Evan Fraser, Head of the University of Guelph's Food Institute was quoted: "We have to imagine a tractor driving through a field and the tractor itself senses where it is on the field and plants the right seed at the right time and gives it the right amount of fertilizer."
"We can create a Silicon Valley type vibe for food in our country where we can hopefully benefit in terms of innovation, jobs and hopefully sustainability," he said
