Agriculture in Ontario is on the rise according to Minister of Agriculture Jeff Leal.

Leal helped create the annual Agro-Innovation Awards, to celebrate agricultural success throughout Ontario.

He says Northern Ontario is playing a big role in that success, and even more specifically, Kapuskasing.

He says there are plenty of success stories in the north in agriculture.

The goal of the yearly innovation awards is to help further along the success these companies have already had.
