For the first time, an international conference on Sustainable use of Grassland Resources for Forage Production, Biodiversity and Environmental Protection, will be held in the capital, from 20-24th November, 2015.
The Congress will be jointly hosted by the Range Management Society of India (RMSI) and the Indian Grassland and Fodder Research Institute (IGFRI) Jhansi in association with the International Grassland Congress (IGC).

The Congress will provide a rare opportunity for the National Agricultural Research System to showcase its grassland environments, R&D and technologies to an international audience. The Grassland Congresses provide a forum for scientists, agricultural engineers and researchers in the fields of grassland improvement, plant physiology, plant ecology, environmental science, grazing management etc., to come together to exchange ideas and information.
The main theme of the Congress is “Sustainable use of grassland resources for forage production, biodiversity and environmental protection” with five sub themes viz.
1. Grassland Resources
2. Grassland Production and Utilization
3. Sustainability of Grassland – Social and Policy Issues
