Lethbridge joins Pan-Canadian Smart Farm Network


Lethbridge College has officially joined the Pan-Canadian Smart Farm Network, a collaborative effort to enhance efficiency, sustainability, and resilience in Canada’s agricultural sector. The Network was first launched in 2021 by Olds College of Agriculture and Technology. Contributions from Lethbridge will expand the Network’s activities into southern Alberta and Canada’s Premier Food Corridor. “The network’s continued expansion across different agricultural zones and land bases brings more depth to the projects and technology evaluations which benefit farmers and developers,” said Olds VP of Research Dr Joy Agnew. “Lethbridge College brings expertise in irrigated crop production, gain storage management, and horticulture production, among other things.”
