The First Sixteen, a new biweekly podcast series that digs into leading edge topics in Canadian agriculture and food

If you’re curious about the name, the podcast is named after the leading 16 percent of innovation adopters in sociologist Everett Rogers’ theory of innovation diffusion. Through this name, AAFC’s podcast celebrates the innovators (2.5%) and early adopters (13.5%) of innovative practices in agriculture.

New episodes will be released every two weeks and will feature diverse topics in agricultural innovation. For farmers and foodies alike—those who like to keep it fresh and love new ideas—this podcast is for you!
