Showcasing technology demonstrations

What we are working on

At Innovation Farms, EMILI demonstrates the productivity of commercialized technologies to empower farmers and others along the value chain to adopt and fully deploy digital tools.
IoT sensors and weather stations
Multi-partner activity

Weather stations, soil sensors, crop cameras, and insect monitoring stations set up across Innovation Farms allow us to remotely monitor crops to inform sustainable and profitable crop production decisions from field to field.
MyFarmConnect Integration
EMILI, AgExpert

Importing years of operation data from John Deere Operations Center into AgExpert Field unlocks a wealth of historical information, enabling EMILI to gain valuable insights and optimize farm management practices.
Digital agriculture advancement

Having access to MacDon’s high-performance harvesting equipment and related resources, technical knowledge, and strategic guidance increases EMILI’s capacity to test, validate, and demonstrate the powerful capacity of ag tech tools on Innovation Farms.
Imaging of prairie crops and weeds
EMILI, UWinnipeg

We are developing a publicly accessible database of labelled plant and weed images which will train machine learning models for Prairie-centric plant phenotyping, disease assessment, and weed management.
