Ontario Precision Agri-Food



building an open agri-food innovation platform for a positive economic and environmental impact for Ontario, for Canada.

OPAF is developing Ontario‚Äôs first comprehensive open agri-food data collection and innovation platform. It will equip Ontario farmers with decision support tools that enable them to use data generated on the farm for decision-making that leads to a more competitive cost structure, higher levels of revenue, and a reduced environmental footprint. 

In addition to the farmer-specific benefits, there will be substantive collective benefits for researchers, agricultural organizations, and government policy and program staff who will be empowered by the data to make better decisions regarding the allocation of resources and to undertake market development.
