ISPA Economics Community is now calling for nominations to take up the position of Deputy Economics Community Leader. The role would begin immediately with the successful nominee becoming the Economics Community Leader from the 2024 ICPA for a period of 2 years.
If you would like to nominate yourself or a colleague, please email Karl Behrendt, ISPA Economics Community Leader (kbehrendt@harper-adams.ac.uk) a short bio for consideration by the broader economics community. Nominations should be sent by 23rd April 2023.
ISPA Economics Community Event
During the 18th & 19th September 2023 the ISPA Economics Community will be hosting a special session at the 6th Symposium on Agri-Tech Economics for Sustainable Futures organised by Harper Adams University, UK. The session will be focused on the Economics and Adoption of Precision Agriculture. This is part of an in-person symposium at Harper Adams University in the UK, with discounted on-campus accommodation available and a very sociable conference dinner. You are invited to showcase your work and discuss it among world leading peers and fellow Economics Community members. For the last two years the Economics Community has hosted this special session during the symposium with notable keynotes presented by Prof David Zilberman and Dr David Bullock. The call for papers is currently open and closes on the 10th July 2023 and we encourage ISPA members to consider submitting their work. For more information go to: https://www.agritechecon.co.uk/
Call For Papers - Scientia Horticulturae

Sensing advances for tree and fruit physiological traits definition in horticulture

The Scientia Horticulturae would like to hear from you.  They are looking for paper submissions for their upcoming publication. 

The demand for high yield and fruit quality increases along with world population growth, demand for healthy fresh fruit, increased labor cost, and competitive land use. Implementation of precision horticulture relies heavily on sensors and systems, playing an increasingly important role in today’s horticultural production systems, regardless of operation size, commodity, or management approach.

This issue provides current aspects and future perspectives on advances in sensing technology, and various types of sensors that have developed commercially and are becoming available in precision horticulture. It aims to provide comprehensive coverage of the current trends in optical sensors, and potential techniques for efficient, rapid, and non-invasive detection of yield, stress, fruit size, and quality. Special attention is given to new directions of sensor based extracted plant information and its relation with tree and fruit physiology.

Please click here for more information and to learn how to submit a paper.
