Farming Smarter

we change the way people farm

We drive innovation at the farm level through agronomic testing, scientific knowledge and the right connections for them to succeed.

a trusted driver of innovation

Building and Inspiring a Culture of Innovation in Western Canadian Agriculture

True innovation isn’t just doing something in a new way or inventing something to change for the sake of change. It is doing something in a new way that brings benefit. For us, innovation is creativity and a belief that new ideas and new technologies can bring improvement, grounded in great science applied at a grassroots level.

We excel at innovation development and adoption and aim to help farmers best meet the changing realities of farming now and into the future.
