The western United States is currently in the fourth year of one of the worst droughts in recent history; the situation is taking a major toll on farmers. This has led to a significant need for new enabling technologies that not only understand the constraints faced by today's framers, but also aids in ensuring an environmentally and economically sustainable future.

Join Frost & Sullivan in this upcoming GIL Webcast, highlighting key technological developments in the field of agriculture and associated technologies that will transform the future of the industry. Participants will also receive the opportunity to discuss the main challenges facing farmers, such as depleting water supplies, with a focus on California agriculture.

Reasons to attend this webinar:

  • To learn about disruptive technologies in agriculture water management
  • To receive an update on the current state of agriculture in California and the world
  • To engage in an interactive Q&A session with leading technology and market experts from Frost & Sullivan

Thought leader insights:

"In 2015 farms used 40 percent of California's water supply and only 3 out of 10 acres of irrigated farmland received no surface water supply. Clearly, this drought has led to a significant unmet need for new enabling technologies that not only understand the constraints faced by today's California farmers, but also ensures future sustainability," said Frost & Sullivan Global Program Manager Christopher Shanahan. "California has gone through drought cycles before, but the toll taken by the current multi-year phenomenon has been devastating."
