ASU Agribusiness Conference

02/13/2013, 8:00 AM - 3:45 PM

Established in 1995, the ASU Agribusiness Conference provides current information on the trends and issues which are affecting agriculture. The conference annually attracts over five hundred guests from five states, and its programs have featured over 115 agricultural and business speakers, including American Farm Bureau President Bob Stallman, former Secretaries of Agriculture Earl Butz and Dan Glickman, and ABC News correspondent John Stossel. Nationally syndicated farm broadcasters Orion Samuelson, Al Pell, and Ken Root have also appeared on the program.

According to Dr. Bert Greenwalt, Professor of Agricultural Economics and Director of the Agribusiness Conference, “Our guests tell us the conference provides unique information not available from other sources in the region. It provides our students with a tremendous opportunity to learn directly from agricultural experts and newsmakers.” For excellence in publicizing and enhancing the image of Jonesboro, The ASU Agribusiness Conference received the 2008 Betty T. Sloan Promotion Award from the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce.
