Ten years ago, the Ag Innovation Showcase began its remarkable journey to curate innovations, converse about trends, and cultivate a community.
Since then, the globally recognized event has established a loyal following and showcased 186 innovators. The panels, presentations, spotlights and networking discussions have charted the arc of innovation in agriculture and food: exploring biofuels, biomaterials, microbials, animal health, alternative proteins, new sources of food and the future of agriculture.
This year, the Danforth Center and Larta Institute are pleased to feature industry players and companies focused on precise plant nutrition solutions. Dr. Mehmood Khan, MD, vice chairman and chief scientific officer of Global Research and Development at PepsiCo, will kick off the event as the keynote speaker. Dr. Khan oversees Pepsi's global Performance with Purpose Initiatives that are inspired by the fundamental belief that business success is inextricably linked to the sustainability of the world we share.
