GROWMARK named to the InformationWeek 500

Bloomington, IL, (AgPR), Oct. 29, 2009 - GROWMARK has been named to InformationWeek magazine’s list of the top 500 most innovative users of business technology in the United States. This is the sixth time the agricultural cooperative has made the list.

“This recognition confirms the quality of the work we’re doing in information technology and gives us a measurement against other top organizations,” said Tim Piper, GROWMARK executive director of IT and chief information officer.

To be eligible for consideration, a company must have revenue of $250 million or more, complete a thorough questionnaire about their use of technology, and submit an essay about a recently completed project. This year, GROWMARK submitted its new employee website, eResource, as an example of adapting technology to fit specific needs.

GROWMARK is a regional cooperative providing agriculture-related products and services and grain marketing in the Midwest and Ontario, Canada. FS brand farm supplies and related services are also marketed to farmers in the northeastern United States and by GROWMARK subsidiaries. Additional information is available at
