New VofV Podcast Episode – Navigating Climate Change: A Guide on How to Use Technology to Foster Climate-Resilient Agriculture

Posted on March 15, 2022 20:00 PM by WGCIT

Mariana Vasconcelos, an agtech prodigy who started her ag data company Agrosmart when she was 23 years old, provides a look into how the digital revolution is accelerating a cultural shift in agriculture globally in the newest episode of Voices of the Valley Podcast. As climate change leads to increased periods of drought and farmers have lower margins for error, she shares the steps needed for adopting more tech on the farm to create a more productive and sustainable agriculture.

She also speaks about how the development of agtech is a powerful solution to succession in farming – especially in a world where the industry is facing increasing regulations and is being asked to produce more food with less natural resources.
