Discussion will explore multiple threats to U.S. food and ag supply chain.
Lenexa, Kan., (Sept. 26, 2022) — Andrew Rose, agriculture industry consultant, will join Clinton Griffiths, host of “AgDay TV” and editor of Farm Journal magazine, to discuss the threat of agroterrorism to America’s food supply during Farm Journal’s next Farm Country Update. The free online event is titled “Agroterrorism Remains a Significant Threat to U.S. Farms and Food Supply” and is set for Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2022, at 3 p.m. CDT.
“There are many threats to our food and ag supply chain including climate, geopolitics and those who seek to harm our ability to provide reliable food for our country,” said Rose. “Clinton and I will explore some known threats to the food and ag supply chains and delve into the agroterrorism aspects of perception, actions and remedies.”
The event will address all aspects of agroterrorism from property vandalism and biological weapons to cyberattacks and corporate espionage. The discussion will include how those events can impact food production, distribution and profitability of agriculture businesses as well as how U.S. farmers can protect themselves from these risks. Audience participants will be able to submit questions to the discussion.
“America’s farmers do a fantastic job focusing on producing an abundant food supply,” said Griffiths. “Unfortunately, for a host of reasons, there are bad actors hoping to stop, steal or destroy their ability to do that work. Andrew is the person to tell them what to watch for, who may be trying to impact their farm and why.”
