University of Guelph researchers want to hear from farmers about their use of precision agriculture technologies.
A research team of University of Guelph graduate students in the Geography, Environment and Geomatics Department is conducting the survey. The lead researcher is master’s candidate Sarah Marquis and the lead academic advisory is Evan Fraser.
Results will be used in a master’s thesis and various PhD theses looking at the use of technology in agriculture.
The survey takes about 30 minutes and looks at use of precision agriculture technology, digital agriculture data and understanding of rights relating to digital agriculture data.
Some participants will be invited to participate in a follow-up interview.
The research is being conducted because the researchers say there’s little research on Canadian farmers’ use of precision agriculture technology and its impacts. The aim is to have the surveys completed by Oct. 31.
