The world is coming to Western Canada’s largest agricultural trade show.
Ag in Motion kicks off Tuesday and will be held 15 minutes northwest of Saskatoon, near Langham.
The event is attracting four international technology companies to showcase their agricultural innovations.
They’re a part of Saskatoon Regional Economic Development Authority’s (SREDA) first annual Agriculture Technology Harvest Program (HARVEST) competition.
The aim is to bring advancements in agriculture from all over the world to Saskatchewan farmers.
Four international companies were selected as winners of the 2017 HARVEST program, including Beef Improvement Opportunities from Ontario, PBD Biotech Ltd from the United Kingdom, PlantArcBio from Israel and Simpson Biotech Co. Ltd. from Taiwan.
Also new to this year’s trade show is the option for overnight RV parking on-site, however, there are no service will be available.
Ag in Motion features 100 acres of exhibit space and demonstration field with more than 100 exhibitors.
One of the new innovations available for viewing this week is GPS technology that will change the way farmers use equipment in the field.
A demonstration of the DOT Power Platform will take place every day at 2:45 p.m.
The technology can be either controlled or programmed to work a farmer’s field and even turn itself off if it goes off path.
