SUMMARY PAPERS

The 2021 Honor the Harvest Forum was the third annual convening and successfully connected farmers and ranchers with agricultural value chain leaders in food, fiber, and energy. Together, we identified and inspired specific actions to further innovation and investment that will be necessary to unlock the full potential of climate-smart agriculture nationwide.

The invitation-only, multi-day event, was a unique experience that created opportunities for targeted discussions and individual contributions –all with the intent of collaborating with peers and directly engaging with each participant during the three sessions. The conversations held during HTH2021 unveiled needs, insights, and actions for farmers, ranchers, and industry stakeholders to achieve our individual and collective missions while bringing the Decade of Ag Vision closer to reality.
