Connectivity and Precision Agriculture in SW Ontario Crop Farming 

GUELPH, ONTARIO (October 18, 2016) – Researchers at the Ontario Agricultural College in the Regional and Rural Broadband (R2B2) project are working 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 is to analyze the extent to which access to high-speed internet, or lack thereof, serves as an enabler/barrier to the adoption of various PA applications. 

The study is funded by Agriculture and Agri-food Canada’s (AAFC) Innovation and Growth Policy Division (IGPD).

Updates on this project will be posted on*R2B2project.ca*site.
