Economic Development Insights for Ag Tech in North Carolina
Join friends and colleagues from our region and share what’s happening in North Carolina’s ag tech industry. The Ag Tech Professional Forum is a series held throughout the year providing the opportunity to learn about N.C.’s diverse agricultural resources, while also offering a setting for networking and engagement outside of our normal workspaces. See the agenda below for the upcoming Forum topic and details.
