The Future of AgTech

The opportunity is huge for Canadian farmers and agribusinesses to produce a sustainable food supply to feed the world’s growing population. Canadian agri-food suppliers are employing digital technologies like big data, AI, smart sensors and the Internet of Things (IoT) to increase yields, quality and sustainability. The implementation of these technologies and innovations is quickly transforming a traditional sector into a high-tech one, and in many areas Alberta is leading the way.

In this live panel, TheFutureEconomy.ca and our partner Alberta Innovates are hosting three agriculture and agtech experts to discuss the opportunities and challenges for the Canadian agtech industry, and what it will take to make Canada a leader within it.

Moderated by Tim Penketh, Founder & CEO, TheFutureEconomy.ca
