At an event at the Microsoft campus in Fargo, a new partnership was announced for the Grand Farm. Microsoft President Brad Smith touted this ag innovation center that introduces the farm of the future. “When we get excited about something; we put our energy behind it, we put our name behind it and we put our money into it,” said Smith. “We will spend $1.5 million as a company to bring Grand Farm to life.” Microsoft is partnering with Emerging Prairie for this project which was described as the intersection of agriculture and technology. Autonomous tractors, drones and artificial intelligence are all part of the Grand Farm vision. North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum, who once worked with Smith at Microsoft, was part of the Grand Farm announcement.
