Western Growers kicked off its 93rd Annual Meeting last night with a welcome reception held at JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa’s Rockwood Grill Patio.
This year’s Annual Meeting brings together nearly 500 agricultural leaders to innovate and promote new ideas to help the fresh produce industry thrive. The three-day meeting will feature a series of educational workshops covering topics such as genomics, agricultural technology and changing mindsets to influence results. Attendees will also hear from keynote speakers including Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano, Robert O’Neill and Jon Dorenbos.
Western Growers’ Golf Tournament was also held yesterday morning. The winners of the tournament will be announced tonight during the Party with the Partners Reception. Last night’s welcome reception was sponsored by Nutrien Ag Solutions, Prudential Agriculture Investments, CHEP & IFCO and Heliae.
