What we are working on
The continued success of Canadian agriculture relies on its ability to focus on adopting technology, attracting a skilled and diverse labour force, and embracing sustainability, all of which supports profitability on the farm. The Enterprise Machine Intelligence and Learning Initiative (EMILI) is proud of the work we do to support this success. The projects highlighted on this page demonstrate some of the work we are doing in collaboration with industry and academic partners to accelerate the adoption of intelligent technologies and provide people with vital skills and training.
Innovation Farms powered by AgExpert is a 5,500-acre full-scale commercial seed farm that gives industry and academics access to leading-edge equipment, technology, and production practices.
Our annual digital agriculture conference connects experts across the digital agriculture industry. Keynotes and panel discussions provide valuable insights and connections for leaders in agri-food data and intelligent technologies.
As the need for a skilled workforce grows, we are working with industry and academic partners to create learning opportunities and increase awareness of the rewarding career paths in the agri-food industry.
We are committed to supporting start-ups and connecting agri-food entrepreneurs with resources, connections, and financial support to expand digital agriculture and attract new business to Manitoba.
Collaborate with us
Working together, we can increase integration of intelligent technologies, empower people with digital skills, support scale-ups to grow in the prairies, and accelerate Manitoba's growth as a leader in digital agriculture.
