Farm Services

Agronomy Solutions

Thompsons is a full-service agribusiness retailer that provides Ontario farmers with grain marketing and agronomy expertise, crop inputs including seed, crop protection and plant nutrients. If you’re considering transitioning to organics, we can help with that too. We have an organic specialist on staff and specially trained organic champions at our branch facilities.

Thompsons FarmPro

Recently, we’ve introduced Thompsons FarmPro — a new tool to help farmers look at their operation in a different way. By scrutinizing every acre, we begin to show their return on investment, instead of simply yield. Now we’re able to help them direct valuable resources and money towards more profitable areas of the farm. Contact your local Thompsons Ag Consultant today for a demonstration of Thompsons FarmPro.

Thompsons own Colin Elgie, Agronomy Solutions Specialist; Bryan Stennett, Sales Manager – Farm Services and Seed; and Heather Moffatt, Grain Originator, spoke with Farms.com at Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show in Woodstock, Ontario.

Factors influencing crop yield are not consistent across every field. Variations in soil characteristics, management practices and environment controls can drastically influence yield from one location to another.

The goal of precision farming is to collect and monitor the information about the variability of soil and environmental conditions in order to maximize the efficiency of crop inputs within a particular area of the farm field.

Precision Ag Services is only one aspect of what we can do for your farm business. Thompsons takes a holistic approach and digs deep into all aspects of your farming operation to design an integrated farm management solution. An Advanced Agronomy Solution, custom designed just for you.
