What the Experts Are Saying

One of humanity’s greatest challenges is to sustainably produce more food on existing agricultural lands. AGBT Ag…fosters the needed dialogue and exchange of ideas to bring about the fourth agricultural revolution.

Sarah Hearne, chair of the AGBT Ag conference and Principal Scientist and maize geneticist at the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT)

Our work is aimed at developing sustainable agriculture around feeding the population. That’s why having a conference like AGBT Ag, bringing experts across various fields, is really exciting.

Charlie Johnson, 2022 Organizing Committee Member and Executive Director Genomics & Bioinformatics, Texas A&M AgriLife

AGBT Ag is a big opportunity for communities to start talking across the disciplines a little bit more so that we can identify opportunities and spaces where we can scale existing technologies.

Sarah Hearne, Chair of the AGBT Ag conference and Principal Scientist and maize geneticist at the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT)

AGBT Ag is looking at bringing the best members of the scientific community, the best science; it’s bringing industry—and ensuring that we have real partnerships to make sure we have end-to-end interventions.

Appolinaire Djikeng, Professor and Chair for Tropical Agriculture and Sustainable Development and Director of Tropical Livestock Genetics and Health at the University of Edinburgh

As a lecturer, scientist, and breeder, [AGBT Ag] could not have been better…I have enough to update my lectures and research approaches to benefit my students and supervisees.
