Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema toured JV Smith Farms in Yuma this week, hosted by Western Growers member and former Board Chair Vic Smith, CEO of JV Smith Companies, for a chance to see cutting-edge technologies used by farmers in the field.

In particular, the tour focused on technologies employed by JV Smith, including Carbon Robotics’ automated LaserWeeder and pesticide-spraying drones.

Sinema later held a roundtable with a number of WG members and Yuma agriculture community leaders to discuss issues they were facing.
