The AgTechX Ed workforce development event tomorrow at Hartnell College in Salinas will feature a fireside chat with Karen Ross, Secretary of the California Department of Food and Agriculture – and the opportunity to examine robots from agtech startups up close.

The startups showcasing at the event include AerialPlot, Corigin, Pago, iFoodDS, AgTools, AgMonitor, Kiptraq, AgNote, Ganaz and Boost Biomes.

Robots from Naio Technologies, Verdant Robotics, Carbon Robotics and Burro will be parked outside the STEM building during the end-of-event mixer.

In 2021, Western Growers received nearly $750,000 in grant funding from the California Department of Food and Agriculture. Over the next three and a half years, these funds will be used to educate the next generation of agriculture employee.

WG will be working with California Community College ag faculty throughout the state to develop educational modules that can be quickly embedded in current courses at any community college.
