WGCIT Hosts First Colorado Grower Trial Network Event

The Western Growers Center for Innovation and Technology (Center) is pleased to announce its first Colorado-focused Grower Trial Network (GTN) event. Join Colorado produce growers and ag experts for a focused, two-day event to learn about specific opportunities for agtech in Colorado, share your solutions with an audience of growers and experts, and receive feedback on expanding into Colorado’s market.

The Colorado GTN event will begin December 8th with an overview of agtech opportunities in Colorado. Following a brief overview on Colorado specialty crop agriculture by experts in the state, Colorado growers will share their challenges and perspectives on opportunities for ag-tech. On December 10th, the event will resume with tech companies pitching their technology to Colorado growers. Attending companies will have 10 minutes each to present their technologies and solutions to Colorado growers and to receive their feedback.

With 32 million acres of farmland generating $7.5 billion in annual revenue, Colorado ranks in the Top 10 states for several fruit and vegetable crops. Colorado growers face many of the same challenges as growers in California, Arizona and New Mexico. These challenges represent expanded business opportunities for Center members.
