Twenty-first century agriculture has many more global interconnections than ever before. This webinar will focus on the new mega trends impacting producers’ profitability and lifestyles. What will be the emerging nations’ role? What will be the economic game changers? How can producers position themselves to capitalize on these trends? Do high farmland values represent a credit or asset bubble? Where is the economy heading?

28/11/2011 Traceability - What You Need to Know & What's Happening
Businesses along the entire food chain strive hard to brand themselves as providing safe, healthy food. At the same time, public health, food safety, animal welfare, and sustainability are combining to drive the demand for food traceability as a critical tool. Transparency about the origins of food and having systems that can prove a food's origins are becoming key policy imperatives and are already mandatory in many countries.

12/12/2011 Looking Forward through a Rearview Mirror: Planning for the future
It is my thesis that if we separate the “business of farming” from real-estate ownership, a logical stepping stone is created. It is interesting that as soon as a child is born the most important lesson taught is that land ownership is sacred. Then 30 years later parents are puzzled why not only the farm child but all their children want to own land...and even worse theirs!
