The 2017 Showcase was sold out for the third year. With the backdrop of mergers and consolidation going on in the agriculture industry, our keynote speaker, Adrian Percy shared an expansive view of the state of the art, the science and the challenges from the perspective of Bayer Crop Strategies. We convened a “disruptive dialogue” to explore innovations that address soil health. For the View from the Farm we turned to next generation family farmers. Companies presented innovations targeted at problems in a variety of markets including: ingredients and new sources for healthy ingredients; decontamination and disease detection for food safety; inputs of genetics, “beneficials” and biologics; climate forecasting; and recovery and recycling of inputs to create production loops to reduce waste across production chains.
Event Date Range: Sept. 11-13, 2017
