Canada Invests in Precision Agriculture

Canadian Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, Marie-Claude Bibeau, on 16th February 2022, announced up to $875,000 to Ukko Agro Inc. to support the development of an analytics platform to aid in better controlling insects and diseases in various crops. 

This innovative platform would provide decision-makers up to a week's heads up on field-level spray recommendations to proactively improve food production sustainability, increase field yield, and manage crop risks.

This investment by the government will help advance the technology that modern farm operations need to enhance efficiency and yields. By bringing more of this technology to the marketplace, agricultural technology companies ensure Canada remains a leader in the precision agriculture market. These new types of technology support farmers in their efforts to preserve valuable resources while providing more protection against diseases and insects.
