ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) — A farmer cooperative in the James River Valley in North Dakota and South Dakota has bought a precision agronomy company based in the South Dakota city of Watertown.
The Aberdeen-based Wheat Growers co-op did not give the purchase price for MZB Technologies. Wheat Grower CEO Dale Locken says the co-op plans to further develop the company's agriculture software and precision farming system.
The Wheat Growers grain and agronomy co-op has more than 5,400 member-owners in the Dakotas who grow wheat, corn and soybeans.
