Empowering farmer's with technology enables them to be both more profitable and sustainable. There is a huge disconnect between society and agriculture with many people thinking farmers and ranchers aren't innovative. However all of our panelists and their customers are proof that when small farmers are empowered with the right resources they will use them to drive powerful change. Examining current novel approaches to produce food while using less land and water, this panel will explore what is working and what technology is needed to enhance approaches to improve food systems and nutrition security, while feeding more people using less natural resources.
