Dear Agvocate,

First things first, have you re-subscribed to our mailing list? It only takes a minute and it means you can stay connected with the Youth Ag-Summit community – so please click on the button above!

Now that’s out of the way, on to the fun stuff! This month, we’re gazing into our crystal ball, taking a look at trends set to transform our food system in the future: from insect-based snacks to robots in the fields. Our agvocate community is already ahead of the curve – lots of them have wasted no time getting to grips with the future of farming and are busy shaking up agriculture around the world.

So as we look to the future, the question we have is: which future agricultural innovation or trend do you think will have the biggest impact? Tweet us your answer @YouthAgSummit
