Based in Idaho, our roots have grown to support agriculture across North America.
It’s a Dirty Job, Which is Why We Love It.
Built from the ground up by our founder J.R. Simplot, we have been farming for more than 90 years. Today, Simplot Grower Solutions (SGS) is growing in its position as a dynamic agribusiness leader with a full suite of exclusive products, cutting-edge technology and top-notch service. Despite our growth, we are still farmer focused and family run.
SGS Crop Advisors and agronomy experts are the foundation of our trusted reputation with farmers. We dig in on a local level to deliver field-proven advice and explore innovative ways to help you optimize your resources and profits.
At Simplot Grower Solutions, we are dedicated to your success over the long run because we know that farming is more than a job — it is your legacy.
J.R. Simplot created his first retail farm service called Simplot Soilbuilders. The first store was located behind the J.R. Simplot Company potato plant in Caldwell, ID.
Early branding of our proprietary line of fertilizers — Simplot Diamond Brand.
J.R. expanded his network of locations to other Idaho locations. Here are Simplot Crop Advisors in front of their location and their fleet truck.
Max Yield was Born
Max Yield, a Simplot Soilbuilders mascot, was created during the golden age of advertising characters.
By the mid 70s, Simplot Soilbuilders had grown to 86 locations in the western U.S. We also created a new logo.
Company leadership changed the name of the division from Simplot Soilbuilders to Simplot Grower Solutions, to emphasize the additional product and service offerings, as well as reaffirm our focus on the grower community.
Simplot Grower Solutions acquired Britz Fertilizers, Inc and expanded our presence in the Central Valley of California by 10 locations.
By 2014, Simplot Grower Solutions had expanded to 91 locations with 1,700 employees.
In early 2020, Simplot acquired Pinnacle Agriculture Distribution, doubling our footprint to more than 230 stores, making SGS one of the largest retailers in the US.
Expanding into Canada
Simplot Grower Solutions expanded into Western Canada by acquiring G-Mac’s AgTeam. This added 15 retail stores, more than 100 employees, and 40 agronomic advisors to the SGS team.
