Agri-Pulse West Summit Announces Speakers

Cindy Zimmerman

The agenda for the 2022 Agri-Pulse Food and Agriculture Issues Summit in Sacramento July 11 is shaping up to include some of California’s most prominent policy makers.

State Senator Melissa Hurtado, the youngest woman ever to be elected to the California State Senate and a representative of a new generation of Latina political leaders, will be the opening keynote speaker for the summit. California’s Secretary of Food and Agriculture Karen Ross, and Wade Crowfoot, Secretary of the California Natural Resources Agency, will also participate in the event which focuses on “Reinventing Resiliency for California Food and Agriculture.”

“If you are involved with food and agriculture, the concept of bouncing back from adversity and being resilient is likely not new. However, another year of western drought, supply chain disruptions, labor challenges and regulatory hurdles have prompted industry leaders to rethink how to adapt, transform and innovate in order to be resilient and stay in business,” said Sara Wyant, Agri-Pulse editor and founder. “Our Summit will focus on the top economic and policy issues impacting California farmers and food companies, including innovations to produce more crops with less water, opportunities to advance climate-smart practices, new strategies for job training and political engagement, and much more.”

The summit will offer participants a full day of presentations and panel discussions at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento in person on July 11, and virtual attendance options are also available. Find out more from Agri-Pulse.
