New Partnership: Farmers Edge, Allied Cooperative Link Up
With the all-in-one Farmers Edge Precision Solutions platform, Allied’s more than 2,200 customers have access to the wide range of products and services that separate Farmers Edge growers from their peers. These products and services include, but are not limited to, field-centric data collection, “boots on the ground” support, access to one of the fastest growing networks of on-farm weather stations, integrated farm management software, and a wide variety of advanced decision support tools, including Corn Manager – the most comprehensive corn management system on the market today.
With grower partners spanning from Adams to La Crosse, Allied Cooperative has a long and proud history of serving producers throughout the state, with roots dating back to 1917. Committed to partnering with innovation leaders, Allied, together with Farmers Edge, is growing with the needs of its customers, equipping them with cutting-edge technologies and services. Through this partnership, corn, soybean, potato, grain, and all other types of growers in the state will now be able to make better, real-time decisions and address the critical crop issues that impact overall profitability on the farm.
“At Allied, we work everyday in the fields with Wisconsin growers, and one of the things that we consistently hear from our customers is that they’re looking for one, comprehensive, integrated precision agriculture platform that will address all their needs. Farmers Edge offers that platform,” said Rob Shields, Precision Ag Manager at Allied Cooperative. “As we move into the next busy growing season, we’re excited to work with Farmers Edge to ensure that growers throughout central and western Wisconsin have access to the data and decision agriculture services that will boost their yields and bolster their bottom lines.”
Today, all Allied growers will have access to the Farmers Edge Precision Solutions platform. Easily integrated with growers’ existing equipment and programs, Farmers Edge says Precision Solutions is a comprehensive turnkey system that includes: Variable Rate Technology, soil sampling and analysis, on-farm weather stations, in-field telematics and data transfer devices, high-resolution satellite imagery, field-centric data analytics, and a network of highly experienced, trusted advisors. This platform also includes the company’s Next-Gen FarmCommand software, a fully-integrated farm management platform designed to manage multiple data streams in a single system.
“The U.S. Midwest is one of the most vital agricultural regions, not just in North America, but in the world, so we’re proud to partner with Allied Cooperative to equip Wisconsin growers with the data-driven tools they need to optimize inputs, reduce costs, and ultimately make better decisions,” said Wade Barnes, President and CEO of Farmers Edge. “We share Allied’s belief that the farmer comes first, so our agronomists and customer support team will be there every step of the way to ensure that our growers are producing the most profitable crops possible.”
