2018 Bayer AgVocacy Forum & Commodity Classic

Welcome to the virtual newsroom for the 2018 Bayer AgVocacy Forum as well as activities during Commodity Classic, in Anaheim, California. The Forum has been held for more than a decade and started with the goal of stimulating thoughtful discussion about the food and agriculture industry. This year’s program includes a new segment on AgTech Talks.

From both the AgVocacy Forum and Commodity Classic you will find photos, session audio, interviews (both audio and video) which we hope will be helpful to you and your publication efforts.
