Canadian agriculture: evolution and innovation

For the modern operator, farming has evolved into an innovative career requiring knowledge of business management and technology, and more than ever agricultural sciences.

Driven by competition and aided by technology, the number of Canadian agricultural operations is decreasing as the operations become larger, more complex and capital intensive. Farms are taking advantage of innovation through marketing strategies, processes and product offerings in order to exploit new markets and cut costs.

This presentation will highlight the new ways Statistics Canada is integrating data from multiple sources in order to reduce the burden on farmers and to make information more relevant and timely for agro-businesses and analysts.
