Inspired by the success of Western Growers’ technology events held during the last several Annual Meetings, the Colorado Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association (CFVGA) is holding a similar event during its 4th annual conference in Denver on February 20, 2018. CFVGA is currently requesting proposals from qualified startup companies that are innovating agtech solutions to meet the pressing demands and challenges of growers, shippers and fresh food processors.

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.

Whole genome sequencing (WGS) is rapidly gaining traction as a tool for identifying the exact origins of an illness outbreak—but what is it and how does it work? On August 25, Western Growers, in partnership with the Produce Marketing Association and the United Fresh Produce Association, will host a free webinar briefing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on this tool.
