Seed World Presents: Our Innovate Series Of Panel Discussions

Seed World U.S. is excited to be delivering a brand-new element to ASTA’s Field Crop Seed Convention in Orlando next week: the Seed World Innovate Series of expert panels. During three separate panels, we’ll be joined by top industry thought leaders to discuss, dig into, and quite possibly debate some of the most critical big-picture priorities facing the seed industry today. 

If you’ll be in Orlando for the convention, mark your calendars for these not-to-be-missed discussions. All panels will take place in the Seed Expo Theatre. 

If travelling in person to the convention isn’t an option for you, stay tuned for recaps of the Seed World Innovate Series in our newsletter and online.
