Why AgTech

AgTech is innovation that builds upon our best agricultural practices, while using every next-frontier technology available to us. Escondido’s history of agriculture meets the growing state demand for technology improvements; we’re excited to be a hub of connectivity at this pivotal moment in agriculture’s development.


Why Now

Federal innovation grants along with unprecedented statewide need in improvements for workers, water, climate, and how we manage our resources makes this a peak time for development in agriculture.


What Can I Expect?

Hackathons bring together cross-sections of entrepreneurs, scientists, investors, and inventors. AgTech ranges from science of plants/crops and livestock, soil improvement, sensor development, through AI and ag-related cybersecurity. You’ll be in the front row of innovation in AgTech at this event.
