These products were 2018 Gold Standard Award winners of Canada’s Farm Progress Show (CFPS)Innovation program and were feature in an Innovation Guide that was distributed at last year’s show in Regina.
If you think your new agriculture innovation is worthy of entry into the program, the deadline for the 2019 Innovation Program is May 3, 2019, and you must be an exhibitor at the CFPS. Innovation program entries also need to be relevant and specifically related to the agriculture industry and should be about a novel or new concept or idea. The innovation needs to be viewable in the form of either a prototype or commercially produced product. This new concept needs to have been developed within the past two years. There are two types of entries, New Equipment Innovation and New Service Innovation.
“Canada’s Farm Progress Show is the country’s largest agricultural show, and one of the core elements is innovation that brings improvements and efficiency to agricultural production,” says Janeczko. “We have qualified buyers who attend the show each year specifically to see what’s new in the industry and to talk to manufacturers who are displaying their innovations.”
In addition to the seven Gold Standard winners, there were also 8 Sterling Standard Award winners for the 2018 Gold Standard Award that included AGCO Corporation’s Ideal™ Combine Harvester, the Bourgault Tillage BTT Weed Clipper, Duck Foot, Ultralift Power Tool, FarmTRX, Intelligent Ag Solutions Recon Spreadsense, Todd Hoffman & Shulte Industries DHX-600, and Healthy Homesteader Store it Safe.
