The Nevada Indoor Agriculture Conference is an event not to be missed. It will be cohosted by the Nevada Governor's Office of Economic Development and Seedstock, a social venture dedicated to fostering innovation and entrepreneurship in sustainable agriculture. The conference will focus on the sustainable technologies as well as economic opportunities associated with Controlled Environment Agriculture and the increase in local food production and security that could result from pursuing such endeavors.

Steve Hill, Executive Director of Nevada's Governor's Office of Economic Development says, "the agriculture industry provides immense opportunities for economic development in Nevada, especially as our state is perfectly placed to capitalize on the ongoing commercialization of exciting technologies in the hydroponic, aeroponic and aquaponic fields.”
