We are Sollio Agriculture. We support farmers across Canada to help them maximize their performance, keeping in mind that there are only 24 hours in a day and 365 days in a year.
We bring together passionate people devoted to helping each other and moving forward together. These are men and women who are not afraid to work hard and get their hands dirty, every day. For them, agriculture is about family, community, and food.
Our pan-Canadian presence means that we’re there for them, on-site, when and where they need us. With our partners’ facilities as well as our own, we now have a total of 320 locations in nine provinces. Our goal is to support our farmers and the local areas where they operate. In short, we’re both close by and everywhere they need us to be. Our advisors are their advisors—the people who have always been by their side and know every acre of their local area. sollio.ag/en
