Agriculture 2.0 is where the sustainable agriculture industry is being defined, built and funded. Since its premiere in New York City in the Fall of 2009, Agriculture 2.0 has garnered wide-ranging respect from all sides of the sustainable agriculture industry for its seriousness of purpose and ability to provide a fertile environment for collaboration. The second edition of the conference in Silicon Valley (March 2010) was double the size of the inaugural event.
