Advances in technology will be showcased in Shaping Tomorrow’s World: Path to a Profitable Future, the theme of Alltech’s 2012 North American Lecture Tour. Speakers on the 24 stop tour, taking place from Jan. 11- Feb. 3, will explore how the latest technological developments can move the agriculture industry forward.

The lecture tour will examine such issues as programmed nutrition, epigenitics, sales organizations, the Alltech Ag Network, social media and the implementation of algae in our nutrition program.

“Change is imminent. Global demand for fuel, food and other commodities will only continue to increase as the world's population and wealth rise. We must embrace revolutions in the industry if we want to stay competitive,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech.

“We believe there are some tremendous new opportunities to be seized by the ag industry, and we look forward to sharing these ideas on our 2012 Alltech North American Lecture Tour,” said Geoff Frank, sales manager of North America. “To quote Steve Jobs, ‘People with passion can change the world for the better.’”
