ARA Webinar: Doing Ag Business in the E-Commerce Age

Registration is open to ARA members for the ARA Webinar: Doing Ag Business in the E-Commerce Age, offered in partnership with Faegre Drinker.

When: Thursday, Oct. 28 at 2 p.m. ET

The ag business landscape is constantly changing and increasingly using technology as means to conduct business. To recognize industry trends and member practices, ARA recently updated the Model Fertilizer Contract to formally recognize the validity of electronic signatures as a method for executing contracts. Please join us for a webinar with Faegre Drinker attorneys Ross Johnson, Paul Luehr, Lauren Steinhaeuser, Kathryn Allen, and Matt Scott to discuss the evolving world of electronic commerce.

Presenters will discuss the change to the Model Fertilizer Contract involving electronic signatures, best practices for using customer supply portals and related privacy implications, and an overview of future e-commerce trends—including the role of blockchain in agricultural contracts and the developing world of “smart” contracts.
