Innovators to compete for $25,000 in Ag Innovations Competition

The 39th Agri-Trade Equipment Expo is set to open at Westerner Park in Red Deer from November 8th to 10th, 2023. Join us for three days of exploring the newest equipment, technology, innovation, and services in the global agriculture industry at North America's premier event.
Each year, Agri-Trade is pleased to host the Ag Innovations competition, showcasing the ingenuity and creativity of manufacturers and marketers of agricultural products and services. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the Ag Innovations program, and we can't wait to witness the ground-breaking ideas that the resilient agriculture industry will bring to the table.
Agri-Trade is thrilled to announce that $25,000 in cash prizes will be awarded once again. Five finalists will go head-to-head on stage, competing for the prestigious $20,000 grand prize at the Agri-Trade Equipment Expo this November.
In a perfect pitch style format, each finalist will be given five (5) minutes to present to a panel of judges for the chance to win the $20,000 grand prize cash award. Producers will also have the opportunity to participate in selecting the winner of the "Farmers Choice Award," who will receive $5,000.
"We anticipate a challenging task for the committee in choosing only five finalists from the pool of exceptional applicants," comments Craig Shaw, Ag Innovations Committee Chair. "The agricultural technology landscape continues to diversify each year, and the inventions and products keep getting better."
Krissy Fiddler, Agri-Trade Events Manager, expresses her enthusiasm, saying, "Our Ag Innovations competition focuses on solutions that have the potential to improve farm efficiency and overall operations. We are excited to see the top five companies compete for top honors and the grand prizes totalling $25,000."
