About the company:

We are developing our online commodity marketplace which allows farmers to find more sellers and buyers and to identify the best possible deals out there. We are looking forward to giving you access to the Agreena platform, from which we will enable farmers to easily access and identify the best prices on agricultural commodities delivered by both local and international market players. Both farmers and trading houses will be able to post offers in this open cross-border online market place. We hope you will join us on this journey towards a more open market. 

About Agreena
Agreena is an exciting, dynamic, and purpose-oriented organisation united in a mission to mobilise farmers and corporations to unlock the value of nature and help restore the planet. While we’re rooted in agriculture, finance, and technology, our team of experts range from soil carbon scientists and software developers to market strategists and regulatory affairs experts. Over 200 employees across more than 40 nationalities are gathered under the common Agreena flag – either working from our headquarters in Copenhagen, offices in London, or remotely across Europe.

As a rapidly scaling climate agtech, Agreena provides solutions that drive both environmental and financial sustainability in farming. We have helped farmers across 17 countries in their conversion journey from conventional agriculture to regenerative farming practices to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and remove CO2 from the atmosphere, storing it in soil. Our company offers a supportive and positive work environment with opportunities for learning, leading and growth no matter where you are in your professional journey. We believe in giving our employees a lot of responsibility, and we encourage new thinking, innovation and fun.

Agreena is seeking part-time seasonal agricultural data collection contractors across Canada to help with in-field data collection as part of ongoing sustainability projects tracking
regenerative agricultural practices in agri-food supply chains.

Responsibilities:
●Travelling to local designated areas of interest and collecting information including
which crop is being grown and the level of tillage intensity.
●Following a simple protocol to document the required type data per field
●Logging the information for each field on a mobile device using an easy to use app.
●The field surveys are conducted from the roadside.

●Experience working in agriculture to a level where you can reliably and confidently
identify major crops and the type and intensity of tillage performed.
Timeline:
●This work will take place from April 2024 to June 2024
●The work is flexible to your schedule as you choose the number of hours and when
you work but a minimum of 16 hours (2 days) per week is required.

Compensation: 
●Employment is contract based and all surveyors are self-employed, meaning all tax
responsibilities are that of the contractors
●Payment will be made per data point collected ($4.50/point)
●The average payment for a full day of data collection (8 hours collecting) is 350 - 400
CAD plus the expenses listed below:
