Last year there were 17 states represented, including Costa Rica and Puerto Rico at the event. Now in it’s second year, the purpose of the Latinos in Agriculture Leaders Forum is manifold. One is to explore deliberate approaches in connecting agricultural stakeholders to improve Latino/Hispanic representation in Agriculture. Another is to inform industry, government, and academia of the huge potential in creating a Latino/Hispanic pipeline of future students, employees, and consumers. And finally it is to develop and establish a post-conference network of participants interested in addressing challenges in the different market segments related to students, universities, and businesses.

This August 2012 report from the Pew Hispanic Center that reports the milestone that Hispanics now are the largest minority group on US college campuses. This event is a unique opportunity for anyone interested in helping to shape the future of the education as it relates to the agricultural industries. We encourage you to register and attend the Latinos in Agriculture Leaders Forum.
