Farmers Edge Precision Consulting Inc.
This provider of precision agriculture and agronomics (read: technology and services that boost farmers’ yields) got its start when founder Wade Barnes—then a feed-plant employee—started exploring ways to reduce fertilizer use while improving land productivity. Farmers loved the concept. His employer, not so much; it was, after all, in the business of selling fertilizer. So, Barnes struck out on his own, and has since built a steady client base in Canada and in such foreign markets as Russia. Today, the firm keeps clients happy by issuing each a report card detailing the ROI delivered by its crop-boosting services.
