While the concept of forestry may conger up images of bleak landscapes, scraped clean of all that made them natural, innovation by foresters has brought a greater focus to minimizing negative environment impacts of forestry and doing a better job of mimicking nature, in harvesting forests.
The agriculture sector has used innovation to create better seeds that rely on fewer crop inputs to ensure crops grow healthy and farming can be expanded into areas with poorer soil quality and less access to water.
There are many examples of innovation among the forestry and agriculture sectors in Ontario and we are looking forward to telling you all about them here.
We will share information here about the work the forestry and agriculture sectors are doing to innovate and evolve. Check back regularly.
