Seminar Overview

Washington’s Agribusiness is a key component of the state’s economic success.

  • Agriculture accounts for $51 billion (13%) of Washington’s yearly economic activity.
  • 160,000 Washington jobs are tied to agriculture (more than Microsoft and Boeing combined).
  • Washington state produces more than 300 different crops (second only to California).

There are unique regulations and legal issues faced by companies in the agriculture industry. Anyone involved in the agribusiness, be it growers, ranchers, distributors, service providers, or legal representatives, need to be up to speed on the latest issues to achieve their goals. Our panel of experts will provide updates on the impact of land use, environmental and water laws. They will address labor, visa, contractor, wage/hour issues and the importance of effective insurance coverage. We will also hear an overview of the state of the industry from two of Washington’s top regulators.
