Grow your future: Innovation, trends and best practices in sustainable management
Join us June 22–26, 2014 at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh!
Join us and other future agricultural workers for a four-day residential immersion training. Travel regionally to see first hand how sustainable initiatives are applied at farms and businesses that bolster the agriculture sector.
Every workshop and tour presented in this project demonstrates how innovation, new trends and best practices in agriculture are applied at local farms. From producing milk, meat and crops, to life on the farm and farm machinery, innovation continuously fosters new technology.
Stereotypes about traditional farming have become passé. Current trends and future options for agriculture span the farming, science and business sectors. These trends change the way we think about and approach farming and agriculture.
Sustainable practice demonstrates change in attitudes about energy production and consumption in agriculture. Innovators exist in every facet of the agriculture industry; through research and detailed planning, farmers will see higher yields and profitability.
