    Evolving Agriculture: Using Genetics to Improve Farm Efficiency

    As the world population increases, efficient agriculture will become essential to mitigate the risks of fresh water and arable land scarcity. Innovations to solve these issues are already underway, in the form of technologies like sustainable desalination, biopesticides, vertical farming, and more. But one company is taking a different approach: genetically modified produce. Pairwise is a pioneering food start-up which utilizes Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats (CRISPR) technology to grow fruits and vegetables that are smaller, more snackable, more nutritious, and more disease resistant. Join us to hear from industry expert Thomas Walters on the state of the sustainable agriculture industry; Pairwise CFO Lynsey Wenger on their innovative approach to crop growth; and Boundless Senior Research Analyst Fernanda Avila Swinburn on how their environmental impact data compares to the competition.

    Time: 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM (EDT)
