This book comprises select proceedings of the International Conference on Emerging Technologies for Farming - Energy & Environment - Water (ITsFEW 2018). The contents are divided into three parts viz., (i) Developments in Farming, (ii) Energy and Environment, and (iii) Water Conservation and Management. The book aims to provide timely solutions, using innovative and emerging technologies, to the global challenges in agriculture, energy, environment, and water management. Some of the topics covered in this book include remote sensing for smart farming, GIS, irrigation engineering, soil science and agronomy, smart grids, renewable energy, energy management systems, energy storage technologies, biological water treatment, industrial waste water treatment, watershed management and sustainability. Given the wide range of topics discussed, the book will be very useful for students, researchers and practitioners interested in agricultural and environmental engineering.


Dr. Babu Subramanian is currently Professor and Director of VIT Centre for Agricultural Innovations and Advanced Learning (VAIAL). He graduated from Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Tamil Nadu, India with vast post-doctoral research experience from University of Angers, France, University of Alberta, Canada, Pennsylvania State University, USA, North Eastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine, USA, Florida Atlantic University, USA. His research areas include molecular plant-microbe interactions and functional genomics and he is currently working on proteome level investigations on cross-talking genes in rice during abiotic and biotic stress, role of transcription factors and their downsteam genes in plant disease resistance, metabolic engineering of tomato for over-expression of stigmasterol biosynthesis, molecular interactions of human enteric bacteria in fruits and vegetables, compatibility of bicontrol and biofertilizer bacteria in crop growth and health and bacterial biofilms: metagenomics and bioinformatics. He has published around 75 papers in notable journals and more than 100 papers in reputed conferences.
Dr. Shiao-Shing Chen is currently working as Distinguished Professor at the Institute of Environmental Engineering and Management, National Taipei University of Technology. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Central Florida, Master from the University of Maryland, College Park, and Bachelor from National Cheng Kung University. He also had his sabbatical researches in University of Washington, Seattle and University of Technology, Sydney. He has over 20 years of research, teaching and consulting experience. His areas of interest include physicochemical process on water and wastewater treatment by incorporation of membrane. Currently, his projects have primarily dealt with membrane, oxidation-reduction, and catalysis processes for application in the High-Tech industries in Taiwan and several full scale plants have been built based on his researches. He has published more than 100 papers in reputed journals and more than 100 papers in conference proceedings. He has also authored four book chapters including Sustainable Desalination Process in Environmental Chemistry for a Sustainable World and Nanoscale Materials in Water Purification. He was a guest editor for Journal of Environmental Engineering, ASCE and was on the editorial board of several renounced journals. He has received several awards for excellence in research including Taipei Tech Distinguished Researcher Award two times and Research Award from Chinese institute of environmental engineering (CIEE).

Dr. Krishna R. Reddy is Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the Director of Sustainable Engineering Research Laboratory (SERL), and also the Director of the Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering Laboratory (GAGEL) in the Department of Civil and Materials Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Dr. Reddy has over 25 years of research, teaching and consulting experience within the broad fields of civil, geotechnical, materials and environmental engineering, addressing the nexus among sustainability, resiliency, infrastructure, water, energy, and the environment in an urban setting. His research expertise includes: environmental remediation of soils, sediments, groundwater, and stormwater; solid and hazardous waste management and landfill engineering; engineering applications of waste/recycled materials; life cycle assessment and sustainable engineering; and geotechnical engineering. His research is funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, several prominent state and local government agencies, and industries. Dr. Reddy is the author of three books: (1) Geoenvironmental Engineering: Site Remediation, Waste Containment, and Emerging Waste Management Technologies, (2) Electrochemical Remediation Technologies for Polluted Soils, Sediments and Groundwater, and (3) Sustainable Remediation of Contaminated Sites. He has also published 193 journal papers, 14 edited books and conference proceedings, 12 book chapters, and 175 full conference papers. He has served or currently serves as an Associate Editor or Editorial Board Member of over 10 different journals, including the ASCE Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering, the ASTM Geotechnical Testing Journal, the ASCE Journal of Hazardous, Toxic and Radioactive Waste, the Journal of Hazardous Materials, among others. Dr. Reddy has received several awards for excellence in research and teaching, including the ASTM Hogentogler Award, the UIC Distinguished Researcher Award, the University of Illinois Scholar Award, and the University of Illinois Award for Excellence in Teaching. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers (FASCE), a Diplomat of Geotechnical Engineering (DGE), and a Board Certified Environmental Engineer (BCEE). He is also a registered Professional Civil Engineer (PE) and an EnvisionTM Sustainability Professional (ENV SP).
