Western Growers (WG) continues to lead in the advancement of agricultural technologies as the Ag Technology Sponsor at the inaugural Organic Grower Summit. The event, which starts tomorrow in Monterey, Calif., will bring together organic growers, producers and processors for two days of education, information and networking opportunities with the organic production supply chain and service providers.

As the tech sponsor, WG will be hosting “Tech Alley” where budding entrepreneurs will line the exhibit hall demonstrating their cutting-edge technologies that will significantly help farmers reduce issues faced on the farm. Nearly a dozen start-ups from the WG Center for Innovation & Technology (WGCIT) will be showcasing their inventions during the summit. In addition to the startups, numerous members and sponsors of the WGCIT will be in attendance.

Western Growers’ Hank Giclas will also be leading an education breakout session focusing on clean and renewable technology. As moderator, Giclas will be navigating the discussion between WGCIT residents Aaron Enz (Alta Energy), Robert McBride (Boost Biomes) and Sean Lyle (PowerGrow).
