The Future Of Farmer-Focused Ag Technologies (Webinar)

Date: January 29, 2021

Time: 12 pm – 1 pm, CT


Join us on January 29th for the next AURI Connects: Fields of Innovation webinar. This month’s webinar focuses on the development of innovative, farmer-focused ag technologies. We will look at work being done in the Red River Valley of Minnesota and North Dakota to develop new technologies that will help producers address challenges, exploit new opportunities, and bring new and emerging crops to market.

As agricultural producers become more dependent on technology solutions, the need for farmer-focused solutions continues to grow. Grand Farm, powered by Emerging Prairie, is a research and education initiative aimed at developing collaborations between farmers, researchers, businesses and other key stakeholders to champion the development and deployment of new, innovative technologies for the farm of the future. This month’s webinar will feature leaders from this initiative, who will join us to discuss their efforts to ensure that farmers have a central voice in the development process of new ag technologies.

The conversation is ongoing at the Fields of Innovation Facebook Group.

AURI Connects: Fields of Innovation is a platform focused on bringing together Minnesota’s regional ag and food value chains to build capacity and successfully commercialize new and emerging crops. Events focus on highlighting promising new crops, examining market opportunities for emerging crops, and highlighting new technologies in existing crops.
