The 96th Western Growers Annual Meeting will be held from Nov. 2-5, 2022 in Las Vegas, and while the event will have plenty of opportunities for networking and entertainment, it will also host Featured Sessions to help educate members on critical issues facing our industry.

The first Featured Session, “When Family Farms Give Way to Outsiders,” will be held on Nov. 3 at 2:30 p.m.-  4 p.m.

As part of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Leafy Greens STEC Action Plan, the agency will conduct on-farm surveillance sampling of leafy greens grown in the Salinas Valley region during FY 2022-23. Under this assignment, samples only will be collected from farms and/or ranches identified by traceback investigations in recent years as being potentially associated with an outbreak in which lettuce or leafy greens were identified as the likely or suspect food vehicle.
