Written By: Madison Hire
100 students under 25 years-old from 45 different countries gathered for four days in Brasilia, Brazil to talk about feeding a hungry planet. Zebadiah Davis, a senior studying Agribusiness, had the opportunity to be one of the individuals that was able to present his ideas on improving sustainability in agriculture and interact with global ag leaders from Bayer Crop Science. Participants had the opportunity to tour the largest farm in Brazil. The farm was 240,000 acres producing cotton, soybeans, and corn. “Overall, I gained a better perspective on global agriculture. I deeply appreciate culture and how we can all be united by a common cause: Agriculture and feeding people,” said Davis. This experience is one that he will forever carry with him, learning about his passion, gaining a deeper understanding of troubles our world is facing and being able to be a hand in finding a solution to those problems.
