Western Growers has launched ‘Voices of the Valley,’ a new podcast where Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology Lead Dennis Donohue interviews leaders in agricultural technology and innovation. Voices of the Valley is now available on iTunes - Apple Podcasts and Google Play Music.

The Center works with farmers, entrepreneurs, educators and technologists to provide new solutions for today and tomorrow’s challenges—all of whom will be interviewed on the show. Each episode will explore what’s challenging and new in agricultural innovation.

On Tuesday, Western Growers held its second Grower Trail Network meeting at its Center for Innovation & Technology in Salinas, Calif. Nearly 30 growers and agtech start-up companies were in attendance, collaborating on the types of technologies possible for deployment in the field.  

The Grower Trail Network is an organized group of WG members who will be trialing and evaluating technology coming out of the Center.
