Minnesota Corn Growers Association
With more than 6,500 members, the Minnesota Corn Growers Association is one of the largest grassroots farm organizations in the United States. Working in close partnership with the Minnesota Corn Research & Promotion Council, MCGA identifies and promotes opportunities for Minnesota’s 24,000 corn farmers while building connections with the non-farming public. We accomplish this by investing in third-party research that focuses on water quality and soil health, targeted consumer outreach, developing new uses for corn and working to add value to every bushel of corn grown in Minnesota.
#DigitAg, the Digital Agriculture Convergence Laboratory, is one of 10 French Convergence Institutes financed by the Investissements d'Avenir (Investment for the Future) program. #DigitAg conducts interdisciplinary research between agronomic sciences, engineering sciences (computer science, mathematics, electronics, physics, etc.) and social and management sciences (economics, sociology, business management), bringing together more than 700 experts in these fields to produce the scientific and pedagogic bases necessary to achieve the harmonious deployment of digital agriculture in France, Europe and the Global South. #DigitAg gathers a consortium of 16 public and private partners and 29 research units and is backed by €9.9M of support from the French Government over 8 years (2016-2024).
At the heart of our research activities are around 100 doctoral students who have been or will be recruited to boost knowledge creation in digital agriculture. The extension and tanslation of innovations resulting from their research will be fast-tracked via support from the company AxLR. #DigitAg also provides initial and ongoing training with the creation of a Graduate School, a multidisciplinary grouping of 20 Masters and Specialised Masters, that trains students to be able to embark on careers in digital agriculture. The originality of the Graduate School lies in four new interdisciplinary Masters courses supported by a hands-on digital agriculture learning site and eight member companies of #DigitAg that have committed to the training and hosting of students. The innovations resulting from our research will benefit from support from the company AxLR.
