We are delighted to announce that the newly re-appointed US Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack will open the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit on Tuesday March 9 at 9am PT.


He has returned to the role he held from 2009 to 2017 under President Obama, making him the second longest-serving US Secretary of Agriculture.

We’re excited to hear Secretary Vilsack outline his priorities for the USDA as it tackles a very different set of challenges in 2021. He has identified “Why Not?” opportunities for agriculture, the food industry and rural America that align closely with the summit themes:

– Produce healthy, local and regional foods
– Create a thriving bio-based manufacturing sector
– Embrace sustainable practices that enhance soil health
– Deliver science-based solutions to help mitigate and reduce climate change

Join us on March 9-10 for a deep dive into the future of climate-smart agriculture in the US and connect with 1,300 global agri-food leaders with the power and the desire to make change happen.
