When it comes to choosing a location for a company headquarters in the ag retail market, it’s not surprising that CropLife 100 organizations zeroed in on the state of Iowa. In fact, no U.S. state is represented more often in our 2018 list of the largest ag dealerships and cooperatives. In total, 15 companies call The Hawkeye State home, ranging from smaller independent dealerships like Smith Fertilizer & Grain (ranked No. 95 overall), to larger cooperatives such as Landus Cooperative (No. 25). To find out all of the Iowa-based companies that made the list (in reverse order of sales), view the slideshow above.
Editor’s note: Companies included in the CropLife 100 listings were limited to independent dealerships and cooperatives that offer fertilizer, crop protection, seed, and custom application services. Figures do not include a host of services, such as data management, consulting/scouting, or grain elevator revenue. Dealerships and cooperatives are ranked in order by total sales in their respective sales group.
