    Congratulations to Roger, John, Jewel & the team for a great event. Here is a link to the 6/20 "Food IT: Soil to Fork" conference at Stanford I mentioned during the business judging panel.

    Thanks for the comment. Sustainability has to be part of the discussion when we talk about innovation in ag. Great point.

    Many talented and influential people in the agriculture and technology industry. Inspiring to be with some of the decisions makers in the industry. I found it disheartening that the only speaker that even mentioned the need to address the significant pollution problems surrounding agriculture was the representative from Monsanto. This is pressing matter that should be part of any conversation around improving and investing in agriculture. Water saving and maximizing yield is important, without conservation and sustainability at the core, then the problems will be acerbated. I hope there will be more of these gatherings, and that sustainability, and education be an integral component in the conversations around the best agricultural solutions to invest in.
