About Us

Our technology supports sustainable practices, helps to automate farm equipment and is positively impacting the way farmers manage their infield operations.

Our Purpose

We are a forward thinking organization focused on changing the way farmers approach their infield operations. How are we doing this? By developing precision ag tools that are accelerating the transition from traditional to autonomous farming.

Why our Solution Works

Our approach to farm logistics starts with path planning and the automation of equipment in the field. We’ve proven that by using our software, optimizing machine paths and operational decisions influences the overall cost of each activity and action taken in the field. When equipment is at the right place, at the right time it becomes more efficient and effective; significantly reducing farmer’s operating costs during every stage of production.

Operational Planning

Get more done in less time. Reduce confusion or frustration in the field. Run a seamless in-field operation.

Compaction and Erosion

Balance the impact of soil compaction caused by wheel traffic

Equipment Efficiency

Reduce fuel, labour and wear and tear cost associated with inefficient movement and coordination of equipment fleet.

Historical Data Analysis

Make operational improvements by comparing and optimizing path plans for each farming cycle and season.

Optimize Input

Reduce over application of fertilizer or seed from overlaps

Environmental Conditions

Finish ahead of schedule to avoid unforeseeable weather conditions.

In addition to having full control over in-field operations, our solution also allows farmers to enhance their operation without any additional hardware – it’s as simple as pushing guidance lines directly to OEM platforms.

Our Story
Verge was born after acquiring First Pass; an integrated complex computational algorithm from Coutt’s Agro (a 100,000 acres farming operation based in Kindersley, SK). Acquiring First Pass was only the beginning technical journey and provided us the ability to improve challenges related to operational planning.

Next, we recruited an exceptional team made up of rocket scientists, innovative entrepreneurs, farmers and dealmakers to work on developing the world’s first optimized farm logistics software centralized around path planning and the automation of in-field operational decision making.

The concept of developing an interactive tool that equips growers to create optimal path plans was our first step towards innovating and accelerating traditional farming. While most companies have been focused on increasing production; we have always been obsessed with increasing productivity across the entire farm.

We pride ourselves on working with local growers and large operations around the world to help improve their unique and diverse farm operations. Our customer’s success stories are what keep us motivated and continuously innovating.

TESTIMONIAL

Jamie Charlton

Verge is changing the landscape of agriculture in the area of operational movement and path planning as a real economic savings. I enjoy connecting with growers from different countries and regions about their diverse farm operations and take pride in supporting them through each step of the adoption and implementation process. The most rewarding part is when a customer sees the positive results from trusting the change and its impact on their overall operation.

The thing I enjoy most at Verge is the optimism within the team. Internally we work together to achieve insane goals. This forward thinking approach is what keeps me motivated. Knowing that teammates are willing to help and go above and beyond to complete a task is refreshing. I both believe in the company and our mission to helps others (farmers) maximize their time and money. It's extremely rewarding!
