Biography

Brian and his wife Arvel operate Genetic Potential Ltd out of Mannville Alberta. With two business partners they have created a collaborative mixed farm, raising cattle, growing flax, faba beans, green and yellow peas, oats, barley, sunflowers, corn, canola, and wheat. This unique model has allowed for the diversification into many different crops involving a complex high residue rotation promoting soil health and greatly reduced pesticide, fertilizer, and fuel use. Programming and agricultural hardware development are a sideline and hobby but also allow giving back to the Ag community with open source software, project ideas, and the opportunity to learn and share.
