Five start-up companies have been added to the roster of agtech leaders working out of the Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology (WGCIT). These companies, in addition to the inaugural six residents in the WGCIT, will work both independently and collaboratively to create innovations that will help solve agriculture’s biggest challenges. They will also play an integral role in the development of several new programs and events hosted by the WGCIT, such as Tech Talks.
