(JAMESTOWN, N.D.) – North Dakota Farmers Union is set to host the Evolution Ag Summit: The Carbon Conundrum on Feb. 21 in Jamestown. The one-day event will focus on carbon reduction initiatives that may shape agriculture and food supply chains.
“It’s important that farmers understand how they can benefit from programs and initiatives to store carbon through specific farming practices that help balance the atmosphere,” said North Dakota Farmers Union President Mark Watne. “We’re connecting producers with industry leaders at this summit, so all have a deeper understanding of programs and carbon-reduction initiatives.”
Zach Johnson, The Millennial Farmer, will keynote the summit.
Other speakers at the event include representatives from ADM, CHS, Anheuser-Busch, NDSU, Midwest AgEnergy, NRCS, Bushel and more. Topics include sustainability commitments from agribusiness, renewable fuel trends, public and private conservation incentives, and farmer/rancher perspectives on carbon sequestration.
The event is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Farmers Union state office. To register, go to ndfu.org/evolutionag.
