Call For Papers

The rise of agribusiness in academia was induced mainly by the increase of value-added activities that take place beyond the farm-gate, resulting in the expansion of processing and agricultural input sectors. With this expansion came the need to look at the interdependence of the various sectors within the chain. Furthermore, the advent of globalization has facilitated international trade, which made possible the transnational movement of goods and, as a result, the building of transnational relationships. As producers and enterprises face numerous opportunities and challenges in light of these increased interrelationships, there is a need to investigate the complex processes within agribusiness chains from management and economic perspectives.

The University of the Philippines Mindanao, a research and public service university, aims to contribute to the ongoing academic conversation on this topic by organizing the Fifth International Conference on Agribusiness Economics and Management (ICAEM5), with special focus on often marginalized sectors operating in emerging economies—from smallholder farmers in production to small- and medium-scale enterprises (SMEs) in processing and distribution, as well as all other involved sectors in between.

Proposed sub-themes for the conference are as follows:

* Crop production and postharvest technologies
* Environmental resource management
* Farm management
* Agricultural and marketing extension services
* Supply chain management
* Value chain analysis
* Micro- and macroeconomics
* Domestic and international agricultural trade
* Agricultural marketing and policy
* Consumer studies
* Product development and innovation
* Household behavior and family economics
* Women in agribusiness

You may also propose other sub-themes in line with the main theme.
