London, September 21st 2018 – Challenge Advisory has invited Danny Royer – VP of Technology- Bowles Farming Company to be a speaker at AG 4.0 in San Francisco from 14-15 November 2018.
Mr. Royer will deliver a keynote address opening the conference and addressing the importance of technology in ag and will also be panellist on the ‘Understanding the Modern Farmer’ stream. This panel represents one of the main concerns in agriculture today. A broad comprehension of the farmer and their practices, trends, and challenges can help to better address broader challenges within the industry, such as efficiency, sustainability and profitability, helping to enable more concise and productive farming methods whilst reducing costs.
Danny Royer has been working in Specialty Crop Farming for over 10 years. Two years ago, Danny joined the Bowles Farming Company Team as the Vice President of Technology. Prior to Bowles, Danny worked in logistics and management roles for large vertically integrated agriculture operations in California’s San Joaquin Valley. Prior to his professional career, Danny received a BS in Agriculture Systems Management from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
As the Vice President of Technology at Bowles Farming Company Danny is responsible for researching and integrating technologies that have benefit to the Farm. Danny focuses much of his attention on how technology is going to change how decisions are made and how the processes behind those decisions are executed. Danny is a firm believer in servant style leadership. Cultivating crops is what Danny focused on in the early part of his career, but today he is also very focused on cultivating the success of those around him.
Speaking of Agriculture 4.0, Danny says “Agriculture 4.0 is an extremely exciting event to be a part of, as everyone in our industry face many of the same challenges and opportunities. Working together for the betterment of all is an event we are honored to be a part of.”
With the help of the Agricultural Supply Chain, Challenge Advisory have built strong insights into how digitalization can be integrated into US agriculture. The mission for our Agriculture 4.0 workshop is to help farmers better engage with the latest technology available in the market and present a wide range of solutions for the modern farmer.
To address these challenges, we have developed the AG 4.0 workshop, a programme designed around bringing key stakeholders from throughout US agriculture together to tackle the most pressing issues in relation to the stability of the market.
