Carolinas/Virginia Meeting at The Ag Biotech Summit

Written by NAMA on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 , 8:31 am

The Ag Biotech Summit, held at North Carolina State University, kicked off the Carolinas/Virginia Chapter year on October 10.  Chapter members joined a couple of hundred others interested in the future of the North Carolina ag industry.  The Summit convened national and state leaders and academia who are making a solid commitment to ensure shared thinking and coordinated activities and goals to continue biotech growth in the state.  Eighteen speakers and panelists provided eight sessions during the Summit.  One speaker put the world’s population growth into perspective when he noted that the 75 million people added to the world each year is the equivalent of Germany’s population.  Another interesting tidbit – the amount of food needed in the next four years is the same as the amount produced in the last 10,000 years.
