CARLYLE - Recently, the Carlyle division of Precision Ag Services won a coveted Cargill award.

It was a 2022 North American award for having a high-performing plan facility for crop inputs. They finished first competing against all retailers in Mexico, Canada and the United States.

In the spring of 2021, Cargill purchased Precision Ag, which has four locations in southeast Saskatchewan: Griffin, Odessa, Carlyle and Carnduff. All existing employees were retained by Cargill and the quality of its Precision Ag service business has been noticed by the new owners. 

“If you want to go to a site that has a lot going on, then come to Carlyle in the spring when the customers are trying to put the crop in the ground. There is no shortage of activity at the Carlyle facility,” said Cargill area general manager Jody Magotiaux.

“Everyone in operations, customer service and sales functions work together to deliver a high standard of customer satisfaction to the clients they serve. This newly acquired Cargill input site truly strives to deliver exceptional results.

“The program in Carlyle revolves around crop nutrition. This is where their expertise lies, and they are known in the area for the proper fertility recommendations. They provide high-quality products along with top notch agronomy service, crop protection products and seed selections.

The employees in Carlyle truly follow their focus areas and approach by selling dead weeds, cultivating solutions and growing success.”

“It’s a pretty good feather in our cap for a local business to win an award such as this competing against all North America,” said Dan Reaves, who oversees product line support. “Over 60 per cent of the food stored in your fridge is indirectly processed by companies such as Cargill and Precision Ag.

“We are a local business that supports the local community. Buy local, support local.”
