Leveraging Silicon Valley Solutions for our Food System
Most people know about Silicon Valley, but how many people realize that Silicon Valley’s backyard is the largest Agricultural production region
in the US producing about $50 billion in cash receipts per year?
In total there are over 400 ag products grown commercially in California with over a dozen of those products grown solely in California. Nearly a third of what Americans consume as food is grown in California. But, with the state’s water and soil systems at risk exacerbated by global climate change, the future of this vast agricultural system is presented with significant risks and opportunities. This forum seeks to show how technology and investment from Silicon Valley can be leveraged to help address these issues and harness those opportunities moving forward.
