New AG International recently hosted an in-depth video discussion with a panel of industry leaders on creating opportunities for military veterans in agribusiness. Led by Mike DeSa, Founder and Managing Director at AGD Consulting, the panel explored transition from the military to agribusiness and the cultural shock that often follows, how agribusinesses can get involved earlier, and ways to address networking gaps. The panel included:
