Current State of Pollinators Headlines Upcoming Tech Conference

On August 18 and 19, industry experts and the agtech community from across the globe will come together for the first-ever “The Flight of the Honeybees” virtual conference. During this two-day event, these experts will share their insight on the honeybee’s role in crop pollination, the latest technologies being deployed, biodiversity and our environment, and the importance of honeybees to our food supply – from farm to table.

Attendees will leave the conference with a better understanding of the innovations in artificial intelligence, robotics, sensors, and data that are being leveraged to address the important issue of the declining bee population. This event will also feature a pitch competition, bringing in startups from around the world whose disruptive technologies will help shape the future of our crops and our honeybees.

The Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology is a sponsor of the event, and we encourage all Western Growers members to tune in.
