Sara Matzger, iTradeNetworks’s solutions director, will be presenting on the various ways growers can help their own procurement processes during this Thursday’s Innovating in Challenging Times webinar. From diversifying one's buyer portfolio in order to have more resilience during industry turmoil to optimizing freight options in order to cut down on costs, this information is vital for growers during times like the one we’re currently living in.

Western Growers recently hosted a 5-part webinar series on topics surrounding Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS), which occurred once a month from January to May of 2020. The series started by exploring the basics of WGS and how this tool applies to food safety management. In later months, the topics evolved into sequencing protocols, case studies, regulatory applications and novel applications of the next generation of whole-genome sequencing such as metagenomics.
