2020 Event Postponed

Eager as we were to join with you next week in presenting the Seventh Annual Salinas Valley Ag Tech Summit, the Western Growers Association and Hartnell College have decided to postpone this year’s dynamic program to a future time, still to be determined.

As all Americans and people around the world face the challenge posed by the coronavirus COVID-19, the safety of the summit’s participants must of course be our highest priority. We will immediately begin consulting on alternative dates when we hopefully will have moved past this immediate public health crisis.

Thank you again, and we will reach out to all of you with more information as we move ahead with our plans.

Join us March 17-18, 2020 for the
