Winnipeg-based Farmers Edge announced today it is establishing its American headquarters in Shakopee, MN. Operational locations will also be available to farmers in all major grain growing regions in the U.S., the company says.
“Our technology is a unique, one-of-a-kind system, that integrates data sources, direct from the field, into decision support information and crop management records,” says Kyle Kuepker, VP sales, Farmers Edge, based at the new U.S. office.
The company says the U.S. base builds on its existing market presence in Canada, South America, Eastern Europe and Australia.
Over the next 3 years, it is estimated that precision farming will increase 14% or 23 million acres across the U.S. Corn Belt.
“We are very excited to bring this cutting edge technology to growers throughout the United States and witness its growth potential for global agriculture,” says Wade Barnes, Founding Partner, president and CEO, Farmers Edge. “From the very beginning our vision has always been to support the advancement of agriculture both on the farm and globally.
