AgJunction announces its cloud services now reach over 30 million acres

AgJunction recently announced a major milestone of reaching over 30 million acres through its cloud-based services.

AgJunction has announced that it now supports over 30 million unique production acres through its Cloud Services Division. The company provides hardware and software solutions for precision agriculture.

"We could not be more pleased with the progress of our Cloud Services Division since our acquisition of AgJunction in early 2012," said Rich Heiniger, AgJunction president and CEO at the 2013 InfoAg conference. "Our company has been through a significant amount of change over the last year and the leadership provided by our State College, PA-based Cloud Services team has been extraordinary, delivering system enhancements and exceeding customer expectations."

Hemisphere GPS acquired AgJunction in January 2012, and since then, unique production acres served through the cloud-based system have increased at a 72% annual growth rate.

Heiniger reported a similar growth rate for the number of retail locations utilizing the system, now approaching 1,800. "The market is recognizing value in an integrated data management solution,” added Mr. Heiniger. “AgJunction is unique, having established ourselves as a neutral and enabling partner with our customers; that is the foundation of our precision agriculture strategy."

Also during the session at InfoAg, Dave Nerpel, precision account manager, introduced several new system features including a new iPad field mapping and soil sampling application, a multi-variable field data analytical tool, and satellite imagery integration developed in partnership with SatShot.
