Today agricultural development and general farming are getting more cutting edge in their practices. Driven by potential government funding, these agricultural entrepreneurs are coming up with ways to increase output, improving efficiency, and minimize environmental impact.
Currently the Central Canadian provinces are leading the way in minimizing environmental impacts created by agricultural development. In these provinces, the agricultural community is coming up with ways to reduce or recycle waste, push energy saving processing techniques and hardware and adapting JIT (just in time) exporting ideas , minimizing the need for storage and increasing the freshness and healthiness of their produce.
In the Western provinces, agricultural companies are pushing new processing and shipping techniques. These new techniques rely on solar and wind energy to power and reduce industrial emission, leaving a positive impact on the environment while creating newly and highly skilled jobs to operate, maintain and manage these new techniques.
The discussed initiatives are a key to obtaining government funding, by showing that your agricultural business is providing positive impacts you will stand out from the rest of the applicants and be in the driver’s seat for obtaining the government funding you apply for (if applicable to your niche of course!)
