“Marked by a desire to investigate and learn”- this is the definition of curious in Webster’s dictionary. While this characterization may accurately describe a third grader’s eagerness to learn in the classroom, does it describe the agricultural industry? Curiosity has put men on the moon, sequenced the human genome, seen physicists complete a decades-long search for the Higgs boson and now it has led us to precision nutrition, epigenetics and a nutritional revolution. Are we staying curious?
During this year’s 28th annual North American Lecture Tour, Alltech will be challenging attendees to Stay Curious. The 23- stop tour, taking place from Feb.12- March 1, will encourage attendees to stretch beyond conventional practices and explore how the latest technological developments can move the agriculture industry forward today.
“As an agricultural industry, we are faced with increases in corn and soy prices and a rising global population to feed, all while trying to find solutions to minimize pollution and maximize traceability. Instead of waiting for someone else to solve our problems, we need to embrace these global challenges together,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “To be successful, you must adapt, have curiosity and embrace change.”
