VANCOUVER, BC - This morning, the Government of Canada announced that the BC-Led Digital Technology Supercluster is a funding recipient of the Innovation Supercluster Initiative.
“Today’s announcement is an acknowledgement of the great work BC businesses are doing in the digital technology sector and will encourage continued collaboration. For Terramera, it is an opportunity to advance our sustainable agriculture technologies to be truly transformational. Imagine a world where we increase global agriculture yields by over 20% without using harmful chemical pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. This funding affirms innovation and the type of thinking that could change the industry, but also the world,” said Terramera Founder and CEO, Karn Manhas.
Terramera continues to push the envelope in high-performing regenerative agricultural advancements. Terramera uses technology to unlock the power in nature so we can live healthier, make clean food affordable and feed the world. The funding received from the Innovative Supercluster Initiative supports Terramera’s important work and mission, as well as allows us to continue innovating to build Canada’s sustainable agriculture economy and ensure we leave the world better than we found it.
