The next stop in the AgTechX Ed series of events co-hosted by Western Growers and the California Department of Food and Agriculture is open for registration.

The half-day AgTechX Ed Summit at Woodland Community College on June 1 will be comprised of three panels, in addition to several keynote addresses, covering topics including: industry issues and skill identification; education and workforce development strategies; and current and future workforce needs on the farm.

Verdant Robotics Co-Founders CEO Gabe Sibley and COO Curtis Garner return to Voices of the Valley to continue their discussion on how they make sure their company focuses on creating agricultural solutions - instead of just showing off shiny robots.

The duo envision a future where farmers and technologists work in tandem to turn fieldworkers into data workers, bridging the perpetual gap in the labor force by mechanization and teaching valuable skillsets to current employees.

Verdant Robotics Co-Founders CEO Gabe Sibley and COO Curtis Garner join Voices of the Valley to discuss the power that digitized precision farming gives to the industry.

Verdant Robotics wasn't "a solution looking for a problem," Gabe says; instead, the multi-action robot that provides both data analytics and crop applications is the result of a six-month road trip that was spent talking to farmers and refining the technology that is now used on everything from carrots to onions to garlic.
