WEST FARGO, N.D. and WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Feb. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Titan Machinery Inc.

"Farmers Edge continues to innovate precision agriculture, getting farmers from data to decisions easier and faster," says David Meyer, CEO of Titan Machinery. "Daily satellite imagery, reliable machine connectivity, field-centric weather, and other data feed FarmCommand - the integrated farm management platform - giving growers quick insights into factors impacting their crop and equipment, regardless of brand. Farmers Edge has trained technicians and agronomists across our territory to work side-by-side with our Precision experts to install, train, optimize, and provide ongoing field support to our customers."
The food and agriculture chain is one of the most promising industries in which big data can bring about transformational change. Farmers Edge is intensely dedicated to advancing the implementation of machine learning and data analytics to give both growers and agricultural professionals the information they need to make the best possible decisions. Connecting industries and breaking barriers in agriculture, Farmers Edge is actively forging new partnerships that showcase the value of field-centric and integrated data management. In 2017, they announced an exclusive partnership with Planet for high-quality, high-frequency satellite imagery, and most recently announced an alliance with PartnerRe that will enable data-driven customization of grower insurance solutions. Ron Osborne, CSO of Farmers Edge remarked, “We’re very excited about our partnership between Titan Machinery and Farmers Edge. Both companies are thought leaders, and this unique collaboration will deliver valuable, innovative and integrated solutions to farmers and their dealers, around the world.”
