Innovation was the topic of discussion at this year’s Agri-Pulse “Farm to Fork Politics: Unleashing Innovation in Agriculture” in Washington, DC. The panel consists of Bill Horan, Farmer and Chairman, Truth About Trade & Technology; Paul Sauder, CEO, Sauder’s Eggs; David Fischhoff, Chief Scientist, Climate Corporation; Ronnie Green, Vice President, Agriculture and Natural Resources, University of Nebraska. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) also joined the panel – a little late due to lots of activity in the House.
You might guess that innovation can apply to many aspects of agriculture. One that perked my ears up was the growing use of and availability of data which is being driven by new technology to capture, transfer and interpret that information.
This annual event brings together the top leaders in agriculture in Washington, DC as well as elected officials to learn and network. Tomorrow kicks off the official National Ag Day Activities and you’ll be able to follow all of it right here on AgWired.
