Network N Chill | Future of Ag: Urban Ag Panel
June 23, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pmFree
By 2050, scientists predict we will need 2 earths to feed the world’s estimated population of 9.1 billion people with our current growing methods. Farms must produce more food and fiber to feed a growing population, more feedstocks for a growing bioenergy market, and adopt more sustainable production practices to combat climate change. As farming relies more on complex equipment with lots of electronics, data collection and technology will play an increasingly larger role in food production. In 2020, Governor Beshear announced an international agreement with 16 organizations to make Kentucky the agritech capital of America. Network N Chill is launching a three-part agritech series featuring agritech startups, agribusiness founders and urban agriculturalists to highlight emerging leaders and trends in agritech.
