Join our discussion on how agricultural data is transformed into information and decision-making through novel approaches for data analysis while managing and maintaining privacy and protection for the farmers and consumers whose data are being utilized.

This event builds upon the Agricultural Data Privacy meeting, held in San Antonio in November 2019, which kicked off this broader effort and collaboration.


AGRICULTURE forms the backbone of human survival and well-being. It is one of the largest drivers of natural resource use and impact on the environment. As we have seen during the recent pandemic, our agriculture and food systems are critically important.

DATA are enabling us to better serve everyone from farmers, to consumers, to the environment, creating a world that is sustainable and healthy. Building for the future requires significant shifts in how we digitize and utilize data.
