Ag Tech Professional Forum

The Ag Tech Professional Forum is a series held throughout the year to provide our industry the opportunity to hear from key leaders from around the world as they discuss the topics relevant to today's world.  Under usual circumstances, meaning pre-COVID-19, this series was also an engaging setting for networking outside of our normal workspaces. These days, while it may be a little less socially engaging, the distances are being eliminated, allowing many new faces and voices to join and share. We hope to reconnect in person by Spring 2021.

Agenda

Plant Health: No Need to be Salty

November's panel will discuss an increasing challenge for the Mid-Atlantic coast from saltwater intrusion.  The leading cause of this stems from rising sea levels, land subsidence, and more prevalent storm surge. Join us to hear from key thought leaders about possible strategies landowners can utilize to be more resilient to the effects of climate change. (Watch Panel)
