The Future of Ag

We create an inclusive collaborative ecosystem to meaningfully engage the next generation of agriculturalists.

The technology industry is constantly shifting and evolving, requiring a baseline understanding of often very complex systems. Getting to the core knowledge required to be effective with technology is important to the time and attention of growers.

Transfering Knowledge Across Generations

According to the U.S. Census of Agriculture, almost 70 percent of growers are over the age of 45 and almost 30 percent are over the age of 65. Over the next 10 years, there’s going to be a great transfer of knowledge that needs to take place in order for the next generation of growers to succeed. This challenge is heightened by the fact that in previous generations, growers were more apt to share best practices.  

The image of a grower needs to be updated with the new era. Learn how we are tackling agriculture education’s most prominent pain points on page 16 of our report.

Partnering with Educators and Researchers

We help educators apply their research to real world scenarios that could lead to commercial products. 

Learn about how Grand Farm brings together universities, innovators, and industry professionals to accelerate economic development and develop food security and production. 

Attend Ag Ed Events​

Educators must continue to improve understanding of agriculture to attract and retain people in the industry. Each of our annual events have education workshops and components to bring together educators, researchers, and industry to build connections and transfer knowledge across generations.
