The current forecast is predicting the possibility of winter weather conditions. At this time the Space Ag Conference will continue as planned. We will be monitoring the conditions and will update attendees if any changes are made. We also have a virtual option available and that link will be shared with attendees closer to the event. In the event of a campus closure, we will continue the conference in a fully virtual format.
Our world food production system is undergoing a dramatic shift towards sustainable food practices and increased food security. Space agriculture, and the technology it creates, could catalyze the development of high-yield crop production that requires less and less energy, providing farmers with the ability to create more with less.
At Space Ag Conference, we’re going to discuss what it will take to accelerate innovation and move forward with the AgTech industry. And often, solving for challenges in Space can help solve challenges on earth.
Attend this half-day conference that will energizing the Ag community around advanced agriculture technologies to elevate the future of the Agtech industry and space agriculture.
