Latest Developments in Ag Tech

About This Webinar

The challenges farmers face are expanding. Global unrest, unpredictable markets, rising inflation, expensive transportation and extreme weather are all impacting how food is grown, but how are farmers reacting? For many, the answer is an increased focus on emerging agricultural technologies, such as controlled-environment agriculture.

As agriculture moves towards automation, what technologies and best practices will lead the way? Watch this FI-exclusive webinar as we discuss the agricultural technologies emerging at the farm gate. Agritecture founder and CEO Henry Gordon-Smith and Tortuga AgTech co-founder and CEO Eric Adamson outline the current state of agricultural technology before diving into a boots-on-the-ground view of how the technology is applied at the farm level.
