  "The National Conference for Food and Agribusiness provides broad insight into agricultural producers' needs, preferences and priorities, as well as marketplace trends. Benefits beyond research include access to the Center for Food and Agricultural Business economists and team. Networking with conference participants provides added value in contextualizing lessons through an applied lens focused on agriculture."
