NAMA Webinar: 2019 Research Shows Growing Concerns for Farmers

Written by NAMA on Monday, August 19, 2019 , 12:27 pm

The Farmer Speaks study is designed to monitor the changing attitudes of farmers. It showed in 2019 important trends that would impact the market. The study has predicted further “belt tightening” among growers and adoption of technologies viewed by farmers as necessary for production. Farmers indicated they were seeking any and all sources of financing for 2019 and steady demand for the latest traited seed varieties.

We will discuss the results of the survey, how the trends are tracking, and developments like Midwestern flooding, delayed planting, and the trade war that are impacting growers since the study was fielded.

Please join us as Jan Johnson, Millennium Research, and Jeff Whetstine, March Consulting, explain the importance of tracking trends and how the Farmer Speaks study can provide an early indication of shifting attitudes and behaviors over time.

NAMA Webinar: A New Meaning for “AI” in Agriculture

Written by NAMA on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 , 12:14 pm

Agriculture and technology have always gone hand in hand.  The next era of technology and agriculture is moving into places like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and it’s going to touch all industry sectors – from production to processing, all the way to consumption. This case study takes a snapshot of the world of AI – from both the critic and supporter perspective – and how its applications continue to transform the agriculture industry.
 
Join Mike Garrison and Joel Erb, from Padilla, as they delve into this subject. Key points they’ll address: 

  • AI is abstract and viewed by many as “evil.” But when utilized and managed correctly, AI provides insights that agriculture needs to produce more, and create trust between a farmer and a consumer.
  • Companies must understand the value of trust before investing heavily into AI to manage consumer data.
  • It’s not whether but when to apply AI, and how to apply it.
