Article Discusses Drought as Key Topic at UC Davis Climate and Agriculture Summit

March 30, 2017

This article shares what the FarmX team has heard and experienced firsthand in the Central Valley of California:

Worsening drought conditions, a boom in the water well drilling industry and complete water uncertainty going forward.

Quote:

“Now in its fourth year, the Climate and Agriculture Summit brought together farmers, ranchers, educators and policy makers to look for ways to deal with the drought, including conservation and management methods.

To learn about the drought’s ripple effects from those who experience them first-hand, a trio of ag representatives — Tom Willey, Joe Morris and Jutta Thoerner — shared their perspectives.

Willey and his wife, Denesse, own and operate T&D Willey Farms, a 75-acre certified organic operation in Madera County.

Willey, who started his farm in 1981, said in his region everyone is drilling wells because the Madera Irrigation District has no water to allocate to farmers. More than five years ago Willey drilled a new 500-foot well on his property, right before it started getting drier.

“It’s just a matter of time for all of us,” he said, referring to wells drying up.”

FarmX Selected to Imagine H20 Water Data Accelerator

January 9, 2016

 

 

FarmX has been selected to participate in the 7th annual Imagine H20 Accelerator:

“Imagine H2O, the water innovation accelerator, selected 10 startups to advance to its 7th annual Accelerator Program. The companies were chosen from a global field of more than 90 entrants to IH2O’s Water Data Challenge, which identified promising startups that deliver water-focused data and analytics solutions. The companies will join the organization’s growing portfolio of over 60 water technology companies, which represent over $1 in every $10 of early-stage investment in the water sector.

The program attracted entrants from 18 countries on five continents. The 10 finalists will be honored at an evening celebration onMarch 16 in San Francisco, where Imagine H2O will introduce the Challenge’s overall winner.

“Once again, Imagine H2O attracted an extraordinary field of startups tackling the global water challenge,” said Debra Coy, partner at XPV Water Partners. “I am pleased that these 10 companies will benefit from accessing the organization’s connections in the water industry and Silicon Valley.”

Imagine H2O provides a proven path-to-market for early stage water companies, with participants benefitting from mentorship and advice from industry leaders, visibility in the marketplace, introductions to investors and connections to a global network of companies and utilities committed to deploying water technology.
