Strategic farming innovations – A testament by Calvin Wood


Calvin Wood, a seasoned second-generation farmer, operates near Corning, Saskatchewan, cultivating a variety of crops since 1981. Embodying the spirit of innovation, he has engaged in diverse farming projects and collaborations, continuously seeking advancements in farming practices.

The challenge: Navigating one’s way around grain markets isn’t easy

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. Calvin found himself sitting in front of the computer and searching for daily market information on his own, consuming a lot of his time.

Calvin discovered Decisive Farming through TELUS Agriculture’s visible presence in the community. The Know-Risk™ solution, offered by Decisive’s partners at StoneX, caught his attention as a tool for intelligent crop marketing, appealing due to its strategic approach to sales percentages rather than unpredictable market timing.
