AgTech NEXT 2022: Companies Seek Opportunities For The Future
During the AgTech NEXT 2022, Reinventing a Food System in Crisis, conference Oct. 11-13 at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis, MO, companies said they are finding that opportunities exist despite the challenges faced globally.
Bayer, for example, has chartered it own ship to deliver products to farmers around the world, says Shannon Hauf, Bayer Crop Science senior vice president and head of seed production innovation.
“If we don’t get our products to farmers in time, they miss the season,” Hauf says. “Farmers around the world are dependent on our products.”
The ability exists to use data to solve problems in the future to avert supply chain crisis, she says.
