About the AgRobotics Working Group

 

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) and Haggerty Creek Ltd. established the AgRobotics Working Group in March 2021. This group is dedicated to conducting on-farm demonstrations, fostering networks, facilitating collaboration, and brainstorming current and future technology solutions.  The AgRobotics WG has been instrumental in bringing several new technologies to Ontario for testing and demonstration – Naio Orio, Naio Oz, FarmDroid, Nexus La Chevre or the Goat, Agrointelli Robotti and Korechi Innovations HCW etc. The Group meets weekly to discuss ideas, review new technologies, apply for funding opportunities and develop priorities for Ontario Agriculture. 

 

Members include representatives from all agriculture areas to obtain different perspectives and gain expert insight. This includes OMAFRA, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Municipal Governments, Haggerty AgRobotics, University of Guelph, McMaster University, University of Waterloo, Conestoga College, Ontario Fruit & Vegetable Growers Association (OFVGA), Fresh Vegetable Growers of Ontario (FVGO), Holland Marsh Growers Association (HMGA), Ontario Processing Vegetable Growers (OPVG), Innovative Farmers Association of Ontario (IFAO), Nortera, Korechi Innovations (Oshawa, Ontario), Nexus Robotics (Montreal Quebec), FarmDroid (Denmark), Naio Technologies (France) and Raven Industries (Canada and U.S) and many more. 

 

The overarching goal of the group is to assist both Canadian and international companies in validating their technologies within Ontario's diverse production systems.
