Discussing the Future of Hi-Tech Farming

Melissa SandfortAgribusiness, Events

The U.S. agriculture industry is facing a serious problem with being able to feed a rapidly expanding global population, as well as responding to climatic changes much like the recent drought that hit the United States. Technology is now playing an ever increasing role on the farm, allowing farmers to make the most out of every acre and to prepare against future climatic changes.

Over 200 of the most advanced farms, agribusinesses, dealers and technology businesses will be meeting in San Francisco on October 24-25 at the Future Farm Americas conference. The very latest case studies will feature key speakers include Village Farms International, Trimble, PepsiCo, Blair Farms, SLC Agricola Farms, Netafim, Olam Americas, Lindsay Irrigation, Pittman Farms and the USDA.

This event is designed to help farmers and agribusinesses learn about the latest technologies and on-farm strategies that help drive yields and keep costs down. Hearing from all parts of the Ag-value chain, including top investors, the event focuses on SMART Farming, irrigation, sustainability and hi-tech agriculture.

This year’s conference will take place alongside the 3rd annual Agriculture Investment Summit Americas, providing additional access to investors, funds and VCs.
