Kroeker Farms

Staying Ahead of the Growth Curve with SAP Business One and ProjectLine

Kroeker Farms Logo

Kroeker Farms is a family owned farm that focuses on growing potatoes and other organics on approximately 9,000 acres. They are moving more and more acres from conventional to ecological harvest so they can use less (irrigation) and grow more (rotation crops). With the support of ProjectLine, Kroeker Farms has built custom applications that build on the core SAP Business One platform to help them farm better and stay ahead of the curve.
