Sacramento, CA - It is no secret that California is an agricultural powerhouse with the ability to grow over 400 different commodities valued at more than $50 billion. But with droughts, water restraints, labor shortages, wildfires and one of the most complex regulatory systems in the country, how long can the nation's top agricultural producer remain competitive?

"California farmers and ranchers are some of the toughest, most innovative people we know, and they have historically been able to adapt," said Agri-Pulse Editor Sara Wyant. "But we are hearing more folks express concerns about having so many 'cards' stacked against them. Growers hear from people who say they want local food, yet there are more and more incentives to move out of state or to other countries."

Agri-Pulse will discuss these challenges at this year's Food & Agriculture Policy Summit. This event will focus not only on assessing the current 'state of play,' but allow you to hear from state lawmakers, industry experts, growers, farmers and ranchers who are trying to collaborate, innovate and make climate-smart investments. We'll hear from a San-Francisco-based venture capitalist about where he's willing to invest, a grower who has already moved some of his company's production to Mexico, a panel of beginning farmers and some of the industry's leading CEOs - just to name a few.

The event will offer a full-day of speeches and panel discussions, with both in-person and virtual attendance options at the Sheraton Grande Sacramento on July 12, 2021. Agri-Pulse is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, and the event will follow all state and local directives and health measures. Review the COVID-19 guidelines for the Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel.
