Henry Dill '79 is the Grower-Shipper Association of Central California’s new chairman of the board. His focus will be to continue to make the membership and the industry aware that GSA is an incredible resource to assist them in navigating through the changing business climate facing the agriculture industry. With the challenges facing the industry, right now most notably water and labor, the GSA can offer insight on how to tackle many of these issues. In addition, Dill said “I think more focus can be given to encouraging the next generation that the farming industry is a great profession and can be hard work, but is very rewarding. The challenge is getting mentors to teach and get the students some hands-on experience in the form of internships, whether it be in production, food safety or sales.”
