Western Growers Board of Directors has set a goal of feeding more people, with fewer inputs and leaving a smaller footprint on the world. With that in mind, WG is opening the Center for Innovation and Technology in Salinas, CA in order to accelerate technology and realize the Board's vision.
The agriculture industry has never faced so many challenges. Never before has our nation’s population been at once so distant from those who produce its food while at the same time so focused on food and the way it’s produced. Never before have farmers faced such intensive regulatory and marketplace demands even as key resources , such as water, become scarcer.
Technology and innovation will help answer each of these challenges.
