Proagrica, part of RELX and a global provider of independent network, workflow and analytics solutions to the agriculture and animal health industries, has acquired CDMS, a provider of compliance data and solutions to support agronomic recommendations and crop production decisions.
CDMS will operate within Proagrica’s Ag Solutions division and will retain the CDMS brand. Liz Magill and Scott Mueller will continue to lead the business as president and executive vice president respectively.
Matt Waits, president of Ag Solutions at Proagrica, says: “CDMS’ renowned compliance engine and crop protection data complements our geo-spatial solutions and precision-agriculture assets. The acquisition brings much to both parties and will allow each to deepen existing customer relationships and support our continued product development.
Liz Magill, president of CDMS, comments: “Proagrica understands the importance of maintaining our independence within the industry, but also offers the means to grow the business into new services and new geographies. Proagrica checks all the right boxes for us and our future ambitions. We’re looking forward to developing a global business with the backing and support of an outstanding team there.”
