    AGRI-TREND® Agrology is pleased to welcome: Robert Woolf as AGRI-TREND® Geo-Coach® based in Coaldale, AB to our growing network!

    I have been married for 34 years with 3 married children and 7 grandchildren. I enjoy living in Coaldale and spending time with my family. I was born and raised in Southern Alberta, spending most of my time on a mixed family farm near Cardston, where I gained a great love for all aspects of agriculture. When I left school I spent the next 16 years farming, with some crop share. In 1993 I joined a local John Deere Dealership and worked in many departments over the next 21 plus years. The past 8 years my role evolved into a GPS, technology, and equipment specialist. I was instrumental in bringing agronomics into that dealership. Now I am excited to bring a wealth of knowledge that I have gained to AGRI-TREND, as a Geo-Coach in Southern Alberta. I offer a deep passion and understanding of the producers need to succeed in combining science and technology together to help produce the food and fuel necessary to sustain the world population growth.
