SmartPro pairs Farmers Edge industry-leading precision digital technology with the trusted agronomic expertise agricultural retailers, representatives, crop advisors, and agronomists are known for. With unique offerings powered by field-centric data collection, advanced analytics, integration and real-time data, ag professionals will have access to insights that provide a deeper understanding of growers’ needs, allowing them to deliver a higher level of service.

SmartPro relieves the burden of manual work for ag professionals enabling smart decision-making and creating more opportunities for growth.”

“This is an opportunity to collaborate with Farmers Edge to help growers recognize the power of their farm data. It has proven to be valuable as I expand my business,” said Travis Wiens, agronomist and owner of Annex Agro who was the first to access SmartPro tools. “Up until now, options for agronomists were limited, but SmartPro goes beyond the program that most of us were using. Not only does it help me save time and costs, it also brings tremendous value to my growers by increasing their efficiency and profitability.”
