Bradenton Area Builds on Farming Past with Agriculture Technologies for the Future

The Bradenton Area has been home to generations of tomato farmers, stretching back nearly to the community’s founding. Today, the latest agriculture technologies are being created here to supply food for tables around the world.

Like other technology-based sectors, agriculture technology businesses find the Bradenton Area supplies a combination of workforce, available land and distribution infrastructure essential to delivering quality products to global markets.

Agriculture technologies have been identified by the Bradenton Area EDC, Manatee County Government and the State of Florida as a business sector to receive special preference in qualifying for performance-based incentives, rapid response permitting and workforce training grants.

The EDC’s collaborative partnerships provide customized and flexible training programs and access to funding sources for employee skills upgrades. A highly responsive workforce development ecosystem adapts to employers’ needs as evolving technologies place new demands on training your workforce.

We invite you to contact the EDC for a confidential conversation about your plans for locating or expanding your business in the Bradenton Area.
