As a futurist, I view one of my main responsibilities as helping farmers and leaders in the agricultural industry learn how jump the curve when it comes to future trends.

"The next era of farming is just around the corner." And futurist Jack Uldrich will be discussing the top ten trends that will be affecting agricultural leaders at this year's FS Agronomy Event in Peoria, IL.

When it comes to the future of farming, Uldrich says the most provocative trends include GMO's, Robotics, the Internet of Things, Urban Agriculture, Big Data, Precision Farming and Nanotechnology. When it comes to nanotechnology, Uldrich knows where of he speaks. As the author of "The Next Big Thing is Really Small," Uldrich focuses a fair amount of his research on the on the latest trends in nanotechnology. He says, "Nanotechnology has a range of practical agriculture applications in everything from advanced packaging and next-generation sensors to advanced animal husbandry techniques."
When it comes to Uldrich's commentary on the controversial GMO's, it has been said, "These are realistic predictions. More people are seeing the benefits of and necessity for genetic modifications of crops, but there are still very vocal opponents who slow the process of change."
