During 2018, iSelect, The VanTrump Report and The Yield Lab Institute are sponsoring a series of weekly webinars featuring the best in agriculture innovation. Agrifood Conversations is all about driving innovation and each month will highlight a specific theme, from biologicals to vertical farms, featuring emerging topics such as soil health, biologics, plant genetics, vertical farming, precision agriculture, herd health and management, and aquaculture, to name a few. Once a quarter, we’ll open up the conversation with a panel of experts on that month’s topic. Learn about new trends in ag, connect with industry leaders and discover new solutions.

Join us each Thursday at 3pm CT for Agrifood Conversations.

Title: Using Chloroplast Genetic Engineering to Develop Next Generation High Performing Crops
Time: Thursday, March 1st @ 3:00 pm CT

Listen to Sharon Berberich, CEO of Plastomics explain why chloroplast engineering is the next front in the push to bring gene editing to agriculture, offering researchers a high-level of transgene expression, multi-gene engineering in a single transformation event, and transgene containment via maternal inheritance. Plastomics’ has the technology to bring new crops with multiple trait solutions to farmers faster and at lower cost than today’s solutions. Precision gene editing and site-directed integration by natural processes allow easy creation and stacked traits. This stacking process and maternal inheritance speeds breeding and trait integration pipelines. Yield increases via insect resistance management, metabolic engineering and photosynthesis enhancements.
