Southwest Agricultural Issues Summit set Sept. 9-11 in Austin
Agricultural leaders from across the greater Southwest region will be gathering for a three-day Southwest Agricultural Issues Summit September 9-11 at the Barton Creek Resort in Austin, to discuss key issues facing agriculture.
As the agricultural industry is facing an increasing number of hurdles to ensure its ability to continue providing the food and fiber for the world's growing population, producers have bigger challenges than just what Mother Nature throws at them. With an increasing urban population, generations removed from the farm, it's imperative the agricultural industry work together to stay abreast of issues that greatly impact the ability of the industry to continue thriving. The Southwest Ag Issues Summit is an effort to gather key agricultural influencers together to help unite the voice of agriculture.
This event is co-hosted by the Texas Ag Forum and the Southwest Council of Agribusiness, combining the groups' individual annual discussions.
The Texas Ag Forumis a group of ag leaders and representatives coordinated by the Ag and Food Policy Center at Texas A&M University from across Texas that provides an open forum for public discussion of problems and issues facing agriculture.
The Southwest Councilis an alliance of agricultural organizations, financial institutions, and businesses, established to actively advocate for strong agricultural policy which is so important to the businesses and economy of the greater Southwest area, including Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
