Organic Grower Summit 2023 Announces “Unlocking the Value of AI on the Digital Farming Journey” Session; Rob Trice Comments



MONTEREY, CA - Marrying technology with agriculture is a delicate balance, but one line our industry walks well. As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to play a bigger role out in the fields, Organic Grower Summit (OGS) 2023 will be helping its members explore the advantages this technology has to offer in its latest ed session: “Unlocking the Value of AI on the Digital Farming Journey.”

Rob Trice, Founder, Better Food Ventures“I am really looking forward to speaking with Derek [Azevedo] and Megan [Nunes] as I’ve known both of them for years and appreciate that they are as comfortable discussing farming as much as technology,” said Rob Trice, Founder of Better Food Ventures and the moderator of OGS’ second ed session. “More valuable than that, however, I appreciate their unique ability to see past buzzwords and hype to keep focus on the value exchange technologies like AI must bring to a farming operation. To have produced at least two such cogent thinkers, there must be something special in the small Central Valley town of Gustine they both call home.”

Presented by Western Growers and Organic Produce Network (OPN), the sixth annual OGS 2023 is designed to provide information vital to organic growers and producers as well as an overview of the opportunities and challenges in the production of organic fresh food. Panelists Bowles Farming Executive Vice President Azevedo and Bountiful Chief Executive Officer Nunes will explore how AI and machine learning are providing data-driven insights and forecasts for specialty crop markets while discussing the pains and gains they have experienced as part of their extensive digital technology exploration.

As more companies are using AI to enhance their decision-making process, noted the release, growers are seeking to increase productivity and decrease waste amid higher costs. This 50-minute ed session will explore some of the technologies currently in use and what the future of AI in agriculture may look like.

Highlighting the two-day event is a sold-out trade show floor featuring soil amendment, ag technology, food safety, packaging, and equipment exhibitors who will have the opportunity to connect with organic field production staff, supply chain managers, pest management advisors, and food safety experts.

OGS 2023 will be held November 29–30 at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa in Monterey, California. Further details on the educational program, including session topics and speakers, will be released in the coming weeks and can be found here.
