About Us:

Decisive Farming (DF) was founded with the purpose of synchronizing the overwhelming number of data sets that farmers typically manage. Combining boots-on-the-ground support, precision agronomics, including variable rate technology, information management services and crop marketing tools, DF provides a single integrated platform that acts as the crop grower’s primary operating system. The company currently represents over five million acres and is being used on 40 different crop types in North America.

In December 2019, DF was acquired by TELUS. The acquisition provides DF the support of a global leader in communications and digital technologies, enabling the company to grow in key markets and to accelerate the development of its integrated farm management solutions. TELUS Agriculture is a family of solutions that includes farm management systems, variable rate technologies, advanced imagery analytics and workflow management. 

To date, TELUS has acquired eight companies, including Farm At Hand and DF. As part of the TELUS Agriculture family, we are collaborating more closely with Farm At Hand. This partnership reflects our commitment to provide our customers with new opportunities that support on-farm decisions and help make farm management easier.

With a team of 80 professionals working remotely across Western Canada, we welcome and support those who love to learn by providing opportunities to grow professionally. We come from diverse cultural backgrounds and have fun hobbies. We treat each other with respect and kindness, value work-life balance and appreciate a good sense of humour.
