Tallahassee, Fla. — Thursday concluded the first ever Florida-Israel Agriculture Innovation Summit, hosted by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) and organized by the Florida-Israel Business Accelerator (FIBA). The four-day virtually-held summit kicked off Monday, November 16 with remarks from Commissioner Fried. The summit covered a wide range of topics, with participants hearing from growers, scientists, government officials, and others on the latest in agricultural technology, drones and agrobotics, hemp and cannabis, and challenges facing the industry.
Over 600 registered attendees heard from 63 speakers and panelists from 27 companies over four days in the agriculture, cannabis, technology, and other industries, and key educational and government stakeholders. The summit follows up on Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried’s trade mission to Israel last year, after which she formed Florida’s first Agriculture Innovation Workgroup to recommend new practices.
