Imagine a world where agriculture seamlessly melds with technology. That's the goal of the 2024 Ag Innovation Challenge, which has just unveiled its top ten semi-finalists ready to shape that vision. 

For a decade, this platform has been lighting the way for aspiring agri-preneurs. And this year, there's more on the table than ever. Semi-finalists are in for a treat, as they’ll hone their pitching skills with help from experts at Cornell University. They're also gearing up to meet potential backers at an upcoming convention, where networking opportunities abound. And let's not forget there's a cool $165,000 in award money waiting for the most innovative. 

But the heart of the challenge goes beyond mere funds. It's a canvas for change-makers to paint their vision of a better, more sustainable agriculture future. These trailblazing ideas aim to provide solutions, not just for the farming community, but for a world that heavily relies on agriculture. 

Behind this grand event stand giants of the industry. With the likes of Farm Credit leading the charge, and notable sponsors including Bayer, John Deere, Farm Bureau Bank, Farm Bureau Financial Services, and T-Mobile offering support, it's clear the future of farming is bright.
