Wade Barnes

President and CEO, Farmers Edge Precision Consulting

Wade pioneered the commercial application of Variable Rate Technology (VRT) to improve fertilizer use efficiency. Working with leading edge farmers since 2006, Farmers Edge has diverted an estimated 90,000 tonnes of phosphate fertilizer from being needlessly applied to fields. Over the past 8 years, VRT has improved nitrogen use efficiency, reduced nitrous oxide emissions and increased carbon sequestration on over 2 million acres globally providing an estimated net reduction of 75,000 tonnes of CO2e. Using a 4R Nutrient Stewardship approach (right source @ the right rate, time, and place) VRT delivers positive impacts on air, water, and soil quality while maintaining high yields and improving net returns.
