Grand Farm is set to host its annual Cultivate Conference on Thursday, June 8 at the Fargo Theatre in downtown Fargo.

The Grand Farm Cultivate Conference is a gathering of agriculture technology pioneers. Its primary objective is to encourage the exploration of emerging technologies in the industry while providing solutions to challenges faced by the agriculture sector. Attendees are afforded the opportunity to witness the latest advancements in AgTech and their practical applications.

Cultivate will feature an impressive lineup of over 40 speakers. The conference panels will discuss the economic status of agriculture and the role of venture capital in the industry. There will also be presentations on the latest AgTech innovations by industry experts. Grand Farm will unveil its 2023 Grower Pain Point Report, which gathered feedback from regional growers. This feedback will help create products and technology that will effectively relieve their most significant challenges.

There will be a series of interactive workshops that will delve into various topics such as artificial intelligence and machine learning applications in agriculture, AgTech firms that are expanding their reach through international trade and partnerships, linking educators with AgTech experts to provide up-to-date career information to students, and direct communication with growers.
