Each consultant advises on a minimum of 10,000 acres and takes pride in helping their customers maximize their crop production. ICAN members must meet their provincial requirements for practicing agrology, abide by a Code of Ethics, and meet an annually approved standard of continuing education to build on their agronomic knowledge base.
By choosing to partner with one of our members, farmers tap into the agronomic skills and experience of that consultant. They also gain a professional who recognizes the benefits of working with a network of agrologists to gain education, insight and resources.
