Thu, 5, September, 2019 by Food from Thought

The University of Guelph is inviting Canadian crop farmers to participate in a research project on precision agriculture. The lead researcher is master’s candidate Sarah Marquis and the lead academic advisor for the study is Dr. Evan Fraser.

The research looks at precision ag and how farmers use and relate to these technologies. Data collection includes a survey detailing farmer use of precision agriculture technology, farmer use of digital agricultural data, and farmers’ understanding of their rights to digital agricultural data. Eligible participants are invited to complete the survey and learn more about the project, which is funded in part by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund via Food from Thought.
