What the Experts Are Saying
The conference will help catalyze global partnerships and collaborations, stimulate opportunities for training and capacity building in science and technology, and focus attention on the development and implementation of data-driven strategies to enhance environmental sustainability and global food security.
Susan McCouch, Professor of Plant Breeding and Genetics, Cornell University and member of the AGBT Scientific Organizing Committee
We bring together the world’s leading scientists and leaders to connect and join their thinking for bolder and transformative efforts in dealing with the two greatest challenges of our generation: How to feed our world equitably and sustainably? And how to keep our planet safe with available resources for future generations.
Appolinaire Djikeng, Director and Chair of Tropical Agriculture and Sustainable Development of the Centre for Tropical Livestock Genetics and Health (CTLGH), and member of the AGBT Scientific Organizing Committee.
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
