There is no "magic bullet technology" that will feed the world. Only farmers can do that, but they need access to the complete toolbox of technology options. It has been my privilege to work on those advances with the grower community, public researchers and technology developers. I also strive to use my voice as best I can to advocate for those communities and for truly sustainable agriculture.
My next speaking event will be on a panel at the IIFH Innovators Summit organized by the Institute for Food and Agricultural Literacy at Univ. California, Davis on 4/23/18. The topic is "Fact Checking and Storytelling: What is Really Behind Science Communication"
My most recent talk was to the Banff Pork Seminar in Alberta titled: "The Future of Agriculture: Challenges, Threats, Barriers and Opportunities"
