WASHINGTON - How can farmers address a changing climate during global volatility and market uncertainty? This is the topic of the upcoming April 27 Agri-Pulse Communications, Inc. webinar, "Scaling innovation for climate action: The road map." This complimentary one-hour program will discuss how technology and innovation will drive environmental change.

"There's no doubt farmers and ranchers will be faced with new challenges - and new opportunities - as government officials and private companies look to adapt to a changing climate," says Agri-Pulse Managing Editor Spencer Chase, who will moderate the event. "It's critical to take the time to discuss what this means for producers and what opportunities for innovation are available to help them adapt."

The webinar will take place at 2 p.m. ET and is sponsored by Pivot Bio. Speakers will bring awareness to unique technologies, creative initiatives and new revenue streams for growers. You can sign up for this free webinar by clicking on this link.
