We Buy Canola

Cash injection today. Higher profits tomorrow.

Who We Are

We Are The World’s First Agricultural Commodity Streaming Company

Input Capital is a brand new company based on the prairies that helps farmers with their working capital needs. We buy canola from farmers using multi-year contracts where we pay the majority of the cash upfront.

We believe that what you earn should be directly related to how hard you work. Too often in farming, it’s all hard work and no pay. We know it takes money to make money and that it is costly to be cash poor. Input Capital has introduced a new financial tool for producers that allows them to have cash upfront for crops yet to be planted. This program is geared for farmers looking for a cash injection for expansion, succession planning or to save money by purchasing inputs with cash. Our streaming contracts give you a leg up so you can maximize your yields and reach your full production potential.

This is the first time this kind of working capital has been available to farmers. Our funding helps you grow your business. Streaming contracts will make your farming operations more successful.

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

“Input Capital is amazing to deal with; I wish I had found them years ago. I am in the process of buying out my dad and this financing has helped me take a big step towards that goal. I would do another deal with them in a minute.”

- Randal Schmidt, Carrot River, SK.

“Input Capital treats us like old friends. They invested hours of face time with us and they care about our success. They return calls and texts quickly and check in with us regularly. And best of all, we love delivering canola against our contract instead of coming up with the cash. We will definitely be working with them again in the future.”

- Gerry Schiltroth, Ridgedale, SK.

“There’s a substantial amount of stress involved with a traditional operating line of credit from a financial institution. The financing I get from Input Capital is a better fit and I’d encourage any farmer needing operating capital to investigate what Input Capital offers. Streaming financing may sound complex, however, it’s about paying for capital with production.”

- Darin Pedersen, Nokomis, SK.
