How is agriculture data being leveraged to increase farm profitability and improve environmental outcomes, while safeguarding producer privacy?
AGree hosts a 360-degree look at the issue from the perspective of farmers, environmental advocates, agriculture data privacy experts and government agencies. Speakers will also discuss ways that USDA, private companies, and other institutions are using data to reduce production risks, save taxpayers money, and strengthen research about the effects of conservation practices on yield variability.
