About Precision Planting
Precision Planting, LLC is the leading provider of practical and effective precision ag technologies to help make farmers smarter every season. Founded in Central Illinois, Precision Planting focuses on developing smart products that improve planting, liquid application and harvest operations on farms across the world. The company is also well-known for its unique and proven approach to addressing the current agronomic issues facing farmers and providing practical educational resources for improvement.
Precision Planting is different from other technology companies in that it takes the farmer’s existing equipment and maximizes the performance of the machinery. Adapting Precision Planting technologies is easy for farmers, saving them time and money, and making their planting and liquid applications more efficient. Precision Planting technologies have made the first pass with the planter the most important field trip all season long for thousands of farmer-customers who are able to seed a field or apply nutrients or seed treatments in a variable-rate method, with precise placement.
New technologies from Precision Planting are opening doors for farmers to take advantage of the data they collect on every field pass, from planting to harvest, and to use that data to increase production and profit potential by better managing input costs and ensuring the seeds they plant maintain their top-end yield potential at emergence and beyond.
In 2018, Precision Planting opened the Precision Technology Institute (PTI) in Pontiac, Illinois, a 200-acre agronomic research site, as well as a location where farmers can experience Precision Planting technologies and products in a real-farm environment. PTI is an educational site that brings agronomy, new technology and equipment to the forefront for the industry. Research at PTI focuses on creating best-use agronomic practices for precision ag technologies. Results from PTI research are delivered at Winter Conference.
Precision Planting is represented in the continental United States by a network of over 400 dealerships and provides technologies to agricultural equipment manufacturers around the world.
