O’Brien County Ag Supply Teams Up With Meristem Crop Performance

“Meristem has a product portfolio geared to helping every farmer we serve gain a better ROI…”

06 September 2023, Iowa: O’Brien County Ag Supply, and Meristem Crop Performance Group, LLC, based in Columbus, Ohio, today announced a new dealership agreement to serve farmers in Northwest Iowa.

Under the new relationship, owners Brennen Triplett and Joshua Rausch and their team at O’Brien County Ag Supply will carry the Meristem Crop Performance product line and become Meristem’s ally in helping Iowa farmers make the most of every dollar they spend on crop inputs.

“Brennen, Josh and their crew are well-known in Iowa for helping every customer they serve make the most of every seed they plant and win consistently, season after season,” said Mitch Eviston, Meristem Founder and CEO, in announcing the agreement. “We’re excited to be able to come alongside to help them serve those farmers and gain from their field experience as we add new products.”

“Meristem has a product portfolio geared to helping every farmer we serve gain a better ROI (return on investment),” said Triplett of the engagement. “Our team is dedicated to providing high-quality products and superior service for our farmer-customers and we’ve worked to expand our services to include seed sales, comprehensive chemical sales, and application in conjunction with professional agronomic assistance.”

In 2014, Triplett purchased Black’s Farm Store, a 35-year-old business in Primghar. After the purchase, he and his business partner, Joshua Rausch, formed O’Brien County Ag Supply. Both Triplett and Rausch are agronomists, the former having studied at Iowa State and the latter at South Dakota State University. O’Brien County Ag Supply provides application services to crops at pre-plant and pre- and post-emergent. They can apply fungicides and insecticides to post-emergent crops with a HAGIE high-clearance sprayer, enhancing coverage to better protect the crop and gain a better response compared to aerial application. In addition, they offer yield-enhancing tools from the 360 Yield Center.

The O’Brien County Ag team will now add the Meristem product portfolio, including HOPPER THROTTLE™ planter box treatments, REVLINE® biologicals and plant growth regulators, TRUTRACK® drift control, AQUADRAFT® water conditioners and surfactants, UPSHIFT® starter fertilizers and HOMESTRETCH® micronutrients and foliar nutritionals. Of special interest is EXCAVATOR®, powered by MICROBILIZE™, a new biological designed to break down tough crop residue and release nutrients faster.

“We’ve seen outstanding results from several of these Meristem products already,” said Rausch, “and Meristem’s approach of helping growers make the most of every pass through the field fits well with our mission to help farmers improve their yield and ROI.”
