If you don’t measure it, how can you manage it?
Understanding your Cost of Production and identifying opportunities to become more efficient is as important for farmers today as for any other business CEO. Vantage Canada is here to help Canadian farmers connect the dots between Precision Ag Technology and Data Management
In challenging economic environments, being efficient becomes even more crucial. Savvy farmers know the value of using precision ag technologies, have a keen understanding of their input costs, and know that by leveraging information they collect they can find ways to improve further. Every operation is different, and the only way to know what’s best for your farm is to measure the results on your farm.
At Vantage Canada, this is our passion. We work with farmers to identify their precision ag technology needs, and offer solutions that fit their budgets that will make them more efficient, more productive, and ultimately more profitable. Our software and data management team deliver programs that let farmers understand their cost of production as well as profitability by field, crop, and variety. We empower Canadian farmers by getting valuable farm data in their hands in a way that’s fast, simple, and easy to understand. Then, we help them use this data to make quick in-season decisions that save them time and money.

How would you describe the ‘Concierge’ services Vantage Canada is offering?
Concierge services are a complete offering of services that ensure the success of the grower from data acquisition to analysis. The grower no longer needs to worry about the integration of field files into the software. Instead they can focus on the outcome and how to best use the information to improve the efficiency of the farm.
Why is this needed in the market today?
The market is changing rapidly and with that comes a greater understanding of how the food we consume is produced. With all of these issues, growers need to start utilizing tools that let them leverage their data to make informed, profitable decisions.
The challenge farmers face in realizing the true promise of precision ag is that until now, the many tools and technologies are hard to integrate. Vantage Canada will help growers connect them into one streamlined precision ag system that drives profitable decisions across the entire farm operation in real time.
What are the greatest challenges farmers encounter today when it comes to incorporating more precision ag into their operations?
Effort to properly manage the data from start to finish. Typically, this is left unattended and the data becomes meaningless or worse case, lost. Their data isn’t necessarily telling them if all of their fields are profitable. Cost overruns are a function of workers mistakes, which can easily be rectified through Work Orders. Farms are complex, growers need to know all facets of their operation to work to minimize costs for maximum profitability. And they need a partner to help fit all the pieces together so they can focus on running the farm.

Why did your team choose to align with Trimble as your partner in providing these products and services?
After careful analysis, Trimble Ag software is the best in the marketplace. It is the best kept secret. We aim to change that belief. Growers require a Farm Information Model (FIM) that they can continually develop and implement.
What sets Trimble and Vantage Canada above its competitors in the precision farming space?
Domain knowledge is the key. Iron dealers focus on the sale and not the technology behind precision data acquisition process. This is the key as you can place technology on virtually any piece of iron, but it’s the data that comes from it that has the value.
There is also the manner in which you use it will determine the ROI of the report card.
