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.

If you are a farm operator growing field crops in SW Ontario who is currently using, or not yet using, PA technologies you are invited to participate in the e-survey:

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.
