A Wider Tent for Agriculture by 2040
You are here:   Blog  »  Farm and Ranch Management  »  A Wider Tent for Agriculture by 2040

March 25, 2019 

Agri-Pulse recently held its Ag & Food Policy Summit in Washington, DC, to take a look at what farming and agriculture will need in farm and food policies by 2040. The year 2040 was chosen as it is basically when the next generation of young farmers born today will become active in farming operations and an ever changing agricultural industry. Many interesting and informed speakers gave their thoughts on the changes agriculture, food, and farming will see in just two decades.

One underlying point that was brought out in numerous ways is that agriculture will be a wider tent than it is now. New products and new methods will engage farmers and end users from the farm to the table. World protein demand will grow in the US with meat, egg, and dairy producers leading the way domestically and internationally. But there will be additional protein sources from plant-based and cellular protein producers that will broaden consumer choices. There will be new and enhanced crops created by ever improving technology. Production methods on the farm will become more sustainable and traceable all the way to the end user, which will bring new players to agriculture.

An upcoming event in Omaha on May 1 and 2 will be of interest to those examining where consumer demand and agriculture are headed in the future. The Food & Ag at the Intersection Symposium brings together experts from all aspects of food production and agriculture to discuss how consumer trends will affect production agriculture and investment opportunities.
