Proceedings of the International Conference on Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources (FANRes 2018)

Agricultural products are often get special treatment in order to compete in the global market. They also must be able to meet several quality standards, ranging from production to consumption process. The implementation of food product quality standards becomes a challenge for developing countries that in fact have abundant natural resources. Increasing the competitiveness of agricultural products can be done through the use of production technology, input efficiency, and optimization of farmer institutions. In addition, agriculture products should be produced creatively and innovatively. From this point of view, it is important to develop agro-technopreneurship. In order to strengthen agro-technopreneurship, a dissemination forum on studies and agricultural research results is needed. This is the background of the 4th FANRes International Conference with the theme "Elevating Agro-technopreneurship Toward Product Competitiveness" which will be held at Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta, Indonesia on 12-14 September, and involves experts, researchers, academics, and practitioners from various countries.
