Pam Marrone, founder and CEO of Marrone Bio Innovations in Davis, will participate in an industry panel at the fifth annual Agriculture 2.0 conference Tuesday at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square.
The panel will debate the topic of “Feeding a Growing Global Population.” The discussion will explore technologies with the potential to curb environmental impact while producing enough food to feed a projected world population of 9 billion people by 2050.
Marrone’s company, Marrone Bio Innovations, discovers, develops and markets effective and environmentally responsible products that fill unmet needs for weed, plant disease and invasive pest management. The company plays a leading role in developing and supplying effective, natural agricultural products that meet the challenge of delivering higher yields while maintaining a sustainable food production system.
Ag 2.0, which runs Monday and Tuesday, brings together venture capitalists and early-stage companies, as well as senior decision makers in agribusiness and farmland funds, commodities experts, growth stage and institutional investors, and key industry insiders and policy makers. The conference provides a forum for hundreds of investors, entrepreneurs and industry experts to hold panel discussions, presentations, industry roundtables and networking sessions with individuals who will work to catalyze and capitalize sustainable agriculture as an asset class.
