Knowledge is the key to improve the odds and not just survive but thrive in the next decennium. Whether that be the knowledge to educate consumers about your practices, the knowledge needed to build resilient cropping systems that can handle Mother Nature’s whims, or the ability to read the tea leaves of the rapidly changing politics of markets and trade that create the demands for the commodities you produce.
