As winter gives way to spring, a new growing season is upon us. A number of factors will dictate your crops’ success or failure. Some are controllable, but Mother Nature often has a few surprises up her sleeve.

To generate the greatest possible yield from every crop, you’re challenged to use both art and science. Solving that puzzle requires great operational decisions — and nothing is more essential than having the latest, best ag-focused information.

Since 1984, we’ve brought real-time news, weather, and markets to American farmers. Today, we are widely recognized as the leading provider of unique, independent insights and digital support tools in the North American ag industry.

We continually invest in proprietary tools and methods to bring you unique information and insights. Our newest solutions, which will launch in time for planting:

  • A new nitrogen management tool that uses proven technology to boost yields and cut costs
  • A spray outlook designed to help you minimize drift and inversion risks while maximizing spray windows

As you get started this season, know that we’re here for you. We can help you navigate the knowns and unknowns. Share your planting stories, ask for advice, and engage with other producers on any of our social media channels:
