Bringing together IFAJ partners Syngenta and Rabobank, plus Bayer CropScience, the discussion will focus on where technology and data are driving real benefits and efficiencies.

Attendees will get insights on why data is now being widely seen as the new fertilizer in food production and supply and hear about the latest advances in precision agriculture technologies. 

The expert speakers will talk about the benefits that data collected in the field can deliver both on-farm and through the supply chain and whether data sharing between organizations in the food chain is desirable, or even possible.

They’ll provide insights and tangible strategies on how technology and data solutions are driving productivity, efficiency and sustainability in food production, supply and distribution.

The industry leading panel to debate the subject includes: 

-Naveen Singla, VP, Data Science, Bayer Crop Science
-Laura Potter, Head, Analytics & Data Sciences, Syngenta Seeds
-Samuel Taylor, Vice President, Senior Farm Inputs Analyst, Rabobank
-Aaron Magenheim, CEO & Founder, AgTech Insight (Moderator)

With the sharing of information and solutions being more important than ever during these unprecedented times, Reuters Events have made the webinar free to attend. 

Pete Carkeek, Head of Food & Agriculture at Reuters Events, states “We’re excited to launch this new webinar and bring together some of the industry’s leading experts to share their views on the increasing impact that technology and data are already having on agriculture and food – and what they think the future holds.”
