California Secretary of Food and Agriculture Karen Ross recognized PureSense on behalf of the California State Assembly Committee on the Economy on July 21, 2011, at the conference organized by Grow-California. According to Grow-California CEO, Jon C. Gregory, 'The 2011 Agriculture 'Game Changers' represent the 'best of the best' in California and have made a tremendous impact on the agriculture industry through their innovations, and by virtue of that, have had a critical and positive impact on California's economy.'

'We strive to ensure we are providing the most innovative and usable solutions to growers and we feel privileged to be among those recognized for helping propel agriculture into a more sustainable future.'
