However, in the recent terrestrial biology literature, they have been used mainly for the zones between the tropics ( O C) and. Continual population growth has caused an increase in the demand for sufficient and healthy food.

AgriTropics therefore follows an interdisciplinary approach to increase agricultural production in the tropics and subtropics in a sustainable way without losing sight of the scarcity of existing resources.

Rice is the main staple food crop in the world and the crop is closely associated with the culture of billions of people around the world, particularly in Asia and Africa.
