The American Farm Bureau, in partnership with Farm Credit, announced that ten teams advanced to the semifinal round of the 2023 Farm Bureau Ag Innovation Challenge. “The future of agriculture depends on innovative solutions to the challenges that we’re facing today,” says AFBF President Zippy Duvall. “The entrepreneurs behind the start-up companies we’re recognizing are committed to helping rural communities and supporting farmers and ranchers in their mission to provide the food, fuel, and fiber we all rely on.” The competition is an opportunity for individuals to showcase ideas and business innovations in agriculture. It’s the ninth year of the challenge, which was the first national business competition focused exclusively on rural entrepreneurs launching food and agriculture businesses. The ten semi-finalist teams are being awarded $10,000 each and will compete at the AFBF convention in Puerto Rico. Four teams will then advance to the final competition during the annual convention.
