Year after year, the country’s most progressive growers attend Commodity Classic to learn about what’s new in the industry and connect with friends from near and far. Like most events this past year, the show was virtual. Although we certainly missed connecting with growers in person, we were grateful to engage with attendees online during Pivot Bio’s What’s New Session.

- Low cost requirements for production.
