Alltech 30th international symposium to highlight 'what if' solutions in science, agriculture, nutrition

Topics include crop science, Africa, on-farm solutions, aquaculture

As Alltech celebrates its 30th International Symposium on May 18-21, 2014, in Lexington, Ky., USA, it will invite its event delegates to explore the border between science and magic that genetics expert Dr. Eugenia Wang, University of Louisville, coined at last year's Symposium. Balancing pragmatism with possibility, the 2014 Symposium will venture into the "what if" solutions that lie within science, agriculture and nutrition.

Sessions will specifically focus on crop science, life sciences, Africa, business and technology, on-farm solutions, and opportunities with algae and aquaculture by delving into "What if:"

  • Farmers were more familiar with drones than tractors?
  • Bees and termites cease to exist?
  • We understood and could prevent the rise in precocious female puberty?
  • Alzheimer's disease and adult-onset diabetes are different arms of the same disease?
  • Africa harnessed the power of its oceans and aquaculture?
  • We address the problems of inconsistent farm yields in Africa?
  • Nutrigenomics could achieve one extra pig per litter or 5,000 liters more milk per cow?
  • Fish oil could be completely replaced in a sustainable way?
  • You could get all the health benefits of salmon through scrambled eggs?

Symposium registration is now open and available at an early discount rate of $599 until April 10.
