Globally Positioned Agriculture

Thursday, Dec. 11, 2014

Washington, D.C.


In the nation’s capital, thought leaders spend a great deal of time diagnosing problems and debating their causes in different policy silos. Across the globe, the public sector, private sector and individuals are developing solutions to these problems and at Farm Journal Foundation we believe every individual can have a role to play given the proper platform.

The 2014 Farm Journal Forum is dedicated to highlighting solutions that will help position our industry globally to confront major challenges and leverage opportunities arising from changes in our food and agriculture system.
