Canadian Demo DayOn Aug. 22, in Ottawa, Ontario, AEM held its second agricultural equipment demo day for Canadian regulators. This year’s demo was held on a 5G research farm owned by the City of Ottawa.

Over 50 policymakers from Agriculture Canada and the Pest Management Regulatory Agency came out to see equipment and speak with experts from Case IH, John Deere, New Holland and Trimble on the latest in guidance systems, data management, spray drift control and modern harvesting.

“AEM is a leader in the sustainability conversation,” said AEM Senior Director of Regulatory Affairs and Ag Policy Nick Tindall. “We are proud to represent so many member companies that put sustainability at the forefront of their design and manufacturing process. Not only does this benefit the environment, but it also helps farmers be more efficient with their time and resources.”

AEM partnered with the Grain Farmers of Ontario and the Canadian Seed Trade Association to provide the grower perspective and information on the importance of seed treatments.

These demo days are part of AEM’s overall advocacy efforts to educate policymakers about the importance of sound agriculture policy.
