Feb 24, 2021
Johnston, Iowa and Moundridge, Kansas — Growers Edge, a provider of data-driven financial technology (fintech) solutions for the agricultural industry, and Mid Kansas Cooperative (MKC) today announced a partnership to deliver an innovative, warranty-backed agronomic offer to their growers.
“The MKC Optimal Security program creates new opportunities for farmers to benefit from the potential of MKC products and services with confidence,” said Kent Nichols, Regional Sales Manager of MKC. “We are partnering with Growers Edge to offer this solution to our customers to encourage adoption of new technologies and practices to help boost their productivity and profitability.”
Growers Edge partners with retailers and input suppliers across the U.S. to deliver grower-relevant solutions to meet the ag industry’s ever-changing demands. In 2020, the company closed a $40 million Series B round of financing that will help speed the introduction of warranty-backed crop plans and deploy the company’s new end-to-end agricultural lending platform.
“We are excited to bring important new tools retailers and ag suppliers can tailor to their product line and customer needs,” said Tracy Linbo, Chief Commercial Officer of Growers Edge. “These offers help growers manage their risks involved with adopting new technologies but doesn’t limit the upside potential when yields exceed expectations.”
