Climate change is forcing a revolution in how we grow, produce, and consume our food.

New agricultural technologies promise to help growers, ranchers, and foresters adapt more quickly to some of the most serious impacts of our changing climate through improved yields, efficiency, and productivity; enhanced drought and weather tolerance; and expanded protection for plant and animal health from new pests and diseases.  The agriculture sector also has opportunities to lead climate change mitigation efforts, adopting new practices and technologies that can help improve soil health, sequester carbon, support conservation activities, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

As part of our Pesticides & Biotechnology practice, we help clients navigate the legal and regulatory landscape for agricultural technology and innovations.  We invite you to explore our AgTech Regulatory Resource Center to learn more about these developments and trends, and contact any of our lawyers for more information.
