Farmers are encouraged to take part in an online survey on precision agriculture to help advance innovation in Canadian farming.

The survey will cover all components of precision agriculture, from simple GPS guidance to advanced ‘big data’ systems, looking at the tools being adopted in western Canada and identifying the barriers to technology and innovation that farmers face across the prairies.

Farmers are asked to include the various tools and technologies they currently use and are considering using in 2017.

Results from the survey will help promote the use of innovation and competitiveness in agriculture and inform the development of future policies and programs.

Summary results will be available in April 2017, and shared with western Canadian grower associations, industry stakeholders and farm media.
