TPA to work closely with ag industry’s leading global forum



OLATHE, Kan.-- Topcon Precision Agriculture (TPA) has announced support for the PrecisionAg Institute, the industry’s independent global initiative dedicated to the sharing of precision agriculture practices, ideas, research, products, services and success stories.

“Growers today are looking to spread their management ability over more acres to be more efficient and more productive”

“Growers today are looking to spread their management ability over more acres to be more efficient and more productive,” said Michael Gomes, TPA director of marketing and business development. “By encouraging adoption of these tools, the PrecisionAg Institute is helping farmers become smarter and grow more. That’s important work that we are pleased to support with our time and financial resources.”

The company has joined as a “PrecisionAg Institute Partner,” reinforcing its commitment to the greater adoption and efficient, effective use of precision agriculture technology. Topcon joins other leading agricultural companies and will be providing guidance and counsel as activities and initiatives move forward in the months ahead.

Through advocacy, education and research, the Institute intends to advance precision technology and its efficiency, stewardship and profitability on farms around the world. Gomes says that it’s a unique time for more growers to adopt this technology.

“Farmers are looking for better ways to make the most of all their inputs, whether nutrients, seed or diesel fuel,” he said. “Precision ag tools help to increase efficiency and profitability, and improve overall farm management.”

Topcon Precision Agriculture is a business unit of Topcon Positioning Systems, Inc. (TPS). TPS designs and manufactures precise positioning products and solutions for the global surveying, construction, agriculture, civil engineering, mapping and GIS, asset management and mobile control markets. TPS’ parent company, Topcon Corporation (Tokyo Stock Exchange – 7732), was founded in 1932.
