Bayer Executive Education Course: Sustainability in Agriculture
Monday, March 19, 2012
Why another Executive Course you might ask? Well, there is a growing need for practical education around the issue of sustainable agriculture among growers, agriculture/environmental science businesses, and people like the employees at Bayer CropScience. So, with the help of the North Carolina State University College of Ag and Life Sciences, as well as the Poole College of Management, Bayer CropScience is hosting the first “Sustainability in Agriculture: A Bayer Executive Course” on March 19-21.
Sessions focus on developing thought leadership in the emerging science of sustainable agriculture, as well as emphasize growing sustainable businesses and reducing the world’s agricultural footprint while meeting the social, environmental and economic needs of present and future generations. This session is about cultivating ideas and answers around key topics being discussed in ag: innovation and technology, green space and urbanization, the corporate value of sustainability, federal environmental regulation and more.
