Simplot Joins PrecisionAg Institute

Simplot, PrecisionAg Institute

Simplot Grower Solutions, part of the J. R. Simplot Co., has joined the PrecisionAg Institute, the industry’s independent global initiative dedicated to the sharing of precision agriculture practices, ideas, research, products, services and success stories.

“At Simplot Grower Solutions, we seek out the latest technology and science to better understand the total crop and its potential,” explains Allan Fetters, director of technology for Simplot. “The PrecisionAg Institute is generating great research and information that we can add to our arsenal of services to help our farmer-customers grow more. This is important work that we are pleased to support.”

The company has joined as a “PrecisionAg Institute Partner,” reinforcing its commitment to the greater adoption and efficient, effective use of precision agriculture technology. Simplot joins other leading agricultural companies and will be providing guidance and counsel as activities and initiatives move forward in the months ahead.

Through advocacy, education and research, the Institute intends to advance precision technology and its efficiency, stewardship and profitability on farms around the world. Fetters says that it’s a unique time for more growers to adopt this technology.

“Our grower-customers are looking for better ways to make the most of all their inputs, whether nutrients, seed, or diesel fuel,” he says. “Precision ag tools and the advice we offer at our retail outlets can help to increase efficiency and profitability, and improve overall farm management.”

This skilled management of inputs and yield, says K. Elliott Nowels, Director of the PrecisionAg Institute, is also providing both farmers and crop input dealers a positive message about conservation and stewardship.

“Research shows that when growers put precision technology to use, they are able to optimize their use of land, water, seed and nutrients and that benefits everyone,” he says. “The support of our partners will help us reach more growers with that message and also help us tell the story of agriculture’s resource stewardship.”
