Webinar: Future of Agriculture in California

Event Date: 
March 30, 2023

What does the Central Valley look like in 2045?

The climate that has allowed California to become a global food producer is changing. Many producers already implement soil- and climate-smart practices like cover-cropping. How can agriculture producers and land owners continue to make profit and increase yields under drought, groundwater use restrictions, and warmer weather? How can California support farmers' transition to new practices and adoption of new technologies?

The Maddy Institute, in partnership with Climate Now and the Livermore Lab Foundation, will host an audience of 250+ in-person attendees and many more virtual participants at this free-of-charge, first-of-its-kind summit on March 30, 2023 at California State University, Fresno's Satellite Student Union.

Engage with the community, industry, policymakers, and academia in a technical discussion to explore the opportunities, technologies, and challenges for agriculture in a changing climate.
