Vice President Environmental Science and Resources

Braga Fresh

Eric Morgan is Vice President of Environmental Science and Resources at Braga Fresh. Prior to this role, Eric was a Pest Control Advisor and manager for Valley Farm Applications.

In 2009, he founded Soil Health Lab to help growers reduce fertilizer inputs daily, based on real-time laboratory results and his professional experience. Still in operation today, this soil lab provides same-day analysis of soil and water for nitrate, ammonium, and pH levels for cool season vegetable growers in California’s Salinas and Imperial Valleys.

In 1928, the Braga family started farming Salinas Valley. Today the third generation continues the family values of sustainable farming.  Now vertically integrated, Braga Fresh combines innovation with tradition to grow, harvest, and process fresh vegetables and leafy greens through the Josie’s Organics brand. With Eric’s leadership, Braga Fresh sets aside 10% of farmland to beneficial habitat and has the goal of being carbon neutral by 2025.
