Purpose: To assess interest in a regional approach to establish a North Bay AgTech Innovation Hub.
Context: The introduction of advanced technologies into our local agriculture and natural resource management communities could deliver value to regional farming and natural resource management operations, contribute innovations to increase economic diversification and climate resiliency, and yield exportable products and services to other markets. Application of these technologies could span efficiency, quality, yields, land and natural resource management, water management, human resources, and others yet to be seen.
