Thank you to all of the attendees who made our first AgPhD as exhibitors a great experience.

Today we had the opportunity to speak about new and emerging technologies, and how they might impact our farms in the next 3-7 years. In case you missed any of the companies or apps that we referenced, you can check out the links below.

If you have another tech tool that has been valuable to your farming operation, we would love to hear about it.

Ag In Motion - Innovation

This is our first time attending Ag in Motion, just outside of Saskatoon, SK. The show is in its fifth year and has a heavy emphasis on field scale trials and demonstrations. The tag line SEE technology, TOUCH innovation, BE Empowered is certainly fitting for this event!

The Ag in Motion Innovations Program recognizes companies that advance agriculture in four areas:

  • Plant and Soil Science

  • Animal and Livestock

  • Agriculture Equipment

  • Agribusiness Services

In addition, six international ag-tech companies are part of the 2019 show, as Canadian farmers attract the attention of worldwide developers and innovators. Combine this with the release of new seed varieties (two Canterra wheat varieties), companies making new product announcements (autonomous dry spinner spreader) and showing off their products and services in unique ways (virtual reality at the AGI booth) and there is no shortage of innovation.

One day is not enough time for this show!
