The discussion included Sustainable Agriculture, Agribusiness, and Rural Development in the Era of Industrial Revolution 4.0.

The era of the Industrial Revolution 4.0 has entered a new chapter with the Covid-19 pandemic conditions. In this era, technology has become an inseparable part of all sectors of life, one of which is the agricultural sector. Agriculture is the mainstay of the sector during the pandemic conditions. The city center is an area that requires food supply from rural areas. As a result, rural areas need to be empowered and developed so that they are more familiar with the technology so that agricultural management can pay attention to the ecology of the surrounding environment. Besides, awareness of doing business based on farming from upstream to downstream needs to be improved in the current era so that it can improve the welfare of life and open jobs for others.

Notable Keynote and Invited Speakers have shared their speeches, there are 85 papers submitted in this conference, and 43 papers published in Atlantis Press.
