Over the years, I have been blessed to be involved in the local ag industry. My companies have worked with well-known agribusiness brands and start-up companies alike, helping to position them for stronger sales and growth. I see the real-life impact that our ag industry’s innovation and expertise have on the farm, from pioneers such as Melroe Company (Bobcat) and Steiger Tractor to Concord, Interstate Seed, Amity Technology, American Crystal Sugar Company and the mainstay contributions of North Dakota State University.

A couple of weeks ago, I was proud to have witnessed it again. the Grand Farm groundbreaking confirmed our region’s leadership role in agricultural innovation and technology – today and well into the future.

Grand Farm is not just a field, it is truly visionary initiative that will spark collaboration, experimentation, research and development for the next generation of agriculture. It is another example of our region leading the change in how the world farms.

Roger Reierson is the executive chairman of the board at RR46.
