The citrus industry is valued at $3.3 billion in the United States, yet some of the industry’s biggest challenges arise from the country’s citrus groves. Citrus pests and diseases such as HLB and citrus blight are continually plaguing the citrus industry. Water irrigation is a continued issue, as citrus groves need an abundance of water to survive, and the water resource demands are rising.
Above this, environmental regulations, labor requirements, compliance training and asian citrus psyllid control measures are heavily affecting California growers, as the cost of these regulations will reach $203 million statewide With the retailer price of citrus rising and consumers looking towards lower-priced fruit, the citrus industry could be driven out of state.
The Ag 4.0 workshop will explore biotech practices within citrus, the rising barriers to GMOs, and the importance of sustainability vs. pesticides. Attendees will discuss the benefits of utilizing tech to maximize ROI, ensuring crop health and reducing loss, whilst also saving water. Join farmers, agtech companies, suppliers and processors alike as we work on reaching a resolution for global agriculture that allows for bold innovation to address global food security.

As technology investments increase in agriculture space, so does the data that is produced by these investments. Leaning now to manage and leverage that data is going to be critical in getting the desired return on the investments made.

Agriculture 4.0 offers a great opportunity to explore the possibilities of using new technologies to build upon our basic knowledge of agricultural crops. As the world changes and populations continue to grow, we need every technology, old and new, to help secure sustainable, safe, reliable, and abundant food supplies.
Director of the University of California, Agricultural and Natural Resources
I am very much looking forward to disseminating and sharing ideas with fellow members of the industry in November. I am supremely grateful to be asked to be a part of AG4.0 as we reach this new frontier in agriculture.
We cannot wait to take part in Agriculture 4.0 along with other supply chain representatives. As growers we are always excited to discuss security, sustainability, and stability efforts from food to fork with others in our industry. Together, with collaborative efforts, we will effectively be able to feed, fuel and provide fiber for the world.
