Canada has incredible potential to play a powerful role in the development of sustainable, natural solutions that can be applied to a broad range of sectors. High interest is coming from an increased desire globally for material and sustainable products that can fit into a circular economy.
Canada is home to a healthy and vibrant biological ecosystem with industry clusters – like institutions, universities, accelerators, innovative companies, and others – across the country. This ecosystem is positioned to provide significant economic and social benefits to Canada. Much of this growth will come through its agricultural sector which already embraces several sustainable measures (e.g. soil serving as a carbon sink) and is currently in the process of measuring and benchmarking Canada’s agri-food sustainability leadership through a National Agriculture Index.
In the 21st Century, science, technology and measurement play an increasingly important role in maximizing the value and economic contribution of Canada’s agricultural sector. By combining advanced technology with our traditional economic sectors, we create a strong underpinning for Canada’s agricultural sector, giving Canada the opportunity to be a leading force in the global economy.
Food production is a major global challenge. Producing enough nutritious food to feed the growing population in a manner that is economically, environmentally and socially sustainable has brought food security issues to the forefront of both political and social dialogue. This is creating high demand for innovative solutions to increase output while protecting soil, water and other resources.
This webinar will explore:
- Enhancing crop and plant health through innovation
- Biological pest management
- Soil inputs and plant nutrient use efficiency
- Climate change
- Agriculture as a carbon sink: Greenhouse gas sequestration and mitigation
- Soil and carbon measurement
- Precision agriculture innovation to manage soil inputs
