a couple of ideas for you
1.FYI We are running a multi-topic innovation competition and accelerator with Verizon again this year - one of the topics is SmartAg - PowerfulAnswers Award - the competition just concluded and now we're preparing the accelerator phase which is taking place in CA. There may be an opportunity next year along the same lines. 

2. Check out this as a good resource in this space

Subhash,
I'm the founder of an AgTech/FoodTech startup in California. There's definitely more and more interest from the investment scene towards AgTech.
The link Joy provided is definitely something to check-out. Roger Royse, who's behind the Silicon Valley AgTech accelerator is also the person who incorporated our company. He has a high focus on AgTech.
I would also check out www.agfunder.com. It's an investment platform for AgTech focused companies.
If you're a foreign startup looking for a good accelerator/incubator then I would also recommend to look at www.foundersspace.com. I went through their program and they're heavily engaged with foreign start-ups.
Finally I would also look at www.agtechinsight.com.
If you would like an introduction to any of them, just let me know.
Thanks,
Raf
