The advancements in vegetable production technologies play an important role towards sustaining and securing our vegetable sources. With the theme ‘Advancing Vegetable Technology for Higher Productivity and Better Human Health’, this upcoming 2019 Southeast Asia Vegetable Symposium (SEAVEG 2019) will highlight new promising technologies and approaches to produce high quality vegetables. Advance vegetable technologies such as sensor devices, machinery, precision agriculture and smart farming are currently being adopted to enhance vegetable production. These technologies strengthened the efforts taken by the breeders and horticulture scientists to improve crop yield and quality. Modern agricultural biotechnology which involves an application of cellular and molecular techniques helps to identify macro and micronutrient availability in vegetables. These nutrients are essential for human health and contribute to a better quality of life. The symposium will consist of plenary, keynote and parallel oral presentations. Much attention will also be given to the poster sessions, where the organisers are anticipating active involvement of both poster presenters and other participants. Specific topics will be addressed via a panel discussion which encourages active audience participation to further understand the current scenario and future priorities of the vegetable industry.
