Let’s be honest, managing a single farm can be difficult, let alone managing multiple operations. Some landowners prefer to tackle the duties themselves while others hire professional farm managers to handle the responsibilities. Agriculture consulting firm E4 Crop Intelligence has taken much of the guesswork out of this by capturing decades of field data across many states and offers several farm management options to growers, landowners, and more.
Established in 1999 and based out of the western-Iowa community of Woodbine, E4 Crop Intelligence provides a multitude of ag services to farmers across the United States. From soil and plant tissue testing and precision ag equipment to crop insurance and proprietary technology applications, E4 has proven to be an innovative industry leader.
When it comes to effective farm management, the process requires meticulous attention to detail. From planning and budgeting to benchmarking, E4’s consulting services help growers manage the critical farm data and details that ensure a smooth running and growing operation year after year. In addition to producing healthy crops, farming and farmland require growers to manage a staff, coordinate with farm managers, work with lenders, and more.
Whether you are a grower, landowner, or farm manager, farm management services from E4 assist by helping you make smart, informed business decisions for your operation. Going a step further, the Iowa-based company’s services allow you to see how your operation stacks up against others of a similar size and type (and identities remain confidential).
“We have been collecting widespread field data for more than 20 years,” said Greg Reisz, Founder and President of E4 Crop Intelligence. Reisz went on to say, “We bring fact-based insights through our E4 Vision app that can improve any ag operation’s management practices while identifying growth opportunities.”
