Use of ionizing radiation in the area of agriculture, food technology and environment has led to several important benefits such as,
i) New varietal development in many crops
ii) Better nutrient and water management
iii) Food preservation
iv) Managing environmental contamination and so on.

In line with global trend, in India also, significant developmental work is being done in all these areas and their benefits have already reached many sectors. However, to be fully benefited by these developments pioneering works that is being done in all laboratories need to be shared among the scientific community.

In this regard, organizing a national symposium on “Applications of Radioisotopes and Tracer Techniques in Agriculture and Environment”. This symposium will help in discussion amongst the experts, displaying the current developments in the field and disseminate the same to the wider public.

A national symposium is planned focusing on the following broad themes,
1. Industrial By products, Pollutants and Environmental Safety.
2. Isotopes in Hydrology for Water Resource Management.
3. Radioisotopes in Plant Physiology and Plant Imaging.
4. Food Preservation by Irradiation Technology.
5. Radioisotopes and Radiation Technology in Plant Protection.
6. Nutrient Cycling in Soil-Plant-Atmosphere Continuum.
7. Nuclear Applications for Crop Improvement.
8. Radioisotopes for Plant Metabolic Pathways.
