Great Bend Co-op Featured in Successful Farming Article

Apr 17, 2019

Great Bend Co-op customer John Blackwell and Great Bend Co-op Precision Ag Specialist Mark Bauer were recently featured in an article by Successful Farming magazine. The article was published in print and online. 

In the article, the growth and development of Great Bend Co-op's decision ag platform and technology systems over the past few years are highlighted. It focuses on why technology is key to being a successful partner in the ever-changing agriculture economy. 
 

“After a meeting with WinField United, the Great Bend team members felt like they were so far behind when it came to decision ag services,” says Mark Bauer, who is a precision agriculture specialist. “They decided if they didn’t do something fast, other companies would come into their territory and offer these services to growers.”

In 2014, the co-op launched Decision Ag Services. With satellite imagery, variable-rate technology, and data collection, the team in Great Bend, Kansas, is using current technology to help the brothers be more profitable and sustainable.
