About the Iowa Ag Summit

The 2015 Iowa Ag Summit will highlight and promote agriculture. Most importantly, the event will allow elected officials and public policy leaders to have a public discussion on issues that are vital to the Iowa and American economy.

Every four years Iowa becomes an epicenter of American politics, often shaping and almost always reflecting national policy movements. Unfortunately, until now there has not been a forum solely dedicated to matters that directly affect Iowa farmers who feed and fuel not just the country, but the world.

Invited speakers will be given an opportunity to address the audience, then have a conversation with Bruce Rastetter (BIO) on a range of issues concerning American agriculture. Topics will include modern agriculture, renewable fuels, biosciences, GMO’s, grain and livestock markets, land conservation, and federal subsidies. Each participant will be given 20 minutes alone on stage.
