Manitoba Digital Agriculture Table Visits Innovation Farms

The best meetings are the ones where participants don’t want to leave, where collaborators from diverse sectors find themselves deep in conversation, sharing ideas and inspiration. This was the case on Wednesday, June 12 when EMILI brought members of the Manitoba Digital Agriculture Table to Innovation Farms for a meeting and tour. The morning kicked off with an overview of the work taking place to increase exposure to careers in the agriculture and agri-food sector and discussion around the importance of STEM programs, career panels, work-integrated learning and upskilling opportunities to attract learners from diverse backgrounds into digital agriculture careers. “The future of digital agriculture requires increased education and experiential learning opportunities, to develop vital competencies around technology application, employee readiness, and human skills,” said EMILI Skills and Talent Manager Rachel LeClair as the group of approximately 40 stakeholders from industry, acade

Canadian soil health at risk: Senate report

Soil health, extension services, and doing the right thing

Recently, the Standing Senate Committee on Agriculture and Forestry (AGFO) released their report to complete a study on the status of soil health in Canada. Critical Ground: Why Soil is Essential to Canada's Economic, Environmental, Human, and Social Health highlights the vital role of soil in various aspects of Canada's well-being. The 157-page report is full of recommendations, data, firsthand testimony from individuals across many sectors, international perspectives on soil legislation and policies, and much more.  Some of the recommendations of importance include calling on the federal government to collaborate with provinces and territories to enhance long-term funding for soil extension services, the implementation of tax credits for producers adopting innovative technologies that support soil health, ensuring early adopters are not left behind, and to enhance funding for public/private partnerships for research and development in agricultural and forestry soils.
