Remi Schmaltz, CEO and cofounder of Decisive Farming received the award on behalf of the team; “It is very exciting for our team at Decisive Farming to be recognized as leaders by a distinguished organization such as ASTech. We have worked extensively on fine tuning our data management platform My Farm Manager and this award recognizes the significant contribution it brings to agriculture.”

Innovative technology such as Decisive Farming’s My Farm Manager software is making farming more efficient and profitable. “We are increasing agricultural production while minimizing the environmental impact, and this is especially important in our current time of population growth and environmental fragility” stated Schmaltz.

Decisive Farming attributed their success to the strong support they have received from the National Research Council of Canada, AVAC, Tecterra and its customers over the past three years.
