Vik Maraj, of Unstoppable Conversations, discusses how to improve the future of agriculture by letting go of the past.
Farmers can’t get out of their view about what limits them in fulfilling their future ambitions. Often they think that they are “on their own.” This view has been passed down by previous farm generations, however the limitations of generations past, no longer reflects the reality of today. In the past, farmers truly where on their own, left to battle it out each year for the hope a good yield, come harvest time. But today, farmers need to realize they are not on their own and to be able to re-imagine a new future of agriculture they must start reaching out to other farmers, organizations and networks.
The future of agriculture cannot improve by referencing the past; it requires us to bring forth a future that is entirely new.
