Founder of Agronomy Rx, Larry Eekhoff, has been in the agronomy and fertility mapping business long before “GPS” was a common acronym. A key player in the development of a prominent area cooperative’s fertility mapping software, Larry retired from the Ag Cooperative industry in 2013 and began consulting area growers seeking to maximize the productivity of their operations. As demand for his services grew, he established Agronomy Rx in Webster City and the business now serves over 165,000 acres in the Midwest.
In 2020, our business had grown to a point where we needed help. In July of 2020 we hired our first employee, Jeremy Swanson. Jeremy had been the Precision Ag Manager for a large cooperative where he focused on VRT technology, soil fertility, and data analytics. Before that he spent time selling seed, chemicals, and precision ag equipment for an independent farmer/seed dealer. Jeremy comes from a small family farm where he tests new practices and products. Since his passion is learning how to help farmers grow more with less, as well as be more profitable, his farm is a learning farm to help advance agriculture.
In 2022, we hired our second employee, Andrew Kinley. Andrew comes to us from a nearby cooperative and is excited to dive deeper into agronomy and soil science here at AgronomyRx.
Without healthy soil, there are no healthy plants. At Agronomy Rx, we have the tools to assess the current state of your acres, the technology to provide accurate recommendations for fertility applications, and innovative natural biological products to repopulate the rootzone with beneficial microbes depleted by common tillage practices.
