June 26-28, Salinas Valley

US (CA): Forbes AgTech Summit spotlights modern agriculture

Forbes announced the speaker lineup for the 2018 Forbes AgTech Summit. The Summit will again bring together over 600 global agriculture leaders and entrepreneurs to tackle some of the world’s most critical challenges by focusing on solutions that growers and processors can put to work in their fields and plants.

Held once again under the big tents on historic Main Street Salinas — where the Silicon and Salinas Valleys meet — the Summit will foster lively debate and generate networking opportunities. This event will thoroughly explore the most important issues in AgTech including AI, big data, blockchain, crop protection, labor, microbiome, robotics, sustainability, vertical farming, water and a host of other topics. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to visit fields and processing plants where they’ll experience first-hand the technology innovations that are revolutionizing the global agricultural ecosystem.

The Forbes AgTech Summit will kick off the evening of June 26 with the invitation-only Western Growers Innovation Showcase Opening Dinner. The next morning, Wed. June 27, Summit participants who have pre-registered can enjoy exclusive tours of Taylor Farms, Monterey Materials Reclamation Facility, Mantis Ag Technology, Scheid Vineyards or Driscoll’s. The tours will conclude with an afternoon of field demos at Hartnell College’s Alisal Campus. The Innovation Showcase and the Plenary Sessions will follow under the summit’s signature white tents on Main Street Salinas, where The Honorable Stephen Censky, United States Deputy Secretary of Agriculture, will participate in the opening conversation with Steve Forbes.
