Tomorrow, the Organic Produce Network and California Certified Organic Farmers will kick off the 2019 Organic Grower Summit (OGS) in Monterey, California. The summit brings organic growers, producers and processors together for two days of education, information and networking opportunities with their production supply chain and support service providers.

For the third year in a row, Western Growers (WG) will be heavily involved in OGS, serving as one of the conference’s key sponsors, alongside many other WG member companies. WG Senior Vice President of Science, Technology & Strategic Planning Hank Giclas and WG Senior Director of Strategic Initiatives & Communications Cory Lunde will be moderating the Real Talk with Ag Tech Disruption Leaders workshop. This session features numerous startups housed in the WG Center for Innovation & Technology including Trace Genomics, FarmWise, Hazel Technologies and Geovisual Analytics who will be speaking about cutting-edge ag technologies and upcoming trends in the agtech space.

Additionally, WG Executive Vice President Dave Puglia will serve as one of the panel members in The Last Harvest Documentary-Exclusive Showing session, discussing the ag labor shortage, immigration reform, H-2A and growing innovations. He will be joined by WG members from Driscoll’s, Ganaz and Tanimura & Antle.
