Developing value added opportunities in agriculture is the focus of a conference in Minneapolis Tuesday.
The theme of the Minnesota Agricultural Utilization Research Institute’s New Uses Forum is intersecting innovation and investment in food and agriculture.
AURI executive director Shannon Schlecht tells Brownfield there’s potential in fermentation.
“Just looking at what are these other opportunities around using circular approaches and agricultural feedstocks into high-value molecules or different feed ingredients or supplements.”
He says developing new uses for ag products helps solidify the farm economy.
