Telus acquires Farm at Hand to further its efforts to help farms

Farm at Hand announced Tuesday that it has joined “the TELUS family,” in an effort to make the farm platform more user-friendly and provide more options.

The farm management platform, which was launched in 2012, makes it easier for growers to track farm inventory and manage field records — whether it be equipment, crop inventory, or sales.

A release sent out Tuesday morning from Farm At Hand says that access to tools will not change; the move will just further the hub that links together leading-edge software and internet of things (IoT) devices. They add that they will now be able to alert users to key changes, and offer advanced tools and information, which is a way of keeping track of everything in one central platform.

Chris Terris, VP of strategy, with TELUS Business Solutions says that TELUS is looking forward to the future. “We’re helping connect, track and modernize farms and welcoming Farm at Hand to the TELUS family will further that effort. We’re always looking at emerging areas where we can leverage data and technology to spur innovation, help organizations be more productive, and improve the lives of Canadians.”

Farm at Hand also feels the alliance of the two companies is good for agriculture, allowing TELUS to “make a commitment to help the industry that our food system is built on.”
