Over the last two years I have heard from the C-suite in agriculture, food, and investment that they seek to “Accelerate The Promise of Technology-Driven Ag and Food Production.” They requested we bring together global industry leaders––from both inside and outside of agriculture––to engage in the best-practice conversations that are a necessary exercise on road to innovation. This event is the beginning of this journey, and why I have been working as a special advisor with the team at PrecisionAg Media and Meister Media Worldwide on the inaugural PrecisionAg® Vision Conference.
So why am I excited to be in Phoenix next week?
