American farmland and ranchland are rapidly disappearing, threatening our food security, undermining the agricultural economy, and making us vulnerable to climate shocks. What can be done? That question is at the heart of an upcoming June 29 Agri-Pulse Communications, Inc. webinar. Speakers will address a new report from American Farmland Trust, which maps three alternative futures out to the year 2040, which will be released earlier that day. This webinar will highlight findings and what they mean for the future of agriculture. Speakers include:

- USDA Chief of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Terry Cosby
- Ambassador Kip Tom
- John Piotti
- Katharine Burgess

Agri-Pulse Editor Sara Wyant served as moderator for the event. The webinar is sponsored by the American Farmland Trust.
