Agrochemicals are also a popular topic.
They include antibiotics, insecticides, fungicides, herbicides, and fertilizers.
Agronomy, which includes plants like cotton, soy, cottonseed, wheat and soybean, has become the focus of this year’s conference.
Agribusinesses are increasingly moving toward a global approach to agriculture.
This includes planting crops at the edges of the world to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
This has become an increasingly popular way to grow crops and also is used by some agronomists as a way to increase production.
Agri-products have also been a hot topic at conferences, including a recent conference in New Zealand.
The government announced this year that it will buy $10 billion worth of agrochemical seeds.
The goal is to diversify its supply of these products, especially to help meet the demand for agro-foods in the future.
The Agronomy Institute’s conference is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U-S-A, and the UGA Cooperative Extension.
