In an effort to develop technologies that meet growers’ exact needs, the Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology (WGCIT) and its resident start-up companies invite you to participate in our AgTech Survey.

The agtech startups working out of the WGCIT are dedicated to creating technologies based on growers’ input. The results of this short survey will help the startups determine which tech platforms are most useful to our members.

Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology will be coming together with Google IgniteCS and Facebook to sponsor herScript Hacks, an annual regional hackathon, on April 29-30. Sponsorship is part of WG's effort to develop the future agtech workforce.The event is meant to engage students studying STEM-related topics (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) by encouraging them to work with industry leaders to create technological solutions to real-world problems.
