Who We Are
At Aker, our mission is to inspire and impact agriculture with practical technology that is exciting and creates value in a true partnership with growers.
Founded in 2016, we emphasize how our work simplifies the everyday lives of our customers. Farming is a team effort, and we understand how difficult it is to keep track of coordinating staff, managing inputs, reacting to weather, moving equipment, cultivating a quality crop, monitoring market trends, and maintaining a profitable operation to support your family and community. Our team and partners live by the values of service, teamwork, integrity and impact to guide and motivate every task.
We work with farm managers who like to seize every opportunity and are open to change. Our work empowers our customers with trusted and timely answers to plan and manage every field. We achieve this by actively listening to growers and embracing their top field issues, while utilizing satellite, drone, and machine learning technologies to provide the most timely and accurate field insights. We are dedicated to transparency and delivering solutions that add real value and integrate seamlessly into their operations.
Made by growers. Built for life.
