U.S. Senator McSally, WG Leadership to Headline Water Panel in Arizona

Western Growers, in partnership with Phoenix Business Journal, is hosting a special event on May 29 where U.S. Senator Martha McSally and members of the Arizona agricultural industry will discuss challenges surrounding Arizona’s water supply and quality. The event will also cover emerging precision agricultural technologies that aim to solve those issues.

Senator McSally, a member of the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, will start the event with a keynote address on the state of water in Arizona. The keynote will be followed by a fireside chat where WG board members, Robby Barkley (president/CEO at Barkley Ag Enterprises) and Will Rousseau (partner at Rousseau Farming Company); Dave Puglia (executive vice president at WG); and Sandy Fabritz (director of water strategy at Freeport McMoRan), will discuss everything from water to food safety to agricultural technology. They will be joined by Dennis Donohue, director of the WG Center for Innovation & Technology, who will guide the discussion as moderator. Both the keynote address and fireside chat will be followed by a Q&A session.
