Attendees will get insights on why data is now being widely seen as the new fertilizer in food production and supply and hear about the latest advances in precision agriculture technologies.

The expert speakers will talk about the benefits that data collected in the field can deliver both on-farm and through the supply chain and whether data sharing between organizations in the food chain is desirable, or even possible.

They’ll provide insights and tangible strategies on how technology and data solutions are driving productivity, efficiency, and sustainability in food production, supply and distribution.

The industry leading panel to debate the subject includes:

  • Naveen Singla, VP, Data Science, Bayer Crop Science
  • Laura Potter, Head, Analytics & Data Sciences, Syngenta Seeds
  • Samuel Taylor, Vice President, Senior Farm Inputs Analyst, Rabobank
