Annual Agriculture Conference

On November 27, 2018, the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago will hold a conference to explore issues surrounding the challenges, prospects, and opportunities of agricultural technology for farms and rural areas of the Midwest, with a particular focus on mechanisms for funding new technologies and their implementation. In light of the ties between farm households and off-farm income, the intersection of agricultural technology and rural economic life will play an important role in the future of the Midwest. At the conference, experts from academia, industry, and policy institutions will come together to discuss developments in technologies that are shaping the future for agriculture and the Midwestern economy. The goals of the conference include understanding technological change and its effects on farming and rural communities; examining policies that affect the rate and spread of technological change; analyzing the primary influences of new technologies on the Midwest, especially for employers, health systems, and educational institutions; and considering potential ways to fund agricultural innovations and improvements, particularly given lower farm profits in recent years.
