Topcon and Farmers Edge sign licensing agreement

07/17/2013 @ 7:43pm

Bridging the gap between food industry stakeholders is the cornerstone behind the newly signed agreement between Topcon Precision Agriculture and Farmers Edge. The focus of the agreement centers around integrating Topcon’s SGIS agronomic desktop software into the Farmers Edge web-based precision farm management platform, Precision Edge.

“The licensing and integration of our SGIS software with Precision Edge has the ability to bridge the gap between the various stakeholders in the agriculture industry and continues to help expand the customer base for the SGIS suite of products," says Mike Gomes, director of strategic business development for Topcon Precision Agriculture.

Precision Edge is a system that enables food companies, input retailers, agronomists and farmers to manage field centric data, variable rate technology, remote sensing, crop surveillance and field information.

SGIS enables and simplifies variable rate applications for agronomists and custom applicators.

“The integration of SGIS into Precision Edge will allow Farmers Edge to better service our clients by adding several important components, such as yield analysis and a more robust layering tool for farm data,” says Wade Barnes, president and CEO of Farmers Edge.
