Stepping Over The Edge
In 2005, Wade Barnes and Curtis MacKinnon decided to take an idea and take a chance at turning it into a business.   Variable Rate Technology had been around for over a decade, but was not utilized on many acres in Canada as the viability of the concept had not been proven.  Wade and Curtis saw the value of VRT, which uses technology such as satellite remote sensed imagery to map out the variability within a field and adjust the rates of fertilizer across the field.  

With the drive, vision, and a chemistry that seemed to be unstoppable, Farmers Edge has grown from a two person company in 2005 with 2000 acres of VRT business to a company with over 80 full and part time staff.  To date hundreds of growers have seen the value in VRT, with over 3.5 million acres delivered since 2005.  The company now operates a Winnipeg based full service agricultural laboratory and has business operations in Canada, USA, Eastern Europe, and South America.
