The second annual WGCIT Harris Ranch event was held as the New Year got started, January 6-7, 2020.  This is an annual gathering that includes WG Future Leaders, local WG Board Members, the WGCIT’s Tech Advisory group, participants in the Field Harvest Automation Acceleration Initiative, and Center Sponsors.  Roland Fumasi from Rabobank AgriFinance developed the keynote address on the state of, and future of, California agriculture.  John Harris, a former WG board member and owner of Harris Ranch, spoke to attendees during the dinner session of the gathering. The event concluded on the second day with participants breaking into teams to develop problem statements in four key areas:

  1. Produce Off the Ground
  2. Produce Off the Tree
  3. Produce Off the Vine
  4. AgTech Knowledge Hub

The event was sponsored by Rabobank and Reedley College. Photographs from the event can be viewed on the WGCIT Facebook page here.
