Details:

Will agriculture be able to meet the challenge of feeding 9.6B people by 2050?

Join us as we look at the changing face of farming, how technologies are revolutionizing agriculture and how society, being ever more disconnected from food production, will influence the tools, such as genetic engineering, farmers use as they work to ensure global food security.

Our speakers, Robert Saik, and Dr. David Zaruk, will show how technology is impacting agriculture and how society’s perception of food production is creating real challenges on the farm.
