Farmers around the world seek tools to help them better manage their operations and enable increased yields across multiple crops. This partnership offers solutions that integrate genetics, technology, information and agronomy, delivering powerful new capabilities and genuine value for farmers. The combined strengths of the two companies will provide enhanced expertise aimed at addressing the specific needs and challenges of European farmers.
Farmers Edge field-centric approach to digitizing farms coupled with machine learning and predictive modeling, not only revolutionizes how growers produce crops, but how they select and use products on the farm, too.

"We are excited to partner with Limagrain Europe to deliver our precision digital tools to the largest broad acre markets in the world, creating a new generation of breadbasket regions in previously untapped land," says Wade Barnes, CEO of Farmers Edge. "We share one and the same vision of making farm operations more lucrative and sustainable through technology and innovation."
