The New Normal Sesson III Featuring Karl Barnhart, Executive V.P. and C.M.O., Brandt Co.

Mr. Barnhart will discuss the new normal of agriculture.  Covid-19 has disrupted our daily lives in ways unimaginable. But throughout and ongoing, people have to eat. Karl will explore what’s already changed about production agriculture and how it is sure to evolve in the future. None of us has a crystal ball, but we already see an industry in transformation.
