Farmers Edge, an independent precision agriculture consulting firm, has been ranked as the 11th fastest-growing company in Canada byPROFITmagazine. The magazine annually ranks the top 200 fastest-growing companies on the basis of five-year revenue growth.
“We are extremely dedicated to the Canadian agriculture industry and we feel this designation will help demonstrate that to producers,” says Wade Barnes, president and CEO of Farmers Edge, which is based in Pilot Mound. “We will continue to provide growers and producers with the tools they need to operate a more profitable farm, with higher yields and higher returns.”
Barnes and co-founder Curtis MacKinnon tapped into a growing demand for agrology consulting services and improvements in precision farming technology and now have more than 30 reps across the Prairies. The duo was also named Business Development Canada’s Young Entrepreneurs of the Year for Manitoba in 2009.
