Next week, the 2016 Sustainable Agriculture Summit will convene leaders from across the agricultural value chain to create the premier sustainability event for production agriculture.
Field to Market, the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy, the National Pork Board, the Stewardship Index for Specialty Crops, the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, and the U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Beef are joining together to host the event. The Summit brings together diverse stakeholders from across the food and agricultural supply chain to discuss opportunities to advance continuous improvement in agricultural sustainability.
The vision of the Sustainable Agriculture Summit is to strengthen the supply chain network of producers, agribusinesses, retailers, and influencers who drive continuous improvement in agricultural sustainability and deliver food, fiber, and fuel to a growing world. The event will provide opportunities for members of the agricultural supply chain to engage with leading experts and learn more about key sustainability challenges and opportunities.
The Sustainable Agriculture Summit will be held at the Omni Atlanta Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia on November 15-16, 2016. I hope to see you there!
Tom, wish it was closer.
I can’t attend. I hope you can define “Sustainable” in a way you and I favor. It appears that EVERY agricultural system is defining itself as sustainable. If a farm is losing topsoil and organic matter it is not sustainable.
Soil Health using all the organic ingredients here on earth in a combination to provide correct soil texture and balance =Healthy Soil=Healthy Plants=Healthy Planet
