Digital Technology Supercluster invests in autonomous agriculture project

An autonomous agriculture project led by Verge Ag in collaboration with Simon Fraser University and other organizations has received over $10M in funding from industry and the Digital Technology Supercluster’s Technology Leadership Program. SFU researchers will be developing crop and soil health monitoring methods that will use remote sensing. This technology could be used by farmers to monitor crop and soil health across an entire farm, improving efficiency and profitability. “This project demonstrates the pivotal role research universities play in Canadian industry, in our food security and in sustainability,” said SFU VP, Research and International Dugan O’Neil. “[SFU is] grateful to the Digital Technology Supercluster for fostering these kinds of partnerships with leading industry players to help deliver value to Canadian food producers.” Digital Supercluster| SFU Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
