Highlights from day two of the farm show in Regina.

Day two of Canada’s Farm Show was all about innovation, and it did not disappoint!
Whether it was industry experts, or investors, or producers, every perspective joined in on the conversation about ag technology during Canada’s Farm Show. Each of these groups had a panel discussion during the day to discuss the implementation, development, and potential of ag tech.
Attendees had no shortage of great advice while tuning into the featured panels throughout the day. For example, Jocelyn Velestuk, who participated in the producer panel, encouraged farmers to leverage their farmer friends when implementing ag tech to gather their insights and mitigate risk.
On top of the panels, day two was home to multiple product launches including a soil monitoring system by ChrysaLabs and Crop Intelligence’s new real-time insights feature.
Day two ended with as much excitement as when began as 16 companies filled the stage for the Ag Tech Accelerator. Each ag-tech company pitched their innovative idea to investors in the audience and for the chance to win a $1,000 prize.
This year’s people’s choice winner as voted by the audience was T-Bin, the world's first mobile grain bin (Watch video below).
