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.

To date, episodes include interviews with Sean Duncan of Duncan Family Farms; Kevin France of SWIIM Systems; Colby Pereira of Costa Farms; Robert McBride of Boost Biomes; Drew Ketelsen of HMC Farms; and Patrick Zelaya of HeavyConnect. New episodes will be posted on Mondays.
