R2B2 partnered with Agriculture and Agri-food Canada (AAFC) to investigate Precision Agriculture Technology Adoption


Agriculture and Agri-food Canada’s (AAFC) Innovation and Growth Policy Division (IGPD) and the Regional and Rural Broadband (R2B2) project are working together on a study of how current and future connectivity influences the adoption of Precision Agriculture (PA) technologies among crop farmers in South Western Ontario.
The objective of the work is to analyze and determine the extent to which access to high-speed internet, or lack thereof, serves as an enabler/barrier to the adoption of various PA applications. We will also consider what impact, if any, expanded broadband coverage would have on the sector.
If you are a farm operator growing field crops in SW Ontario who is currently using, or not yet using, PA technologies we invite you to participate in the e-survey.
Updates on this project will be posted on R2B2project.ca site. If you need further information please contact hhambly@uoguelph.ca
