Editor’s Note: Amy Wu covers agriculture and agtech from the Salinas Valley. She was recently awarded a grant from the International Center for Journalists, supported by S&P Global, to report on the accomplishments and tribulations of being a minority woman entrepreneur in the US. Her work on women in agtech can be found at Farms to Incubators.
