American Edge Grain (AEG) is the first data-driven, virtual grain attribute exchange that connects farmers with grain with premium attributes to the end-users needing them. AEG is focused on helping farmers get the most value out of every bushel. American Edge Grain is a Virtual Incubator Resident at The Combine Incubator, an AgTech startup program.
AEG offers an end-to-end service from procurement to sales and delivery and everything in between. Grain management and certification, attribute analysis, real-time bushel availability, pricing, logistics, and delivery are all included in that end-to-end service. Additionally, they believe in attribute-driven marketing, including the following categories:
Elevated Protein, Oil, or Starch
Non-GMO or Organic
Volume, Timing, and Price
Management Practices (Regenerative or Sustainable)
American Edge Grain allows for both the ease and reliability of commercial aggregators while transacting in a way that rewards both the producers and the customers. With their Dashboard Plus+ tool, customers have access to a secure database that catalogs grain inventory by attribute, price, and producer location. Additionally, AEG facilitates the direct transaction between producer and consumer. Their dashboard includes a private contract management system that allows customers and producers to track contracts, invoices, certification, pathway tracking, and more.
AEG has 50+ years of experience in the field, and so far, they have assessed 30 million bushels. They have worked with 65 producers and 11 end users to aid farmers in getting the most value out of every bushel produced. We are proud to have American Edge Grain as a Virtual Incubator Resident at The Combine.
