NEW AG INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY - BACKGROUND

Agribusinesses must navigate an increasingly complex environment. But rapid changes can create new possibilities for companies that recognise opportunities, innovate, and evolve strategies quickly.
This programme provides a broad picture of the interaction taking place between High Tech Agricultural sectors and shows how Traditional Agricultural practices are changing.
New Ag International is deeply involved as the emerging industry aggregator and leading knowledge disseminator in 6 SECTORS:

  • Plant Nutrition
  • Biostimulants
  • Biological Plant Protection
  • Irrigation/Fertigation
  • Greenhouse Cropping
  • Precision Agriculture

Based on our 16 years’ experience, expertise, feedback from the 1st edition in 2017 and our vast network of contacts, including: academia, industry, policy makers and consultants, across all circles in these sectors, we have redesigned a 8-day programme to better prepare decision makers to contribute to the value creation of their respective enterprises
