Today’s episode features Brian Lutz. Brian leads the Farming Solutions & Digital sub-function within the Research & Development organization for Corteva Agriscience.  In his role, Brian is responsible for the development of digital solutions that support the R&D pipeline and enable Corteva’s business.  Brian joined Corteva in 2021 in the Portfolio Strategy Program Management role and continues to contribute to the company’s long-term strategic planning.

Brian and I talk about the role of digital tools in the future of agriculture. No, not another app or piece of software farmers are expected to use, but how a company like Corteva can leverage these tools internally to produce superior products and outcomes for farmers. Through this discussion we cover a variety of important topics, such as farmer data, biologicals, artificial intelligence, and more. 

Prior to starting at Corteva, Brian was Chief Science Officer at The Climate Corporation, and was also a member of Bayer Crop Science’s R&D Leadership Team. Brian was raised on a fourth-generation corn and soybean farm in Ohio and remains closely connected to his family’s farming operation.

Make sure you stay tuned to the end of today’s episode for a spotlight of Replenish Nutrients which is based in the Calgary area with their CEO Neil Weins.
