Farmers Inc. and GreenPoint AG have successfully consolidated their agronomy businesses in the Greenville, Leland and Rolling Fork, Miss., areas. Farmers Inc. will continue to provide fuel along with products offered by the company’s retail store on Raceway Road in Greenville. GreenPoint AG will provide seed, crop nutrients, crop protection products, and services at their Leland location and both Rolling Fork locations.

The consolidation will combine the agronomy operations of Farmers Inc. in Greenville and Rolling Fork with GreenPoint AG’s locations in Rolling Fork and Leland. Both companies serve similar customer bases and principally provide seed, crop nutrients, crop protection products, and related services for growers who produce the trade area’s key crops of corn, cotton, and soybeans.

With headquarters in Greenville, Miss., Farmers Inc. will receive a minority ownership interest in GreenPoint AG, which was formed in 2012. Based in Memphis, Tenn., GreenPoint AG operates approximately 50 agronomy locations in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Kentucky. The consolidated agronomy business will operate as GreenPoint AG.

“In today’s highly competitive agronomy market, this consolidation will give our farmers more services and opportunities than ever before,” says Floyd Trammell, executive vice president/general manager of Farmers Inc. “GreenPoint AG’s size and scale will be a great benefit to all farmers in our area.”

“This is a great opportunity for both of our organizations to combine our efforts to better serve our market,” adds Tim Witcher, President/CEO of GreenPoint AG. “We are excited about the expertise that Farmers Inc. and GreenPoint AG bring together to provide more advantages and resources to area growers.”

Farmers Inc. is a stockholder corporation begun in 1956 when a group of farmers formed a charter and sold stock to other farmers in the Washington County, Sharkey County, Issaquena County, and Bolivar County areas. Today Farmers Inc. has more than 350 stockholders and services many farms in those same counties.

Farmers Inc. will continue to provide fuel to customers in its market along with products offered by the company’s retail store on Raceway Road in Greenville.

“Farmers Inc. is proud of its 58-year history of providing goods and services throughout the Delta and looks forward to providing fuel and products through ‘The Co-Op’ in the future,” says Trammell. “Our fuel and oil business is growing, and we intend to be the fuel supplier of choice to all our farmers.”
