Farmers Edge recently announced the addition of Osmington Inc., to its team of investors. The backing of Osmington Inc., marks the fourth investment partner to sign on with Farmers Edge within the last 12 months.
Named one of the Top 20 Fastest Growing Companies in Canada by PROFITguide.com, a Toronto-based business media company, Farmers Edge provides precision solutions to optimize crop inputs designed to help growers achieve higher yields, better quality and less environmental impact. The company’s technology includes variable rate technology, field centric weather monitoring, high-resolution satellite imagery, in-field telematics supported by a “boots on the ground” agronomy team.
“Although our company has invested in Canadian Farmland in Manitoba and Saskatchewan for the last few years, Farmers Edge is the first agricultural company that Osmington has invested in,” says Lawrence Zucker, President & CEO, Osmington Inc. “What we really like about Farmers Edge is that they are really good, smart people, who are passionate about what they are doing and are well positioned with their technology to be disruptive and potentially change how modern farming will occur. So that is why we made the investment. We like the values, we like the people and we certainly like what they are doing.”
