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.

Western Growers (WG) will be hosting a series of four listening sessions in May about potential changes to the Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement (LGMA)-approved food safety metrics. These listening sessions will provide interested parties and signatories of either the California or Arizona LGMAs with an opportunity to comment on possible changes to the LGMA-recognized metrics and audit checklist.

On March 29, 2017, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) denied a petition that sought to ban chlorpyrifos, a pesticide crucial to U.S. agriculture. Instead, EPA will focus its attention on updating and revising its human health assessment for chlorpyrifos under the standard procedures of the ongoing registration review process. The assessment is scheduled for completion on October 1, 2022, in order to support future decision-making.
