National Conference on Tropical Tuber Crops for the Sustenance and Welfare of Tribal Communities(NCTTC-2016)
Posted on 27-06-2016

In collaboration ICAR-CTCRI, Indian Society for Root Crops (ISRC) organizes National Conference on Tropical Tuber Crops for the Sustenance and Welfare of Tribal Communities at ICAR-CTCRI, Thiruvananthapuram during 20-22 October 2016. Root and tuber crops, which are the cheap and rich sources of energy, has been integrated with the food habits of the tribal population in India since time immemorial. Many tuber crops consumed by the tribal populations across the country may contain chemical substances which can cause health hazards like infant mortality, infertility etc. which may even lead to the extinction of the community as such. Making the tribes as well as the people and organizations working for them aware of these facts is the need of the hour. The objective of organizing this conference is to have a national level discussion on the potentials of tuber crops technologies in the food security, health and economic stability of the tribal communities for whom tuber crops play an important role in their livelihood. The conference will have discussions on the various ITKs available with them as well as on the protection of their habitat. About 400 delegates from various parts of the country are expected to participate in the conference. The website of the conference is available at the address http://www.isrc.in/ncttc2016. The website provides all the details of the conference and the site has provisions for registration, submission of abstract and full paper and all other communications with the organizers.
