The German American Agricultural Technology Symposium Talks the Future of Farming in Colorado and Germany
September 12, 2019
Each year, the German American Chamber of Commerce – Colorado Chapter (GACC-CO) highlights one aspect of German-American business with their German American Business Series (GABS). This year, they’re taking a look at agriculture.
In addition to its reputation for manufacturing, Germany is also highly invested in agricultural production, with almost half of its land dedicated to agriculture. In fact, Germany is the third largest exporter of agricultural products worldwide. Similarly, over 60% of Colorado’s land is used for agriculture, contributing $41 billion to its economy every year.
On September 19, the day-long German American Agricultural Technology Symposium in Denver will foster dialogue about the challenges and opportunities facing the modern agricultural industry and the new technologies being developed to address them. Attendees will engage with these topics at a keynote speech addressing Digitization in German Agriculture, panel discussions, and an exposition of cutting-edge technologies in agriculture. Fittingly, the day will end with a farm-to-table meal.
This symposium is an opportunity for leaders in German and American agriculture to learn from each other by investigating the similarities and differences between their approaches and possibilities for further collaboration.
