In recent years, the number of pollinators appears to be in decline due to various factors. Western Growers' members can learn more about current issues surrounding pollinators and best practices to sustain their services during the next Lunch & Learn webinar on April 27.

Pollinators are an essential component of both natural and agricultural ecosystems. While they support biodiversity and habitats, they also play a key role in the production of crops that require pollination—such as the case of most fruits and vegetables.

It’s April and that means WG members are likely in Annual Meeting limbo; far enough removed from the activities of the 90th Annual Meeting held in San Diego last November to be reflecting on them and perhaps not thinking ahead to this year’s Annual Meeting. Well, it’s our job to bring you out of limbo and remind you of why you need to be thinking of both.

Since its official launch in December 2015, Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology (WGCIT) has quickly become the “go to” place for where innovation meets agriculture. Recently, the WGCIT launched WG 2.0: The WGCIT AgTech Blog to provide insight into everything from how tech gurus develop innovative products to the steps entrepreneurs take to get their companies started.
