Water Challenges to the Agricultural Industry:
A Pro-Active Look at the Needs and Technology's Role

The session convened 14 of the planet’s largest fresh vegetable growers to discuss the agricultural water issues endemic to the Central Coast and the Salinas Valley, which produces 80% of the nation’s fresh vegetables, 15% of the world’s fresh vegetables and 70% of the nation’s berries.  A dozen technologists and entrepreneurs from agronomists to data managers listened and learned about the naturally occurring salts, the history of nitrate applications and the nature of water in different parts of the growing region.
