Syngenta partners with Ram Trucks to help farmers enhance productivity through AgriEdge®

GREENSBORO, N.C., USA, March 1, 2019 – Syngenta has teamed up with Ram Trucks to help U.S. farmers overcome the challenges of today and tomorrow. AgriEdge®, a whole-farm program that combines secure data management across digital platforms and innovative product choices for every crop, is now included in the Ram AgPack.

​​​​​​​Ram AgPack is a unique collaboration of several agricultural organizations dedicated to delivering U.S. farmers a competitive edge. By helping them save on items they already planned to purchase, the initiative will give U.S. farmers the opportunity to maximize their return on investment. This improved ROI is compounded through access to AgriEdge.

AgriEdge is focused on empowering partners to make better decisions through the integration of data, analytics and agronomic experience. This exclusive program has helped growers maximize and sustain their return on investment for more than 15 years.

“Syngenta is committed to innovation that will help U.S. growers be more productive and more profitable,” said Aaron Deardorff, head of digital ag solutions at Syngenta. “AgriEdge gives growers the tools they need with the service to back them up. Our program was created by farmers, for farmers. Like Syngenta, Ram provides industry-specific service to farmers and ranchers.”

Dave Sowers, head of Ram Commercial Truck Marketing, added, “The Certified Ag Dealer program created an industry-exclusive network of elite agriculture dealerships, trained by farmers and ranchers. These Certified Agriculture Dealers also offer a benefits package that will save their customers thousands of dollars in capital and operating expenses when they purchase trucks from our Certified Agriculture Dealers. Ram AgPack can provide a real, immediate return on the farmers’ truck investment.”

Growers who purchase a new truck from one of more than 200 Certified Agriculture Dealers qualify for a one-year subscription of AgriEdge. Local AgriEdge specialists will work with eligible growers to identify the optimal digital technology for their farming operations.
