In a news release this week they said this will provide technology-based solutions to support the ongoing transformation of Canada’s agriculture industry.

Just when you thought that future agriculture is all about getting into the dirt, this product announcement emphasizes the big-business side of agriculture.

Selling grain crops:

Between crop contracts, ever-changing market conditions, and the advice farmers get at their local elevator, the process of selling crops and finding and comparing the best grain prices can be overwhelming.
