The impact of things like sensor technology on agriculture will be vast and the changes are going to feel like a tsunami to some. Preparing farmers and leaders in agriculture for these changes is paramount.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 04, 2015
According to futurist Jack Uldrich, "There are several new technologies and global business trends in computer processing, data storage, bandwidth, the sequencing of genomes, advances in biotechnology, nanotechnology, and robotics that are going to double every year of this decade. The impact of these advances on agriculture will be vast and the changes are going to feel like a tsunami to some. Preparing farmers and leaders in agriculture for these changes is paramount."
Uldrich, who has addressed the PMA, AgConnect, Case IH, Minnesota Dairy Farmers Association and UnitedAg, among others in recent months, is passionate in his pursuit to prepare people in a wide variety of other industries as well. Uldrich is a regular speaker for healthcare, education, energy, finance, retail and manufacturing events and firmly believes that creativity and action are more powerful and versatile than knowledge.
But when it comes to the future of agriculture, Uldrich hits on hard hitting topics like GMOs, urban agriculture and sensor technology. In his blog post, A Futurist's Outlook: Five Technological trends in Agriculture Uldrich says, "consider just one recent advance: a new nanoparticle vaccine. If successful, this nanotechnology-enhanced treatment will allow cattle to receive a single vaccine for a multiple number of diseases, including bovine viral diarrhea, bovine ephemeral fever and cattle tick fever."
Following his keynote in Banff, Uldrich will address The Farm Credit Bank of Texas in Charleston, SC on March 5th and the Indiana Farm Buerau in Indianapolis on March 6th.
