Machine Learning

Growing the Digital Agriculture Industry

EMILI has been working closely with University of Winnipeg researchers since 2019 to develop innovative technologies such as a crop identification algorithm used to identify different varieties of plants. This algorithm was developed from the robust database of millions of labelled images of prairie crops and weeds imaged on Rutherford Farms, now home of Innovation Farms Powered by AgExpert.

Machine learning highlights

Advancements in technology, autonomous robotics, and machine learning are revolutionizing the agriculture industry.  The applications of these technologies for productivity, profitability and sustainability are immense. Intelligent technologies produce vast amounts of data to drive insights, decision-making, research and other value-added components. Insights derived from this data will increase crop yields, expedite crop breeding and optimize input application and other agricultural practices.
