    Weyburn, Saskatchewan (December 12, 2012) - Tom Staples, President and CEO of Echelon Ag, sat down with the Globe and Mail to discuss the company's expansion as well as his unwavering passion for agricultural technology.

    "I founded Echelon Ag Inc. in 2007 as a result of a passion to improve agriculture in my home province, Saskatchewan. Echelon has grown over the last five years and recently we hired our 20th employee," commented Tom Staples, President and CEO, Echelon Ag. "Our expansion has moved from the southeast corner of Saskatchewan to include the whole province, Alberta and into the grain belt of the United States."

    The precision farming technology offered by Echelon Ag allows farmers to maximize the output of their land. This includes variable rate application and GPS technology on farming machinery. Staples is passionate about the combination of science and technology that Echelon offers to improve farmers' decision making.

    "Being self-employed has given me the freedom to follow through on ideas or concepts I have," concluded Staples. "Picture in your mind where you want to be in your career in 20 years. You are not able to plan each step in how you are going to get there, but ensure that each step in your career moves you toward that goal."
