VANCOUVER, BC – November 6, 2020 – Terramera, the global agtech leader fusing science, nature and artificial intelligence to transform how food is grown and the economics of agriculture, was announced the winner of the Excellence in Technology Innovation award at the 2020 Technology Impact Awards (TIAs). This award acknowledges companies whose technology clearly demonstrates next-level innovation and breakthrough solutions with significant market impact. The TIAs are the largest and longest-running technology awards program in B.C., celebrating the outstanding companies and individuals who have made a significant impact on the B.C. tech industry. This year’s theme was “Purpose.”

“We are honoured to win this award and have our foundational Actigate™ technology recognized as a breakthrough solution by the B.C. Technology Association,” said Karn Manhas, Terramera Founder and CEO. “The theme of this year’s TIAs resonates closely with Terramera. We are a purpose-driven company on a mission to make farming healthier, more sustainable and productive while also turning back the clock on climate change. We are proud to be a part of the B.C. tech community, which is leading the way in world-changing innovation.”

This award is the latest in a series of noteworthy developments for Terramera. Earlier this week, the company unveiled plans for its Global Centre for Regenerative Agriculture, a bold proposal bringing clean technology and farmers together to generate millions of jobs, create trillions in economic activity and help Canada reach net zero emissions ahead of schedule. The TIA award underscores Terramera’s innovative technology and game-changing capacity.
