AgEmerge: Moving Beyond the Ag Paradigm
The convergence of ag technology and soil health principles and practices is causing a paradigm shift. AgEmerge will help you make sense of it all.
AgEmerge is a unique opportunity to learn from and interact with emerging thought leaders and entrepreneurs who are solving some of the most significant challenges in agriculture.
AgEmerge begins with a paradigm-shifting keynote speaker, Rod Osthus. A farm kid, seed technologist, and now business mentor who has an incredible perspective that challenges conventional views on production agriculture. Rod will dare you to go outside your comfort zone and take the needed steps to improve your livelihood and build a legacy.
Next, we’ll hear from our AgEmerge headline speaker, Gabe Brown. Gabe is a successful farmer who went from nearly broke to the leader of the regenerative agriculture movement. He grows and markets his crops and livestock while dramatically improving his soils and his bottom line. Rather than someone who just talks about doing it...Gabe has actually done it!
Then, during the AgEmerge talks, you will learn from emerging thought leaders on topics critical to the future of agriculture. The speakers are specially-selected, paradigm-breaking thought leaders covering the emerging subjects of:
- Regenerative Agriculture
- Automation and Robotics
- Data Analytics and Sensing
- Advanced Irrigation Technologies
- Consumer Trends and Demands
Each AgEmerge talk will be limited to 20 minutes on the first day followed by concurrent, in-depth sessions to choose from on the second day. You will experience a great overview of emerging principles, technologies, and trends and then be able to focus in on the topics that matter the most to you!
If that’s not unique enough, the AgEmerge pitch competition will feature promising entrepreneurs who are passionate about their solutions to improve agriculture. Along with a panel of angel investors, you will help judge their business ideas and vote for who takes home the cash awards that will help them get their product to market and see their dreams come true. Who knows, you may be able to say you saw a revolutionary new product before it was even on the market!
You will leave energized, informed, and connected with the latest trends, leaders, and entrepreneurs that are shaping the future of agriculture. AgEmerge is the event you’ll be talking about long after it’s over!
