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 2020 list of the largest ag dealerships and cooperatives.


In total, 15 companies call The Hawkeye State home, ranging from smaller independent dealerships like Wickman Chemical (ranked No. 94 overall), to larger cooperatives such as Landus Cooperative (No. 27). Among those 15 retailers, eight are cooperatives while seven are independent local dealerships. In addition, four Iowa retailers were within the $101-$200 million revenue range in 2020, which was the highest for the state. This was followed by four retailers in the $66-$100 million revenue range, three within $51-$65 million, and two each within the $26-$50 million and $25 million or less ranges.
