Disruptive Agriculture

Visions for the Future. Keynotes & Discussion

Look beyond the Field!  The first keynote speakers of the day raised questions and invited our participants to search for answers together. Are the technologies used today really helpful? How can we better distribute the costs of food production? How do we succeed in innovation that is actually centred on agriculture and how do we develop concepts that do justice to technical progress and social demands? Do we have to, can we save agriculture by focusing on methods like regenerative agriculture? Today the agricultural business is not only confronted with everyday problems, but also with new and growing demands from consumers and industry.

With these questions Farm & Food opened its fifth on January 2020 congress in Berlin. The first keynote speakers of the day invited our participants to search for answers together.
