What if... algae is the answer?

What if... algae is the answer?
Anxiously, I awaited the opportunity to be in a room of international wisdom. The agenda had been reviewed and re-reviewed. As we approached the 2014 Alltech Symposium in Lexington, KY, I had been fully prepared {and excited} to attend sessions about drones, soil microbes and non-traditional farms. What fascinated me the most was their algae project. Over the last decade, I’ve been told many times by family, by friends and even doctors, to try taking a Fish Oil supplement to improve Crohn’s & Ulcerative Colitis conditions.

When is the last time you dreamed big?

When is the last time you dreamed big?
Over the last year I have attended my fair share of conferences, seminars and sessions.

I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be able to hear some of the top experts in their field speak and I have tried to soak up every bit of knowledge I can from them.

Robots, Drones, Big Data...Oh My!

Robots, Drones, Big Data...Oh My!
This year I was honored to be asked back to cover the events of Alltech's 30th Annual International Symposium as a guest blogger. I absolutely love this event because it is full of information and actually keeps your attention. (Which is normally a pretty hard task for me...you know the classic hold your head up by resting it in on your hand in attempts to make it look like you aren't napping through the session?) Yeah, that has yet to happen here! This year's Symposium was all about the "What if?"

The Great Unknown Below Our Feet

The Great Unknown Below Our Feet
Over 500 years ago, Leonardo DaVinci observed, “We know more about the movement of celestial bodies than about the soil underfoot.” Five centuries later, as NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft explores beyond our solar system, a galaxy of trillions of soil microbes inches below our feet remains unknown. As the global population rises each year, so does our concern over how agriculture will be able to close the yield gap. Our land yields must rise 70 to 100 percent by 2050 in order to feed a world of 9 billion people. If every field produced the highest attainable yield, worldwide crop production would only rise by 45 to 70 percent.
