Rowen Foundation and University of Georgia to host “Future of Agriculture” Event 


Georgia’s newest knowledge community is teaming up with the state’s historical leader in agricultural innovation to discuss the prospects of Georgia’s largest industry. Leaders in agriculture, technology and innovation, will gather at the University of Georgia’s new Delta Innovation Hub for the “Future of Agriculture,” a one-hour event kicking off the Rowen Foundation’s 2022 Thought Leadership Series.   

The event’s keynote will be given by Stefan Caspari, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Grain and Protein for AGCO, a global leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural machinery and precision ag technology. Caspari will discuss the company’s focus on sustainability and innovative work to create systems addressing animal welfare, food security, support for farmers and access to healthy food in a growing population, and how its AGCO Foundation contributes to those efforts.  

Dean Nicholas T. Place of UGA’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences will offer remarks and discuss how additional industry considerations such as healthcare, diversity, climate change and environmental resiliency connect to and inform the future of agriculture.
