  • Date :  February 23, 2022
  • Time : 12:00 pm - 01:00 pm

Science and innovation have been critical to helping the world combat the global health crisis. It’s also driving major advances in the way we grow food, helping to make food more sustainable, nutritious and affordable. Whether it’s genetically engineered or gene edited crops that are more resilient to climate change or safe and effective pesticides that protect vulnerable crops from destruction, farmers need access to a full suite of tools to help them feed Canadians and the world. And at the end of the day, technology on the farm benefits consumers who have year-round access to a wide variety of safe, healthy and sustainably grown foods.
