Join author Amy Wu and Lindsey Lusher Shute, CEO and founder of the Farm Generations Cooperative and is co-owner of Hearty Roots Community Farm in Clermont, New York.
Amy's book, From Farms to Incubators: Spotlighting Women Innovators Working to Solve Farming Challenges, presents women entrepreneurs who are revolutionizing the food industry through agricultural technology in order to combat the growing number of issues farmers face today––climate change, water and soil insecurity, and a rapidly growing population, to name a few. Agtech, the intersection of agriculture and technology, works with drones, artificial intelligence, sophisticated soil sensors, data analytics, blockchain technology, and robotics to sustainably secure the food supply in the future. It has become essential to farm profitability and sustainability as more agribusinesses seek out technological solutions to increase productivity. Amy Wu––founder and chief content director of From Farms to Incubators and the communications manager at Hudson Valley Farm Hub––tells the stories of diverse women innovators in this field, and the power they hold in the growing agricultural business.
