Origin Story

In 2011, Intelligent Agricultural Solutions was formed as a joint venture between Barry Batcheller of Appareo Systems and Howard Dahl of Amity Technology. The founders saw potential for using emerging technologies to reduce costs and improve efficiency, ultimately improving yields for farmers. Their first mission was to solve a big problem for air seeders – blockage monitoring systems were unreliable. Farmers were fed up with the false alarms that came from dirty, dust-covered optical sensors. Therefore, Intelligent Ag approached the problem from a new angle – listening to the seed flow instead of looking for it. Thus, the acoustic blockage monitor was born.  

More than a decade later, our acoustic technology continues to be the industry’s most reliable blockage monitor for air seeders, and we continue to expand that technology to provide blockage monitoring solutions in other types of equipment.  

In 2014, AGCO Corporation acquired Amity’s ownership in the joint venture, and continued forward in the collaboration with Appareo to focus on the need for more advanced electronic technology centered around data collection, wireless communication, advanced sensors, and intelligent machine control. 

In 2022, AGCO Corporation acquired Appareo, therefore wholly owning Intelligent Ag. The team at Intelligent Ag continues to be focused on developing technologies for sensing applications, machine health monitoring, and innovative electromechanical devices and systems that can be retrofitted to existing equipment, with the goal of getting more farmers access to new technologies, regardless of OEM brand. 

Award Recognitions

“I will not go back to running a drill without a blockage monitor.”

– Blaine Lundgren, Kulm, ND

“Installation was very simple, straight-forward, and it worked right out of the box.”

– Mark Wagner, Monango, ND

“We’ve run a lot of different crops through. The row sensors pick up big seeds, little seeds… it’s worked pretty well.

The sensitivity of it to pick up the seeds, no matter what size seed was going through it, really impressed me. I’m not sure that other monitors would give me that accuracy.”

– Troy Uglem | Northwood, ND

“We had total confidence after we used the system for a few days that it was dependable.”

– Paul Korsmo | Northwood, ND

“I’ve been very impressed with the quality of the product, and the accuracy of it.”

-Troy Uglem |Northwood, ND

“I will not go back to running a drill without a blockage monitor.”

– Blaine Lundgren | Kulm, ND

“It’s been more than worth the investment. The blockage monitor has worked flawlessly.”

– Paul Korsmo | Northwood, ND
