Consumers claim to want their food to be grown with more environmentally friendly, “natural” products but how practical are bio-derived products for agribusiness? And could this trend affect all facets of agriculture and agribusiness?
FBSciences’ Jessica Skinner will discuss the challenges bio-derived products present to manufacturers, dealers, and farmers and whether these products serve the goals of sustainable agriculture and the needs of an increasingly hungry world. She’ll lead a discussion about this trend and the possible cost to agribusiness to develop a chemical pesticide and generic market.
