Grain Farmers of Ontario add elevators to SellSmart app

GUELPH - Elevators in 14 new locations across Ontario have been added to the Grain Farmers of Ontario’s SellSmart application.

This makes a  total of 41 locations with pricing now available through mobile communication devices.

SellSmart is a custom app for iPhone and BlackBerry users designed to put local price information at farmers’ fingertips.

The price data for corn, soybeans and wheat from the Chicago Board of Trade is adjusted with basis information from local elevators across the province.

The information is provided on a 10 minute delay.

With the 14 new elevator locations added to this app, more farmers can now find their local elevator information to view, compare and receive alerts on commodity prices.

The new locations include: Aylmer, Ayr, Beeton, Chesterville, Collingwood, Grand Valley, Guelph, Meaford, Mitchell, Port Hope, Sunderland, Tavistock, Woodstock and Wyoming.

In addition to these new locations, the app has also been updated to be compatible with new BB7 devices.

The SellSmart app is available for free in the BlackBerry App World and the Apple App Store.

Grain Farmers of Ontario (GFO) is the province’s newest and largest commodity organization, representing Ontario’s 28,000 corn, soybean and wheat farmers.

The crops these farmers grow cover 5 million acres of farm land across the province, generate over $2.5 billion in farm gate receipts, result in over $9 billion in economic output and are responsible for over 40,000 jobs in the province.
