Farm Credit Canada is donating $200,000 over the next four years for a “data lab” at Olds College’s Smart Farm.

The lab is a technologically advanced workspace, available for students, instructors, and industry partners “to meet, collaborate and learn,” the college said in a news release.

“The AgExpert Data Lab brings together data from our agriculture operation, allowing us to analyze and demonstrate innovative technology and practices for entrepreneurs, companies and producers and for student learning,” said college president Stuart Cullum.

The Smart Farm uses cutting-edge technology to provide a hands-on learning environment for students and an opportunity for industry to develop, integrate, and test new ag technology and practices.
