Agriculture is in Robert Saik's blood.
It began with his career on a mixed farm in Alberta, and he's since gone onto found and invest in many companies in the agricultural sector ranging from farming in Uganda, cattle, ag retail, fertilizer manufacturing, distribution, marketing, consulting, data, ag tech, robotics and now serves as CEO of AGvisorPRO, a connectivity and resource platform for agriculture.
Robert is an author, keynote speaker, entrepreneur and thought leader. He was recognized as the 2006 Agrologist of the Year and the 2014 Canadian Agri-Marketer of the Year.
Our conversation was bookended by Robert's interest in space and took us across the plains of Alberta to Uganda, Africa, and the challenges and opportunities we have, as a global civilization, to feed the world.
