Three retailers were awarded the 2016 Precision Impact Award during the annual Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) meeting today in Orlando.

Accepting the awards on behalf of their respective companies and regions were:

  • West-Plains Region: Caleb Schultz, Simplot Grower Solutions, Wray, Colorado
  • South Region: Tayler Mclane, MFA Agriservices, Bernie, Missouri
  • North Region: Chris Conway, Southern States, Richmond, Virginia

The award, sponsored by the Agricultural Retailers Association, SST Software and AgPro Magazine, recognizes local retail operations for their use of technology, input efficiency, grower engagement, environmental stewardship, innovation and profitability. A panel of industry judges evaluated entrants and determined the final winners.

Two representatives of each awarded company received complimentary registration and travel to participate in the annual ARA Conference and Expo.

AgPro will begin taking nominations for the 2017 Precision Impact Awards next spring. More information about the award and entry qualifications are available at
