In 2014, California voters passed Proposition 1 (Prop 1), a $7.545 billion statewide ballot initiative also known as the Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014. While many people may think of Prop 1 as solely a mechanism for funding water supply infrastructure projects such as surface and groundwater storage, the general obligation bonds can also be applied to fund ecosystems and watershed protection and restoration projects.

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.

Despite the recent drought-fueled criticisms of agricultural water use in the Golden State, the reality is California farmers are extremely efficient managers of this vital resource. Compared to 50 years ago, California farmers grow 43 percent more food using the same amount of water. Farmers are the original conservationists and constantly seek new ways to apply smart thinking to how they use water.
