 Help Shape Future Innovation in U.S. Agriculture

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

             10 a.m. PT / 11 a.m. MT / 12 p.m. CT / 1 p.m. ET

[]Please join us for a virtual listening session to help shape agricultural research priorities for the next three decades. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the biggest challenges and opportunities for optimizing agricultural productivity and resilience, strengthening economic viability, and decreasing the environmental impact of our nation’s farms and ranches.

This listening session is co-hosted by the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) and the Organic Seed Alliance in partnership with the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition.

Your input will be shared with the USDA to directly influence the department’s Agricultural Innovation Agenda, including objectives for public- and private-sector research and development. We will also help participants submit their own comments directly to USDA.

Farmers, ranchers, researchers, conservationists, and others interested in shaping the direction of USDA-funded research are encouraged to attend.

Registration is required. Visit<*3d__%3BJQ!!HXCxUKc!nO9E5S5xTLEe6BgIRt-Ysb4jj1MlZAaj06Yrsm1qigFVmz6-v2afBukftoZJNao%24&> to reserve your place.
