Top 7 Ag Retailers Exceeding $1 Billion in 2018 Sales
Rankings of any kind are often top heavy. Take the newly released CropLife 100, for instance. Of the 100 companies on the list, only seven firms generated more than $1 billion in retail sales in 2018. In total, this top-heavy group had $20.5 billion in retail sales in 2018, which is an incredible 67% of total CropLife 100 sales. On average, the retailers in this group made $2.9 billion, served 27 states, and had 376 retail outlets. The top seven retailers consist of five independent dealerships and two cooperatives, and, a bit of an oddity, three now call Colorado home. To find out which companies made that 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.
