2021 Trust In Food Symposium To Address Carbon, Animal Ag, Resilient Working Lands
2020 was a year unlike any in recent memory, with individuals and communities forging new ways to do business, communicate and go about their daily lives. Against this backdrop, the U.S. food system appears to be rapidly evolving, as well.
How are U.S. farmers and ranchers responding, and what’s ahead for agriculture? Can a new system emerge that helps farmers move towards more regenerative practices and add revenue streams from carbon markets and other ecosystem services?
Get the answers to these and other questions during the 2021 Trust In Food Symposium Regenerative Reset, Feb. 23-25.
The event agenda is packed with content that will help leaders from farms, agribusinesses, conservation organizations, farmer associations, food companies, food retail, government agencies and other sectors make sense of the changing landscape and position themselves for success.
As an added bonus, Trust In Food is hosting a Carbon Market Seminar for farmers who register to attend Top Producer Summit. This special event is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. CST, Wednesday, Feb. 10, and will include farmers and leaders from carbon market organizations.
