In 1958, Norma and her family planted five acres of strawberries on rented ground. It took them 16 years to get into full-time farming. Norma drove school buses for strawberry pickers, drove trucks to haul sweet corn and beans, and she has hoed a lot of strawberries. Norma loves farming. What she loves about it is that the family can work together. Norma had four sons and now her son Raymond and his children, her grandchildren, and great-grandchildren all work together.

With BinManager – from the convenience of your smartphone – you can know the condition of stored grain without having to climb a ladder or stairs to monitor temperature and moisture. AGI BinManager is fully automated, meaning you can trust that grain is safe and in condition without returning to the bin to turn on or off fans and heaters.

With advanced algorithms to optimize fan and heater controls, you can be confident that your hard-earned harvest will be in condition when it is time to sell.
