With harvest underway, there’s a reminder about farm safety.

Stats show that on average, 100 people die in Canadian agriculture every year, and 53 per cent of these deaths occurred while working alone.

Dow AgroSciences is partnering with STARS to help increase accident survival rates and improve emergency response times through SOLUS.

Solus is a smartphone app that tracks your location in real time and enables first responders to get help to you sooner in a medical emergency.

The app was developed to give peace of mind to farmers and their families who work, play or live in rural locations where help may be far away and difficult to connect with.
