Rethinking Yield, Nutrition & Crop Protection: Genomics, Cloud Biology & Next Generation Technologies

World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit 2018

20 Mar 2018

San Francisco, CA

Topics include:

  • How is big data and computational analysis being applied to develop new seed traits and genomic discoveries and offering new ways to measure, map and drive information into better products at a faster rate?

  • How are companies using next generation tools to targeting specific traits to increase yield, nutrition, health, taste, texture and resistance? How are technology developers capitalizing on the growing trend for targeting consumer-facing benefits rather than agronomic farmer-facing benefits? From golden rice, bananas, non-browning apples and mushrooms how are these products making it to the market? What early successes are we seeing? What can be done to move products through the regulatory system at the right speed. How can these solutions be scaled within the existing supply chains?

  • Genetic and biological diversity in plants offers a great opportunity for more resistance and overcoming resistance. What opportunities are there to mobilise this process and what barriers need to be overcome?
