Ag Tech & the Future of Farming

March 11, 2019

The National Corn Growers Association, along with the National Pork Board, co-sponsored a U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance panel on ag tech, advanced breeding techniques and the future of farming at this year’s South by Southwest, or SXSW. Held in Austin, Texas, SXSW is a collection of conferences and festivals that focus on the film, media, music and technology industries.


Our panel gave the full room of attendees a first-hand account of how modern agriculture is helping farmers provide more food with far fewer resources. Panelists include:


  • Megan Vollstedt, Executive Director, Iowa AgriTech Accelerator
  • Darren Anderson, Ph.D., President and Co-Founder, Vive Crop Protection
  • Randy Spronk, Minnesota Pig & Crop Farmer
  • Alex Heine, Director of Customer Experience, Quantified Ag
