The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in agriculture is gaining momentum, with applications ranging from crop-yield predictions to soil monitoring and autonomous robots. The upcoming education session at the Organic Grower Summit (OGS) 2023, titled “Unlocking the Value of AI on the Digital Farming Journey,” will delve into how AI and machine learning are providing data-driven insights and forecasts for specialty crop markets.
Scheduled for November 29-30 in Monterey, California, this session is presented Western Growers and OPN. The panel will be moderated Rob Trice, founder of Better Food Ventures, and feature industry experts Derek Azevedo, executive vice president at Bowles Farming, and Megan Nunes, CEO of Bountiful. These technology leaders will share their experiences and insights gained from their forays into digital technology.
As companies increasingly adopt AI to enhance decision-making processes, growers are looking to improve productivity while reducing waste in an era of rising costs. The 50-minute session will explore current AI technologies in use and examine the future of AI in agriculture.
Trice expresses his anticipation for the session, highlighting the extensive knowledge and expertise of the panelists in both farming and technology. He emphasizes the importance of focusing on the value that AI technologies can bring to farming operations rather than getting caught up in buzzwords and hype.
The Organic Grower Summit is an annual event that provides information relevant to organic growers and producers. It offers insights into the opportunities and challenges of organic fresh food production. The two-day event will also feature a trade show floor where exhibitors in the fields of soil amendment, ag technology, food safety, packaging, and equipment can connect with organic field production staff, supply chain managers, pest management advisors, and food safety experts.
The summit will take place at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa in Monterey, California. More details about the educational program, including session topics and speakers, will be released in the coming weeks.
