Carbon

The industry is poised to be a driver in the carbon sequestration and credit market through sustainable farming practices, carbon sequestration modeling and tracking, and harnessing the ability to address environmental concerns. Their leadership will determine the rate and extent of success of carbon sequestration efforts. Attend these sessions to hear from world-class experts in the field.

Traceability

Advancements in traceability are unlocking our potential to evaluate and understand the supply chain, the first essential step in mitigating the risks of crop disease, contamination, and spoilage. The use and benefits of these technologies will allow exporters and producers to confront risks head-on to prevent consumer exposure, maximize supply chain capacity, and address consumer interests. During the conference, we’ll explore these technologies and their benefits on local, regional, and global scales.
