Growers Edge and CropX Partner on Soil Sensing

From article:

Growers Edge Financial, Inc. and CropX have announced a strategic partnership that the companies say will help reduce risk and improve yields for farmers.

The partnership gives farmers the confidence to adopt new technologies that drive sustainability and business success in an era of increased environmental and business challenges, says Joe Young, president and chief operating officer for Growers Edge, an Iowa-based company that provides proprietary data analytics to helps growers make sound agronomic and financial decisions.

“The financial instruments available today do not meet the needs of farmers who want to embrace new ways to improve the profitability and sustainability of their operations,” Young said in a press release announcing the partnership.
