Subject: Farmers in San Benito County, Educators need five minutes of your time.

In San Benito County, we live one step away from Silicon Valley, the world’s hub for technology development, where high-tech workers find new ways to improve our connectivity, boost our economies, and improve our livelihoods.

Being California the state that feeds our nation, the agricultural sector is not left behind, and Silicon Valley’s innovators work hard to equip our agriculture with cutting-edge tools. However, technology by itself is not, and will not be enough to move our California’s agriculture to the next level in terms of productivity and environmental sustainability.

Even though technologies such as drones or automatized harvest machines have proved to increase our agricultural productivity, we know that adopting them is not an easy road. Not only high start-up costs, but also a lack of qualified labor with skills and knowledge on how to use these technologies effectively makes the

Subject: Calling Farmers in San Benito County!

The Agriculture, Water, and Environmental Technologies Program (AWET) in collaboration with Farm Bureaus, the Grower-shipper Association, and the San Benito Business Council has developed the Agricultural Workforce Development Survey to best support the San Benito County’s agricultural industry.
We need the participation of owners and managers working in companies engaged in agricultural activities within the San Benito County to answer a twelve-question Survey. Your support is key for California Community Colleges to identify what are the skills and knowledge required in your company in order to develop new curriculum among our Community Colleges. We have developed four new technical programs in water and wastewater treatment with Gavilan College and we want to expand to agriculture.
Please take five minutes to support our work as Community Colleges:

Subject: Make sure your farm or ranch is counted! - USDA Ag Census through June...

"NASS conducts a census of all agricultural operations every 5 years. We need to know about all types of agricultural operations of all sizes. Producers who are new to farming or did not receive a Census of Agriculture in 2012 still have time to receive the 2017 Census of Agriculture report form here, or by visiting http://www.agcensus.usda.gov and clicking ‘Make Sure You Are Counted’ through June. NASS defines a farm as any place from which $1,000 or more of agricultural products were produced and sold, or normally would have been sold, during the census year (2017)."
