Welcome to Progressive Ag International

Our Mission

Progressive Ag International is an international agricultural company aiming to provide quality service that helps increase agricultural expansion and financial returns in developing countries. Through improved technology transfer and better production methods, we believe that the developing world has the ability and resources to provide sufficient food for its own people. It is our desire be a valuable resource to the producers and governments of these countries in their attempt to accomplish this goal.

Our Services

Equipment – We serve our clients by locating, purchasing, and shipping agricultural equipment and other assets from the United States to countries all over the world. We also assist in obtaining funding through the international banking community. We even act as a direct investor in selected join ventures.

Consulting – We can help in project design, development, implementation and marketing. Our years of experience and broad knowledge of the international agricultural business gives investment institutions a confidence in knowing that there is a solid management team committed to the projects in which they are investing.

Training – The most efficient way to teach producers the needed knowledge and skills is to be in position showing Good Agricultural Practices (GAP). By providing management and teaching marketing strategies, we can teach how to compete in the global economy. Through our in-country farm model projects, Farmer to Farmer exchange programs and Certified Farm Technician programs (offered by US colleges), we can help our clients be more successful.

Our Story

Progressive Ag International was formed in 2000 by agricultural producers who saw the growing surplus of equipment in the agricultural industry here in the United States and the need for the same equipment in developing countries. Our initial charter was to find innovative methods to rehabilitate old farm machinery which had been discarded and find a use for it in where it was needed . We decided to market the rehabilitated equipment into the developing countries, particularly Africa where the need was great. On our inaugural visit to Western and Eastern Africa, we found that there was a shortage of even the most rudimentary equipment. We also discovered that there was a lack of commitment by banks to fund capital investment in agricultural equipment and processing facilities. That visit shaped how we do business today.
