We are delighted to welcome you to the 3rd International Conference on Smart and Innovative Agriculture (ICoSIA), during November 22–23, 2022, in Grand Rohan Jogja, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. We also welcome the participants and speakers who joined us via Zoom Meeting Platform since this conference is held hybrid.

ICoSIA aimed to provide a platform for researchers to share their findings, innovation, and great ideas in the smart and innovative agriculture field. Smart and innovative agriculture is intended to fulfill the needs for agricultural development and overcome emerging agricultural problems in the field and the laboratory. Digital transformation and technology in agriculture have become the main issue to be raised nowadays. Digital transformation can revolutionize agriculture by helping farmers work more precisely, efficiently, and sustainably. Digital transformation also has the potential to offer consumers greater transparency as to how their food is produced. It gives opportunities to renew business models in value chains by connecting producers and consumers in innovative ways. Furthermore, technology is crucially required to follow the needs in this digitalization era or even accelerate agriculture’s digital transformation.

The agricultural system continues to be developed by various groups to this day. Many subjects determine this development related to agriculture. The root of agriculture subjects that emphasize agronomy, land management, and genetics is still valuable to be discussed and to follow its development of knowledge through the current research. However, the challenges of developing agriculture are many. Therefore, big agricultural data, precision farming, smart farming, nutrition technology, and sustainable food production emphasizing techniques are strongly needed to adapt to digital transformation in agriculture.

It is our pleasure that we received 102 submissions in total from eight countries such as Indonesia, Australia, Trinidad and Tobago, Japan, Malaysia, USA, Kazakhstan, and Thailand. Based on the results of a stringent and austere review process, 64 papers have been selected.We are exceedingly appreciative to have our keynote and invited speakers, Prof.Wouter Saeys fromKULeuven, Belgium; Prof. JosaphatTetuko Sri Sumantyo from Chiba University, Japan; Prof. Djagal Wiseso Marseno from Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia; Prof. Endang Sutriswati Rahayu from Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia; Prof. Muh Aris Marfai from Badan Informasi Geospasial, Indonesia; Prof. Bambang Sugiharto from Universitas Jember, Indonesia; Prof. Budiman Minasny from Sydney University, Australia; Taira Miyahara, Ph.D. from Chiba University, Japan; Husnain, Ph.D. from the Ministry of Agriculture, Indonesia; and Vincentius Surya Kurnia Adi, Ph.D. from Chung Hsing University, Taiwan, for their expertise and knowledge.
