Event description

Description

There is a lot of buzz about how "big data" is transforming food and agriculture. But how can data and technology benefit small- and mid-sized producers who may not have resources to invest in the latest technologies? How are producers, including those growing for local and regional consumption, making use of data to support and grow their operations? How is data being used to interface with consumers and shift behavior?

The session will explore these questions and more, including how to help diverse producers and consumers take best advantage of the ag data “revolution.”

Featured speakers include:

  • Robert Blair: Owner, Three Canyon Farms (ID)
  • Dorn Cox: Research Director, Wolfe's Neck Center for Agriculture and the Environment & Farmer (ME/NH)
  • Pam Hess: Executive Director, Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture (VA)
  • Josh Woodard: President, Ag-Analytics.Org & Professor, Cornell University
